    I've just had a look at the Edexcel Maths paper that some of you guys did. I think the probability question you guys got is the hardest I've seen at GCSE

    Oooh, how/where?

    I really want to see it - lots of people are talking about it
    Seems like a lot of people were thrown by the whole "apply your knowledge to this unfamiliar situation" approach.

    It was the way the questions were worded too. So many unnecessary words.

    This all makes me very glad I chose mechanics and not statistics, no more probability for meeeeee :ahee:

    I just hope that Edexcel doesn't troll me with a difficult biology paper today...

    Both of my A-Level Biology papers (I'm on Edexcel) were lovely, so don't panic!
    It just seems to be that one GCSE maths paper.

    Not even that hard of a question tbh. Don't know why it's being reported as if it's some alien question that no one can do

    It's interesting how the paper gets so much coverage, isn't it?
    I think some people are overreacting - especially those saying it was A-Level difficulty :giggle:


    Definitely a different style of paper, which is what has thrown people.
    More applied. Still, certainly answerable!

    Well I did OCR paper 4 today, and lots of people put didferent answers for the last question but got it wrong and I got it right as they used a wrong formula... So it's not always the end!

    And in science the same happened... So you could be right!

    Is anyone doing Sociology next year? I was planning to but I know it's deemed as a soft subject, plus I might be the only person in the class.

    I was thinking of switching to R.S but I haven't been enjoying it as much as I used to so I'm still not sure
