I’m attempting some of the questions in the kit and the ones before 2016/17 seem really difficult with tons of requirements. It’s extremely difficult to do it in the given time frame, especially with showing your workings in the workspace. I’m a bit worried that something like this is going to come up in the exam.
I believe that the format of the exam was different back then and so you would have had more time to answer the questions, so don’t worry if you are struggling for time.
When was the format changed? I believe its because of the change to CBE, but are there no paper based exams anymore? If that is the case then that could be the reason why the 2020 and 2021 past papers have much less requirements. I wonder when the CBE change occured.
I can’t remember the exact date but it was a few years ago, and it is more down to the fact that the format of the exam has changed, with there being sections A, B and C. So the older questions aren’t truly reflective of what you will get in the exam as the are not truly a current section C question.
