This was similar to an SQA practice paper, which we were told were optional to do because they were ridiculously hard in comparison to the 2014 - 2016 papers. I managed some of them but most of it was too difficult, however this paper including so much from those papers and not the SQA 2014 - 2016 papers, which I think is unacceptable and should have been made clearer before the exam

The maths exam was soooo much harder compared to previous years and the questions were quite unclear. People who did extremely well in their prelims (which are usually meant to be harder) also found the paper very hard. The grade boundary should definitely be lowered or considered because many people worked very hard.
