Has this happened in previous years? This is a problem which is a lot more common because of people on the Internet having 2015 papers in their possession.

From this, we can understand the direness of cheating and something needs to be done about the increasing trends. On the other hand, mock exams aren't too important, therefore it's surprising to see students buying the papers.

What do you think about this?

Haha kids nowadays are too hopeless going to such an extent for a mock. Though I don't blame them much, due to increase pressure on them to constantly do well.

- They're achieving nothing since mocks aren't that important.
- They're cheating themselves and are only going to do worse in the actual exams.

Anyone who buys these is an idiot in my book.

I think that they're idiots. Why would you buy a mock when there is no benefit apart from knowing where you are in and where to improve?

Going to such an extent just for mock exams :sigh:
That money could've been spent in much better ways.

To be completely honest I cheated on a fair few of my mocks back when I had them, but to go as far as to buy the papers is pretty sad.

Should be taken off of ebay - Isn't it illegal to sell Edexcel's papers anyway?

How do people even obtain copies of the past papers in the first papers? They're not available online?

It seems to me that they're former examiners, or something of the sort.

This guy has made £200 on the papers, which is worth mentioning.

Ridiculous. Someone needs to report him and get his account removed.

It's not entirely his fault though; the situation wouldn't be what it is without the fools buying the papers in the first place.
