As a student I thought it was a decent paper. Section A was fair while Section B was in parts a challenge. A trigonometry question that is normally associated with Paper 2 came up. Also the financial question caused some difficulties amoung many.

Hi mark
Parts of the paper were difficult but you should have been able to do Q1,part of q 2, Q4 was a classic example of MESSY DATA (look out for more messy data on P2)Q5 (algebra) was ok except partc.Q5 I would think there will be at least 10 marks for the graph.Q7 very wordy but again I expect the marking scheme will be front loaded.
Q8 that proof was expected but part b was very confusing!Q9 was basically a question on a periodic function .

Agreed Q8 b badly phrased and 5c would also have caused problems .Q4 was nice but lots of messy data!

Today’s HL maths paper 1 was an absolute disgrace. Definitely one of the hardest papers in a few years. Extremely disappointed!
