My psychology exam (edexcel unit 3) was much harder than past papers I've seen but law (unit 3 AQA) was exactly as I expected.

Yup. Just a bit different, would you say?

Perhaps because they're running out of ideas on topics that they can test students.

I mean with my BUSS3 exam they just copied two questions from the 10 and 11 papers.

I had my final exam yesterday, so here's my paper-by-paper opinion:
- AQA biology BIOL4, similar difficulty to previous papers (though annoyingly ambiguous as always).
- MEI maths FP2, slightly harder than previous papers overall (some nice questions though).
- OCR chemistry F324, slightly easier than past papers.
- OCR physics G484, much harder than past papers.
- MEI maths C4, similar difficulty to previous papers.

I may revise this come March

Psychology is so difficult compared to it's grading on that list so unfair


Edit: Yeah guys, try learning a total of 20 25 mark essays and 5 15 mark essays just for one exam and tell me it's easy.
You don't have to learn the essays, as long as you have a good understanding of all the concepts then you should be able to answer any question in the exam.

Biology F211 JAN 2013 OCR was the hardest the paper I've ever seen.
Any chance you could link me to the papers or photos of the paper?

Edit: I'd say the paper was fair, maybe slighty harder than the earlier ones but I studied both AS and A2 so maybe thats why It seems easier.

F324 was definitely hard in comparison to the other past papers, I think there was only one that was harder, I think it was jan 2012 but not 100% sure.

Yeah Jan 12 was an absolute monster June 12 wasn't much easier either.

Anyone who does AQA A Level Maths who doesn't think they are harder is incredibly ignorant...

This probably varies between modules. Edexcel S2 was a bit of a curveball but from what I heard from the lower year S1 was a nice paper this year.

S2 apart from that mosquito was an ok paper.
