I’d say Math is midrange difficulty, possibly harder than Virgilius and Dac (Wednesday), but generally easier than Punk (this Thursday) and Nimrod (this Friday).

]]>To me, none; but it might have helped someone who knew the word CIRCLET to get the answer by enabling them to deduce that ‘Headband’ was the definition. But then I thought that anyway.

oxfordloner – I think in terms of clue construction, this was probably about average for the Independent; in terms of word difficulty, it was probably a bit harder than average. Others may disagree. I always get Math mixed up with Mass (another Indie setter) so can never remember what I think is ‘average’ for either of them!
