The 2016 paper was tougher than last years c2
Last year ?
This was the hardest paper up to date in IAL maths C12
even Jan 16 was hard but after solving this all other papers look damn easy.
Even June 2014 C12 looks a joke in front of this!
I hope and pray he is being sarcastic

Apart from being sarcastic, yes, the paper was really easy.
We can say that it was the hardest paper up to date but for me it was JUST easy.
And if someone finds the unofficial mark scheme for this Do upload it. I will also try to find and post it on the thread.
