Hiya, I was wondering if the 2nd year to do the new GCSE will be easier as we didn’t get the full 9-1 course. And also we do new GCSEs such as history and science etc.

I've heard the exams would be a lot harder than past years Probably the hardest exams ever.

Yeah I know they’re the hardest but cause we’re the first year I was wondering if they would be easier them like 2 or 3 years down the line

the actual exam will be harder. But as we are underprepared than the future years the boundries will be low.

You're still going to cover the entire course as stated in the specification for each subject without fail because that's what the exam boards and Ofqual expects. In terms of the difficulty, I would treat that with caution because although you are the second cohort to sit the new examinations, it may not necessarily be easier, it might well be harder. However, if you're struggling there are resources around TSR and I'm more than happy to help if you tag me.

Yah im doing them next year. I guess we did miss out a bit because it was only in year 9 that our lessons started changing to adapt for the next 2 years. I do feel we missed out especially in science a bit. i remember learning about drugs as an actual topic as it was in the old biology spec. however that knowledge and lesson time was wasted because we dont need to know about drugs. (a bit about drug trials but not about recreational drugs).
but at least we had an extra year. we started the 9-1 RS course in year 9 which was great becasue the current Yr11s have only just finished it. also they had to self teach some stuff becasue there was so much content to cover!

By using the '@' sign. E.g @ Charlieefinch but without space.
