    SO i was doing alright in maths with all these past papers i scored an average of 70 or there about on each paper so i was alright

    But then today we got given some Sample assessment material i think from 2010?
    It was so incredibly hard!!!!
    I scored 40!!!!! D:

    Is this likely to be what the exam will be like or is sample assessment material known to be much harder?

    The actual year isn't on it. I'm just going off the bottom bit where it says "Edexcel limited 2010"

    2010 will be from the old specification which was harder. Do the 2012+ papers and base your grade on that
    The sample papers are always harder, the actual paper should... i mean SHOULD be easier lol

    Ignore the old spec mate, it's good to practice for specific questions though, but don't judge your grades on that it don't mean crap.
