This year I sat the AQA Linear Maths GCSE papers after completing a 1-year course in Adult Ed, primarily to get updated on some current topics that I didn't do at school (where I passed O-Level one year early) - topics such as Vectors, Probability and Data Handling (Cumulative Frequency charts, Histograms etc). Despite feeling that I coped more than adequately with the papers for the purpose of achieving a top grade, I found myself needing every single minute of the I and a half hours (Paper 1: Non-calculator), and 2 hours, (with Calculator). Each time I had to abandon the last question I was attempting when 'Time Up' was called. I was very surprised that the time allocation was deemed sufficient for candidates to answer all questions, with time to check their work. Can I ask the opinion of others, on this matter, who are familiar with this GCSE ? Thanks in advance !
