    Is A level maths supposed to be a lot harder in 2017 than it is now since the specification is changing? I know the AS will no longer count towards your final grade. What are your thoughts on this or will it be similar with the exams at the end of year 13 as opposed to year 12+13?

    im doing the wjec and maths is still the same. i guess im the last year that'll be doing the old spec though. exams are evidently getting harder as time goes by, my class were doing past paper questions and we found out 2005 and 2015 had massive differences in difficulty on same subjects. so whether it's old spec or new one, exams are more difficult

    So were 2005 exams much easier?
