Hi, I am doing igcse maths in may/june 2019. We just had our mock exams and i think the paper was the real gcse paper from last year. It was extremely difficult, i had done some quite a few past papers before this of previous years and they were nothing in comparison. Anyone know why the difficulty level for gcse maths has suddenly sky rocketed?
Firstly, are you doing Edexcel ?
Secondly, were these the 1H and 2H papers from June 2018 ? Because if so, then yes, I agree, those were legitimately very challenging papers. The 9 boundary was set at 75%, because so few people could cut the last third of the paper.
