    1-14 were easy as cake for the most part.
    18 was easy and (Some) others I did educated guesses.

    I thought it was okay, looked at the paper later and I thought "what the hell was I thinking earlier"

    I was forced to do it, I was meant to be revising the Russian Civil war and also Stalin's rise to power but instead my maths teacher said "come on just dooooooooo itttttttttt" so I did it and answered about 6 questions; the others were impossible for me. I'd just finished revising the great terror so when I read the question about who was guilty, I just wanted to say that they were all guilty and give them a show trial and have them executed, mainly because I was quite annoyed at having to do the maths challenge.
    I would rate it 4/10, too many shapes, not enough Communism.

    Pretty easy actually, very similar to the past few years.
    A lot of simultaneous equations and knowledge of exterior/interior angles of shapes.
    The back page had 2 or 3 really easy questions which were simple algebra, like the one with 4^x.

    As always it was fun to complete and I'm pretty confident I did fairly well
