    Hi, everyone. I heard of that some teachers said that, the OCR exams in every June, which we are preparing now, are easier than the same module exam paper in every January. Is that ture???

    Not necessarily. I do OCR Philosophy, and usually their papers are easier in june, but they were easier in the janurary this year. You can never tell, methinks.

    OCR physics tends to be that way, from what I've seen.

    I know for a fact that OCR Biology Central Concepts that I took in January was one hell of a hard exam. The teachers were really apologetic about it! (it's not like it was their fault!) In my whole class, only 4 of us aren't retaking! T'was one hard exam!

    I do OCR a2 Geology, and the Jan Units are always WAY harder then the June ones!!!

    Not to say the June ones are easy- they're deadly too.

    Ive noticed this with OCR GCSE's too, the maths papers we got recently for 04 January seemed harder than the ones for Summer 03 and the same for 02/03 exams. My guess would be they prefer the exams to be harder since the majority taking them are people resitting who should make good use of the extra time they have to revise and not simply take them because they might be easier than the summer exams.

    yes they tend to be slightly harder in january i've noticed but then again the marks should be rounded up higher if thats the case.
