    It was the British Council who posted the paper in a pack of old past papers to some school in Egypt. Nothing to do with Edexcel.

    Just to say, when the Bucks County Council made a mess up with one year's 11+ paper, the 'new paper' was actually the one they'd used the year before. Unfortunately we did Jan 2012 as a mock and I failed, so I hope that doesn't happen xD

    I'm not quite sure we can compare Edexcel worldwide C4 A-level exams with the Bucks County 11+

    In my life they're equally important. The one got me into the grammar school and the other will get me into uni
    (But it would be a totally Edexcel thing to do)

    It could be S3, but much much more likely to be C4 as it was a packet mass-mailed to schools. Hardly anyone does S3 in comparison with C4.

    Edexcel were being criticsed for having predictable papers each year. I assume they always have a backup for each sitting, however, if they decide to use the January 2013 paper it'll be difficult, whereas, if they use an older paper as a back up it'll be the same preditcable questions that have come up year on year.

    Just a guess.

    I actually know a bit about this from talking to a chief examiner. Apparently they make the papers a couple of years in advance, and they always make back ups in case of a security breach. The back ups are never released however under ordinary circumstances.

    What I know for certain is they will not use the would be Jan 13 paper.

    It is C4 that's being replaced.

    Schools were emailed today and new papers will be winging their way everywhere as we speak!

    Where does it say this? Surely that would be unfair having people sit different papers, how would they standardise?
