    I'm taking my exams in May this year too and my school have discussed what we think is going to come up especially for the maths (I'm also doing edexcel as well).
    We thought that because we are the first year doing the 9-1 exams, the exam board simply cannot not afford for us to fail. The reason being, I don't know but it's just what they say. Maybe, if its a poor average then the exam board's reputation will fall decreasing the amount of school who study their course. So the maths exams won't be easy of course but they definitely not be as hard as the mock exams edexcel made because they were ridiculously hard.
    Just my thoughts hope it helps.

    My teacher thinks the maths exam will be easier than the specimen papers as well, they can't make the whole country fail.
