    What exam year would the 2016 exams be similar to? I know 2016 exams will have different kinds of questions to 2015 since it was only last year but is there a year that I could do all my past papers on so that the exams from that year will be similar to the 2016 ones? Such as 2013 or 2012?

    Whilst sometimes you can question spot, doing it on a year basis across a range of subjects incorpirates too many variables and its something I would never do. If it was that easy, then everyone would be telling each other the correct year now. They could just as easily put questions on you have never seen. Too risky imo.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
