    I read somewhere that the exam boards write the Summer exams all year round but I think they probably would have finished writing them now, or maybe they are going through testing/review. This kinda scared me, I've seem people go through GCSEs but now it's my turn :/ It's like my fate has been decided already lmao.

    What do you think?

    It isn't probable.

    The vast majority would have been finished and approved months ago. By now they would have all been written and approved though.

    I thought they always wrote them a few moths or weeks even before the official date of the exam to prevent cheating and seeing what would be on the exam if someone ever managed to get hold of it?

    They start planning them a year in advance. Chances are some of my years' (Y12) papers for Y13 have started the process.

    Somehow they keep them secret, I'm pretty sure they must store everything on multiple hard drives which are hidden away and locked up until printing.

    What is there to be scared of whenever the exam is written and approved by the exam board?
