I hate all this rubbish how can anyone know how hard a paper wil be.

An example of this comes from English many people said this years credit reading was the hardest ever and that meant the higher reading would be turns out it was very fair.

They are not going to make it impossible its not like there will be 10 A questions or anything they have to keep a standard.

Lets be honest no one knows what's in the paper! So no one knows how easy/hard it will be.

Certainly it won't stray too much away from the difficulty of the recent past papers. The hardest past paper is the 2000 which drew a great amount of outrage - so it's probably the "hardest" paper if you want to look at it that way!

If you really wanna know what a hard paper is, we were doing stuff from 1986/87. HOMAGAWD that is hardcore heavy duty shit I tell you. It sort of seems to maintain a nice balance around 95-97 ish, and then 2000 onwards is relatively just a joke man, its totally pish. I really think Im gonna ditch the leckie n leckie ones and give the real old ones a go if this is whats being predicted... sad.gif

I do AH Maths, and we are doing CSYS studies papers from 1970's to the recent one's. Even the questions testing the basic content back then are hard! smile.gif

I certainly wouldn't go to far back in the old past papers - generally speaking the stuff that comes up is more like the recent ones.

They would not get away with making the paper so much harder like the old ones considering they were like four hours long combined. People are reay taking it too far.

They could as easily just make the paper easier.

the older papers are from a different era where that level was the norm so people wouldnt have found them as difficult

i agree with gary though give this predictin rubbish a rest and spend all yoru time doing as many different questions as you can because they can only ask you what you have been taught.

Last year there was one quetion i just couldnt get my head around but i still ended up with a band 1

If i am not here i am somewhere else

Nope, you're center/school will have that. The SQA also send your school your actual exam marks for some subjects, such as Higher English.

so basically what u guys are saying is that the 2000 Higher Maths paper is considered the hardest from the past years (2000-2004)

I actually found it not that hard doing the 2000 pastpaper questions, thats a good sign right?

(please canna get an answer)

I think Dave is talking about the idea that you don't get two of the same subject for diff levels...actually, now looking at it I am not sure unsure.gif
