They should have given ARR instead of that stupid swimming pool question you'd think it was a maths exam they should have stuck to the spec

honestly, 1. barely any finance came up and was pretty easy! dont want to jinx myself but it was actually manageable. I had 30 mins to complete the last 12 marker even when I had to use spare paper when completing the other 2 9 markers. overall time was pretty calm and efficient. im indefinelty sure grade boundaries are gonna be rocketing high unless they decide to lower it due to this being the first exam of the new spec!
