    I'm in year 12, and I'll be sitting C3, C4 and M2 in a few months, and I was just wondering which was the hardest paper for C3, C4 and M2 respectively between 2009-2015 inclusive (the three papers don't have to have been in the same year by the way, I'm technically asking about all three individually). I want to save this paper for last. As a plus, has anybody got any critical ranking (most difficult to least difficult) for these three modules.

    Thanks in advance

    C3 and C4 in year 12? Wow..

    For c3 I would probably say it was june 2013. C4 were more or less the same and I can't comment on M2 as I don't take it

    My advice would be to look at the grade boundaries and pick the papers which have the lowest boundaries, that means they were the hardest

    I think I remember the examiners' report saying that it was an exceptionally hard paper.

    Dear God it was, I even remember trying the paper again (after having gone through it the first time) a few months after having done it, but no, it was still as hard...

    I'm screwed if a paper like that comes up this year, particularly as I'm relying on C3 to compensate for my C4 marks. That paper was just evil
