    I’m hearing a lot of chatter on Twitter about this paper. Haven’t actually seen it myself yet though! What are everyone’s thoughts on the paper?

    I only had a chance to speak to our Foundation students - most of them seem to think it was OK - I haven't seen the paper yet.

    Erm, aren't we supposed to keep quiet about any content... at least until the end of the exams season and national contingency day.

    Really ?

    I saw all the Biology papers this morning - I thought they were pretty easy actually (even the Triple paper).

    This probably means Chemistry tomorrow is going to be brutally difficult

    No, the content is now public. It is no longer embargoed, but it'll be behind various passwords so that next year's candidates don't see it before they get the papers in their Mock exams.
    There is a specific route for comments on the exams - the Standing Joint Committee for each Awarding Body. https://filestore.aqa.org.uk/admin/exams-guidance/AQA-STANDING-JOINT-COMMITTEE.PDF
    If you have concerns, it's likely your comments will have more weight if they (a) go through the SJC and (b) are echoed by other Centres contacting the SJC.

    It was easy - almost as if it were a different syllabus to last year.
