DS told me a lot of students say the paper is tough.
According to my DS, this year's O levels questions are a shocker. Questions are phrased differently from the past years n he is expecting more surprises from the rest of the other papers.
It seems O levels are getting more n more difficult now. You can't rely on TYS anymore.
I took the papers too (am sec 4 this year) and yes imo the papers are different from other years in the sense that although concepts tested are considered in-syllabus, they have phrased it in surprising or confusing ways that make students panic or puzzled (leading to careless mistakes or lack of time). I believe this means the bell curve will fall in favour of more academically inclined students this year as most students would have fallen short of what is expected to get an A1/A2.. really tests application and thorough understanding of content rather than blatant memory work. Personally enjoy the challenging papers though!
Today's chemistry paper is a breeze as compared to the killer papers in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Data based qns were pretty straightforward and direct. Students who understand organic chem well will definitely do well as organic chem accounted for ard 25-30 marks of the entire paper.
