    Sounds difficult! I can hardly do some of the A* stuff in the current ones, so I have no idea how I'd do if I was doing the new GCSE. By the way, I'm getting very high solid Bs at the moment and I want to push them up to As within the next few weeks... Do you have any advice on how I could do this?
    My advice would always be to just do past papers on rotation ie

    - make a list of all the past papers in, say, the last 5 years.
    Do a paper
    Mark it
    Record the score on your list

    - go through all the papers on your list

    - once you've done them all, redo the ones you scored lowest on

    You should notice your scores improve quite significantly every few papers but it's really important to mark carefully using the mark schemes, you can learn so much from the mark schemes.

    Take a look at the calculator paper of the new type of gcse and tell me how hard you think it is.

    Wow, the questions look difficult (at least for me anyway). Stratified Sampling on the first page, that's usually deep in the paper lol

    Thanks so much for the advice. I'm gonna try my best to do as many past papers as possible

    It doesn't work like that. Exam papers are written at least 2/3 years in advance. The 2016 paper would have been written years before the Hannah's Sweets Controversy. By the time of the complaints, the 2016 paper would have already been signed off so there was nothing that they could do about it.
