    M1 Edexcel 2011, got my first and definitely last u in life! So glad I didn't have to mention Further Maths in my university application because I was doing 5 ASs, would have been rejected otherwise!

    Mei M4...although, given the amount of preparation I did, I think it went surprisingly well! Still pretty tough though!

    lol @ C1 and C2... Year 12s: C3 and C4 make those two look like doing your times tables.

    Hardest so far has been Chemistry F324 with I sat in January. So far I've only sat D1 in June which was eaaaaasy. I'm certain the hardest I will sit over the next few weeks is Chemistry F325 one of the two A2 physics exams or Maths C4.
    Lol @ C3 and C4

    Fp2 and 3 make those look like a joke.

    Hardest was probably Biology Aqa Unit 2. Last two questions were just like...what.

    Also, Ethics will haunt me.

    C1 exam for edexcel, far harder than C2 and M1 exams. o.0
    You trolling? C1 is the standing joke of Maths A-level. Once you get to Maths A2 you can do a C1 paper in about 5 minutes.

    I'm A2, just didn't sit C1/C2 last year, and I'm predicted an A*. That C1 paper was horrible!

    I wouldn't say its the worst exam I ever sat (F331 last year gets that!) but t wasn't nice and I can see why people struggled with it. Past papers were fine (apart from stupid mistakes) but this did seem a lot harder. Might have been the stress of being in exam conditions, but it definitely was slightly harder than normal. I know its my lowest UMS out of S1/M1/C2, and I'm more comfortable with getting better in C3 and probably C4 than that paper.
