Well your teacher was OBLIGED to provide you with a fresh pack of past papers ordered from Edexcel. The book contains 10 past papers and they are from the new spec.

What I hate so much is that they should have been published on the site for edexcel as well. I have done only a few modular papers in school for example on as a mock. However I think just before the exam my teacher will make us do extra practice papers in class.

There are NO past papers for Unit 3. This is a new specification and papers have never been set for Unit 3.
Edexcel have produced a Specimen Paper, A Mock Paper and 3 Practice papers for Foundation and Higher tier.

Your teacher may have provided you with practice papers produced by independent publishers to match the Edexcel specification (e.g. CGP or Churchill Maths). These would have to be paid for and a school would not be obliged to provide them.

Are any of these available on-line - if so can someone post a link? I was only given the specimen paper. I need higher papers to practise on.

I need 158... so I'm expecting an A overall haha
12. Re: GCSE Edexcel Maths Unit 3 19/06/2012 Exam Discussion
I managed to get myself onto an A* overall- literally by just one mark, by doing a retake. So I need an A* in this exam. Unfortunately I have no idea how to revise maths and can't remember anything.
13. Re: GCSE Edexcel Maths Unit 3 19/06/2012 Exam Discussion
Actually, there are more papers for Unit 3 than you think. There are some papers in the Specification Booklet on the Edexcel Website, which many of you haven't seen. Edexcel have also released an addition of a mock paper and 3 extra practise papers, making a total of 6 papers overall. Our school has also purchased Churchill Papers which consists of 10 papers for Unit 3 which are really good if you want to get good marks in the harder questions.
