You have access to more papers and last years of syllabus. Also there is no issue with whether a paper is hard or not because EVERYONE finds it hard. You would rather it hard than really easy, if it was really easy then you could fall grades due to silly mistakes but very hard papers mean you tend to fall grades because you do not understand the topic properly. Anyway, the same proportion of people who get A*'s and A's etc last year and the years before will remain the same this year... so many people fretting over nothing.

Did you know that there's a thread saying this (without the 2015) pretty much every year?

This year they have made exams much harder, without a doubt, no point even arguing against it.

And you based this on an in depth and impartial analysis of all the subjects Edexcel offers? Or on a couple of exams you haven't liked?

Tbh only exam I've found harder than the other past papers was the C2 exam. That was a general consensus that most people even on here found it really hard. Apart from that, they've not really been so much harder I don't think.

Did you find the Edexcel C2 exam hard?
I saw so many people on this site saying they scored 69-73/75 nearly 90-100% ums.

I thought I was the only odd one out

Yeah it was edexcel, haha. Don't worry most people found it very hard. There was a poll of 700+ people, and the 35% voted very hard, 27% voted hard, 22% quite hard. So don't worry man, was a tough exam haha

Shoudn't fret over what people on tsr get. A large number of them are pretty damn smart cookies, but they do not make up the majority of the people taking the exam.

Have to say Edexcel is the best exam board ive ever used... Its a myth that different exam boards are 'easier' but the content may vary slightly, the ratio of papers and coursework may be better with other boards and the level of resources public varies so there are differences in exam boards despite what tutors say With regards to Edexcel, their parent company is Pearson who publish their own materials, its also very popular especially for Maths and Sciences therefore public material is out there, their examiner reports are good and the content is always precise and up-to-date.
