Just looking thorough some geography Edexcel B SAM and they look extremely harder than past exam content.

Is is true or what?

From my experience across exams (I've not done Edexcel Geography), sample papers do seem to have a tendency to be more difficult than the actual exam papers. However, this is not necessarily a rule and I wouldn't take it for granted.

Many exams. It's irrelevant, across the board, specimen papers do appear to tend to be more difficult.

I agree completely. This goes for Edexcel Geography (which I do) and Edexcel Science (which I also do). No idea why but it's only sample material so I wouldn't worry. The harder the material you do - the more prepared you'll be I suppose.
