    HOW can less than 10% of people think french was the hardest, i bet all of those were french aqa, french ocr is appaerently soooo easy
    The difficulty for each exam board should be the same but it doesn't always work out like that! French OCR reading was the only french exam that I found challenging- probably because it was over a month since the listening exam

    Yeah its stupid If everyone finds them difficult and the exam boards are so low, surely they'd have to rethink the syllabus because many people struggle with it :cool:

    OCR RS morals and beliefs paper. I wasn't awake at the time and none of the topics were on topics that I am strong or even confident about, particularly the compulsory question. Oh well, I suppose that's what I get for sitting at the back of RS class in a Catholic school doing nothing for 2 years. I think I better learn some stuff for the Christianity exam tomorrow.

    Exactly, hopefully boundaries will be low then, most people didnt find it too easy either.

    Maths AQA Non Calc. I did AQA French and it was mostly very easy. The writing was a bit strange though and my tenses were never fabulous so...

    OCR Double Award Biology. Nobody else thought it was hard...but I hated those questions where I had to guess the answers, since they weren't covered in anything which we had learnt during the course.

    OCR french was the hardest for me. I'll be lucky to get half marks. AQA graphics was also hard. "AQAPOP" - how original

    I'd have to say I found English Language paper 1 the hardest; simply because I focused on using a wide vocabulary rather than exercising good written reasoning.

    OCR Physics - but that was my own fault for not revising. Apart from that, I'd have to say my first History paper. The questions were really weirdly phrased!

    AQA English Lang & Lit (Spec A) Module 4 esp. when you get the wrong page references in the exam, wait for 10 mins whilst they supposedly ring the exam board, then forget to notify you of anything so you have to start the other (impossible) question with ten mins off your time. Then the Eng department says it's not worth the bother to notify the exam board WOO! What a horrible day!

    *Pff* Some teachers need reality checks I think. They don't seem to have grasped the concept that modern day GCSEs are totally different from exams "back in the day" when they wrote on slates with chalk.
