    I hear all the GCSE maths exams were very hard, or so everybody i know from other schools say. I did OCR, did anybody else? I found it really, really easy actually so i'm happy, I do have a tendancy to get high 90-100% in practise exams but even compared to normal maths exams todays non calculator one was simple. Thinking about it afterwards i know 2 marks out of 100 i probably lost but most of it seemed ok, though with me i'm always prone to stupid mistakes, eg getting my 2 times tables wrong or something!

    The marks were SO generous, you got 2 marks just for knowing;
    (5^6*5^3) /5^4 Well those aren't the exact powers they had but that's the jist of it. There was also 4 marks towards the end for some VERY basic algebra, science was also really easy, i see what they mean about exams these days, as long as you do OCR!

    edexcel the examboard

    edexcel have been really mean this year they have put in realy awkward questions. that are somehow impossible to all do in two hours. they make the exams hard and wen people cant do it have to move the boundaries down and waste all that money and time wen they could just make it all normal. if u ever want to do gcses OCR are the best and somehow the easiest all the edexcel papers have bin difficult for gcse and definitely a level made people even cry over it. Sort it out edexcel cos i sure do feel strongly about it and i know others do why cant they just sort it out
    :confused: :eek: :mad: :rolleyes: :cool: :cool:
