    The reason it's so hard is because all the people who've done C3 and C4 are resitting at the same time as us and not at a different time. This means that they need to make it harder to accommodate for that. If you look at the grade boundaries last year they went up and the 2015 paper was way harder than the 2014 paper. I'm not trying to make anyone feel bad but my cynicism is telling me that the boundaries might actually go up. How in the hell am I gonna get onto a computer science course with this?
    can confirm - i did c3 and c4 last year and screwed them up last year and so i am resitting s1-4, fp1 and c4 to get A*A* maths and further. So there are a fair few people resitting these exams solely to get ums

    Normally if c1 is hard, C2 will be moderately hard and s1 is easier

    You can just retake C1 next year. when you are in the position of those people who pushed the grade boundaries up this year, that is if your sixth form allows for retakes. (?)

    wasnt the age 28 as the gifts started on his 10th birthday and as n=18 so 10+18=28 years
    Yeah but when n=18, that's 17 years, so it was 27

    I dont think its possible that anyone would have it, Teachers are not allowed to release it and students have nothing to copy it with.

    I mean, I didn't think it was bad, but for a ****ing C1 paper, if it solomon paper, it would be the one everyone knows to avoid.
