    In Maths and Sciences A level exams, I noticed when doing the past papers and sitting the exams and mock exams, that the 2015 papers were significantly harder than the 2014 papers, and the grade boundaries in 2015 were high despite this, meaning it was harder to get the A or A* grade !!

    Is it just me or did someone deliberately change it after 2014..?

    Exams have been getting more difficult every year and this is a fact. Mainly down to the fact that exam boards have rinsed the possible questions so by 2015 they had to make new questions which were more challenging.
