1. Hello folks,

    The papers section is now fixed and most of the subjects have been updated with resources up to the October/November 2014 session.

    We lost a server recently and everything had to be rebuilt from scratch, thus the long delay.
    Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    I am still busy with some other projects but will be back on XPC in about 6-8 weeks.
    A lot needs to be done in here but in the meantime, I would really like to thank all the admins* and moderators for keeping this community intact.

    Regards,
    PlanetMaster

    *Yep! There is only one except me! :p

    EDIT: The error with file downloads has also been fixed.

    Discussing anything about paper leak is against 'XPF Rules'.
    CIE is using GMT for examinations so there is no time difference.

    Zone 3 doesn't means +3 GMT :!:
    Every country will be given a local time for an exam which will be on a same GMT time.

    Oh WOW. So CIE allocates the timetable so that everybody in different zone will be doing exams at the same time?
    Then why do they release First and Second variant question paper?

    Variants are used for countries with large time differences.
    For instance you have a paper at 9 in the morning.
    Then candidates in countries with like 12 hours difference will have to give that paper at 9pm.
    Think! ;)
