    These papers are an absolute joke in my opinion. Just did Paper 1 on the second set of specimen papers and was lost throughout... The question about moments was impossible and also the one about working out time taken for p to fall. Just look at the mark scheme for those 2 questions it would be virtually impossible for me to even get a mark on those questions.
    Bear in mind that these mark schemes do not go through the standard process of checking, so they'll be a lot stricter than the mark schemes of the real papers. And these papers are really difficult anyway - hopefully, the ones we sit are a lot nicer.

    Didn't really do the whole thing, just did the ones that looked troubling.

    Not looking forward to this exam, seems like its going to be pretty hard. Why does our year seem to get the specification change every time leaving us with barely any resources?!?!

    My whole class, including me, had our confidence crushed after those papers :'(
    I know a lot of people who found both sets of those specimen papers easy and when we did them in class I got 65 marks for paper 1 and 63 marks for paper 2. So I don't mind if they put out a paper of similar difficulty

    Well, I finished the whole spec by myself at around October and since then all I was doing was past papers, so I'm already used to all those difficult questions

    As long as there's people like me around I doubt very much that the grade boundaries will change.

    Feel very sorry for most people 😆

    If the vast majority of people find the paper difficult, the grade boundaries will most likely be lowered, regardless of outliers.
