AS exams are in a month, 27 days to be specific, and I've finished most of the content, do I start doing past papers or is it too late?

If you think you have learnt most of the content I would say now is the perfect time to start past papers. Practising exam conditions is invaluable experience and will give you confidence. I wouldn't say you're too late as there is only a limited number of past papers to choose from and you don't want to run out of resources early, and there is enough time to revisit topics if the papers reveal holes in your knowledge. I hope this helps, good luck!

Honestly it's never too late, and even if it was you still have a lot of time! As long as you're sure that you've covered the content that could come up it's definitely worth doing as many as you can and marking as you go, it can help you figure out which parts of the course you may be weaker in so that you can go over them before exams start. So it's definitely worth doing them and you have more than enough time to do them, good luck with your exams!

i started 3 weeks ago and i've done nearly 2 subjects (papers) so i really would make a start now. its better to do papers/questions as you go along because if you learn content you will forget it by the time you start with papers anyway

theres enough time but use it wisely!

also would recommend doing questions per topic (doesnt take long) and its more effective because you've done the learning content bit and questions!!

Guys for GCSEs I started past papers in the first week before the exams. I ended up with Bs tho so. If you want As start 2 weeks before in advance.
