    Does anyone know if exam boards take into account the current situation in the UK when deciding on an A2 exam question? For example, if there's this huge debate going on in society about how the elderly are being left out in society would there be a chance that for that year, OCR will be like "Hey look at all this drama surrounding Age inequality maybe we should do a question on- Outline the view that the elderly are disadvantaged in the UK?"
