Here's a suggestion then.
This is fair for all.

I don't mind now that Arsey isn't posting solutions as they aren't released to students.

Why doesn't he write his model solutions to all the papers on April 1st 2017 when EdExcel release all the 2016 series?

That way, EdExcel are happy and we can still be provided some resources.

They will be slightly of course, but the mark scheme is rubbish. Badly written and shows little evidence of consistency or understanding of method.

ExamSolutions posts the video solution to each exam of the recent series individually before each exam a day before - quite inconvenient if you have back-to-back exams.

Some people won't have the time to wait for video solutions.
Also, some model solutions have mistakes and aren't checked, or use bad methods.

It's a win-win for all.
We got a year for that to happen anyway if Arsey chooses to write the solutions when they come out in April next year.

He'd have a year to write them, which helps him too. No pressure to deliver them.

You agree, SeanFM ?

The (newer) mark schemes are definitely not rubbish, for many questions they contain various methods and approaches. They are actually quite detailed in which mark is awarded and where. I don't think Arsey's intentions for his solutions were to aid in people's revision, people used them simply to count the marks they got in an exam they literally just sat.

Physics and Maths tutor also does model answers for every paper (at least the ones that Arsey has not done) so I'd imagine he will do them as soon as the papers are either available to him or publicly.

If students still do not understand how to approach a question, it's not exactly hard to make a thread or post on the relevant thread for that exam...Obviously if they know about Arsey's solutions then they will know about TSR and presumably how to use it.

Arsey not making solutions isn't the end of the world. It's just an inconvenience.

Physics maths tutor doesnt make his own solutions for brand new papers, he just distributes the ones on TSR including Arsey ones.

I have a problem with physics maths tutor. He uses the website to advertise his tutoring and charges £130 for a day course for entry to medicine, which is not even useful. I don't think anything on his site is original and he's making money off of Arsey and Edexcel (also solomon) albeit indirectly. Edexcel have 0 problem with that but when it comes to Arsey posting solutions its the end of the world.

Someone should post a solution to this; I'm not sure why D1/M2 ones weren't posted, but C3 and C4 are extremely important for maths students, and I'm sure people would appreciate solutions much more than D1 and M2.

They can stop one of us.

But they cant stop all of us. :')

What can they do? sue us all for copyright infringement?

There is already another thread called " *UNOFFICIAL MARK SCHEME* Edexcel Maths C1 2017 ".
