    Edexcel exams are taken across the world. This means that people in one country might have finished an exam that hasn't even started somewhere else.

    Because of this we've decided that to make the exams as fair as possible (and to discourage cheating) we'll close any threads on Edexcel exams until 12 hours after the end of the exam. Once 12 hours has passed the threads will be opened and you can carry on as normal.

    This means no discussion AT ALL - not even "I found it hard/easy" or "I dropped my pencil".

    The line between

    "I found it hard" and
    "I found question 2 hard" and
    "I found question 2 about <insert subject> hard"

    is very blurred. What starts as innocent discussion can turn into disclosures of exam content. We're therefore operating a zero tolerance policy on discussing exams.

    Morning exams may not be discussed until 12.00am (GMT) and afternoon exams until 4.30am (GMT)

    Anyone breaking this rule on TSR will recieve a warning and may be banned from the site.

    PLEASE NOTE: The rule applies to Private Messages as well as posts in threads. Anyone found to be discussing Edexcel exams via PM before the 12 hours are up will also receive a warning.
