Not surprising to me, the first one is a funnel and once people pass that they put in more effort for the other ones I would assume.

Yes, there is a known effect in the UK A levels (exams at 18) where the harder Further Math A level exam has a higher pass rate because only the kids with a proven aptitude take it.

January 2018 passrate 43%
I'm seeing a pattern here: the last 5 L1 exams have had the same pass rate (43%).
In the old days, it was all over the place

June 2018 passrate
L1 still 43%
L2 45%
L3 will  be released later (L1 and L2 are all multiple choice these days but L3 still requires writing so takes longer to grade)

The exam was a few weeks later this year to accommodate Ramadan which (the delay) reportedly wrecked the vacation plans of non-islamic candidates, hence the results are also later
