    It's very interesting to look at these papers.
    It's a while since I did GCSE maths, but from what I remember it looks like the O level wasn't as different as people like to make out.

    Numbers perhaps fixed to be whole perhaps?

    Then you'd know you went wrong :P

    But otherwise, it'd be more tedious!

    The O Level Maths is very much like a modern FSMQ Add Maths paper, with some GCSE stuff.

    Good plan. You should only take offence if you are called a reciprocal grandma.

    The flattered feeling has gone

    I do not even recognise that adding machine
    I have never seen one before

    If you look at the O Level papers from my year you will see we were allowed calculators
