    ...will/would set an easier English exam paper...

    I hope the teacher will/would set an easier English exam paper this term.

    Can either verb be used?

    Thanks.

    NOT A TEACHER
    I'm pretty sure that only 'will' is possible in your sentence.

    No.

    I hope he will ...
    I wish he would ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
