    I Just attempted Solomon Paper G for C1, and i noticed that the wording and questions were really hard compared to the C1 Past paper e.g. 2015 C1 paper was nothing compared to the Solomon Paper. My question is do you think this year they will try to word questions like questions in the Solomon Paper?

    Probably not, Maths hasn't changed in it's specification yet (AQA). Solomon papers are only there to stretch the limits of C1 and make sure you thoroughly understand everything in C1.

    Go through all the old AQA C1 past papers and you'll be good to go.

    I hope they make all the papers hard!! It's more fun to do a challenging paper that gets you thinking than one which is really easy and dull!

    The Solomon Press are totally independent of Edexcel - they just wrote some papers on the same material. The Solomon papers are widely considered to be more difficult than the exam papers themselves, so if you can do the Solomon paper you should have no problem at all with the real thing

    They were written previous to the first past papers released by Edexcel in an attempt to mimic the papers by Edexcel but when the first few papers came out, it was found to be the case that the Solomon papers were harder - however, the more you move up in module, the smaller the difficulty differential becomes.
