    I know I'm not the only one because on all these threads people are saying - 'so much harder than any of the past papers.'

    Is it exam stress or are they making the papers harder?

    Maybe when I mark practice I'm just too nice to myself - "I would have put that in the test"

    Combination of both, more of the latter usually. Sorry to hear about your difficult exam though. Hope you did well

    My maths teacher said that apparently people say that every year people say that the core 1 was the hardest ever. It's probably about half exam stress and half the exams getting slightly harder but yeah still really not by that much tbh.
