Our students sat the AQA Unit 2 papers last Tuesday. The higher in particular was very difficult, infact it is as if the target audience for the paper was the A* students with lots of thinking questions,tricky and far removed from past papers. Some of my maths staff gave the paper to our returning y12 students who barely secured 50% of the paper; our y10 sat the paper!!. I've just been handed a copy of the Edexcel Unit 2 paper (slightly different content - some shape + space included), which has a big overlap of content with AQA unit 2. The edexcel paper is a standard run of the mill paper, nothing tricky at all. 'My blood is now boiling', I am very disappointed in this severe lack of consistency of standards. I am going to write to Ofqual about this one, are they actually monitoring standards across examining boards??
