## One thought on “O level papers from 1957, 1962, and 1968”

1. I sat GCE O level in 1968, not sure if it was this board

My son is just sitting GCSE maths now, so we compared this to contemprary papers.

This is a bit harder (differentiation but also integration to find area under the graph etc) but crucially you only have to do three of the five questions in section b, so you can for example get through with an A without knowing any calculus, whereas with modern papers you have to answer EVERY question, so there’s no ecape, if you don’t udertand a particular topic you’re doomed

So I think the modern paper is possibly the tougher
