I wouldn't say it was hard as hell but I wouldn't say it wasn't easy, it was reasonable and I thought it would be more terrible than what it was.

Harder than past years but still not the full wrath of the BOS - I reckon an 8

There were one or two curve balls here and there but I didn't find anything particularly hard. 3.

I thought it was really really easy compared to past years. The comprehension texts were chock-full of techniques, especially texts 3 and 4. The creative question was relatively challenging (especially 'central element') but they gave you 5 pictures, so you had a pretty wide range of things you could do. The essay question had a lot of components but they were all fairly straightforward. As long as you talked about interactions with the world and passage of time, I think you'll be mostly fine.

It wasn't too hard, last years was actually harder in my opinion.

Probs 10, just because they aren't as straight forward as past papers.....

I voted 8 because of time constraints. If we were given a reasonable amount of time, for example, 3 hours then I would probably have rated it a 5.

I thought it was straight forward, if you knew the texts it was piss easy. The comprehension was harder, but managable.

Definitely harder compared to previous years, still not the worst I've seen though

Gave it a 7, as others students said the time constraints really gave it that difficulty factor

4 at the most.

If you had prepared well for the essay than it was piece of cake.

We'll see by the results. It definitely was difficult to mould for SOME electives and supposedly easy for others. It really depends.

I agree. 7 it is. I simply ran out of time for my short answers.. however I don't think I incorporated the image much or the notion of time into my creative.
My preprepared essay and creative wasn't based around time but for the essay it wasn't that hard to link.
