As everyone has almost finished ( my last exams are on thursday ) I was wondering what you all felt of the exams this year?
Personally, I think some have been very hard and other quite easy. I dont think that the exam boards have quite got the balance that they had on the old A-level style papers. Also, another factor is the mess the exam boards ended up in last year with the media saying it was too easy, that perhaps they made them harder who knows!

I agree, the exams have been very polarised this year. My maths exams were either easy or impossible, physics has been easy for far (but synoptic on thursday so fearing the worst), and chemistry this morning consisted of one "straightforward but challenging" paper, and a synoptic that was in a completely different format to previous papers.

I finished mine yesterday. Some were quite hard, most were ok though.

Edexcel maths: Took P1, P2, P2, S1 and S2 this summer. They all leaned on the side of easy except P3.

OCR B Physics: Got a good A in my AS hence didn't retake any AS papers. Paper 4 was easy to the point of being silly. Paper 5 was harder but still decent. Paper 6 this Thursday... we will see.

Edexcel economics: Retook all AS papers, and did the A2 papers. Papers 1-3, AS papers were all easy. Paper 4 I was pressed for time on but it wasn't a hard paper. Paper 5 and 6 were both fine I think.

Overall I've been pretty happy with all my papers. I can't stress how badly I did on P3 though...
