Agree with your point on futility.
I foresee discussions here will continue along the lines of other exam discussions where students post their own versions of the questions from memory.
Quite unhelpful and a retrograde step.
I've enjoyed your posts through the years and taking part in the ensuing discussions.
Thanks, and good luck.

Edexcel have made it very clear that they do not wish for their papers, or solutions to their papers to be made available online.

The reason they give is that they would like schools to have the opportunity to use these papers for mocks etc. There is also a copyright issue.

My personal belief is that in the modern age that trying to prevent papers and solutions appearing online is futile. Now that they are no longer producing January papers, I would have thought that they could produce separate mock papers for schools to use. Nevertheless, I have to respect their wishes, so I will no longer upload solutions to this or any other website.

I would like to add that I have spent a lot of time and energy uploading solutions and responding to questions over the years, this was never done with self-aggrandisement in mind; I was just trying to help. I also found some of the discussions regarding the papers interesting and useful.

Furthermore, I was previously told by some people who run or ran this website that they had contacted Edexcel, who had no problem with past papers and solutions being uploaded to this website. Clearly that is not or no longer the case. So I would ask that others do not post papers or solutions to papers.

Finally, I would like to wish Edexcel good luck in preventing papers and solutions appearing, I just hope they have a very long whack-a-mole stick.

Good luck with your exams.

It has been a blast.

:wavey:
It is truly a great shame. I would like to thank you for your solutions over the years - where I could spot silly mistakes made in the exam or get a sense of relief.

I understand the predicament you are in and know that it is obviously beyond your control now. You'll still be remembered as a legend :moon:

Thank you:hat2:

Ludicrous.

Edexcel trying to censor the people of Great Britain. How dare they!

I don't understand the mock exam issue, at best the copyright thing but even then it seems like a poor argument from Pearson. Sound like children.

Ridiculous. As another user suggested, make another account and do them on blank paper without the questions? Please

Students would be able to get access to the papers one way or the other, regardless of them being officially locked. If there's a will to cheat in mock examinations, then they'll find a way to do it. I personally don't see how this is helping anyone.

Regardless - thank you for everything, Arsey.

This is very sad. Your solutions have helped many thousands of students and been of huge educational value.

As you say, preventing solutions to exam questions online is 'futile'. Speaking as an ex-teacher myself I would go as far as to say that the educational benefits of these far outweigh any inconvenience caused to teachers who want to set the paper as a mock exam.

In any case, students have numerous other ways in which they can share question and solutions which are not as open and accountable as TSR. There will only be more online sharing in the future - the genie can't be put back in the bottle.

As a matter of courtesy we would expect Pearson/Edexcel to contact us about this issue rather than expose individual users of TSR. Pearson/Edexcel has never asked us to remove any of these threads.

I hope that you rethink your decision and continue with your solutions. We want to encourage students to share their experiences of exams – we believe this is really helpful for their learning. It’s a real shame if this opportunity is denied them.

Whatever you decide to do, on behalf of thousands of students - thanks.

eurgh, stupid edexcel. If anyone wants to cheat in a mock that is entirely down to them it doesn't affect the school in any way nor does it affect the real results of the paper when the kids do the exam.
