    Does anyone have access to the specimen papers?
    Also, does anyone have, or know of any papers of similar or harder difficulty to Pure Paper 1. I've already done all papers released by Edexcel and many sets of Solomon Papers.

    3D vectors, modulus functions, some kind of proof, parametric integration (maybe), differentiation from 1st principles, trapezium rule....

    Teachers have been asked not to share these - we could lose access to the Edexcel Emporium which no-one would risk.

    yeah, for some reason I feel like it will be. Although Paper 1 was difficult enough!

    I feel like it too. I’m hanging on the edge to see if I could get A* or not how was it for you?

    Same :/ If the grade boundaries are low, I might still be in the running, but if not... I'll aim for an A. I could have gotten 85% on that paper, but I'm not certain about it.
