Tough GCSE Exams?

This comment on a recent forum had me wondering if any readers felt that this year the exams were either particularly tough or hard:

re OCR Short course GCSE

In the nine years that I have been teaching I have never seen a paper (foundation and higher) as hard.  Some of the questions were ambiguous and there was definitely a cross over between short and full course (e.g. system life cycle and validation checks etc).  Just hoping that the rest of the country found it difficult, that way the grade thresholds may be lower.
