    There has already been a lot of discussion about it. Some people thought it was hard, some people didn't.

    I don't agree that edexcel is much more difficult than any other examiner.
    Last time I looked at the numbers, More people take edexcel maths A level than the rest combined. This would not happen if it was much more difficult to pass. More people take it so more complain about it if they find a paper hard.
    The standard of A level exams is monitored very closely and all examiners observe the same standards.

    i totally disagree with you, as i have seen both the aqa and ceaa papers, and there is no comparision btween them, go have a look yourself?, the last question on the paper was quite lengthy, and previuos papers are derf harder, no doubt!!!!!!!!!!
