    o please

    will it really affect you that much

    thss is really pointless
    Honestly, your revision technique is a major factor as to how well you do.

    It may be possible that simulating exam conditions will have a large impact on your overall grade, it may not.

    I personally always prefer doing any exams (though not A-Levels, in my case) from a printed copy rather than from a computer screen. For starters, it gives the closest simulation of actual exam conditions, which it's important that you become used to. It's also often more convenient to have the question as close as possible to where you're writing, and if need be you can make notes on the paper to help guide your thinking. If I'm using my own printing facilities then I'd tend to review solutions/mark schemes from a screen, as you can do this in a more leisurely style without losing the benefit of exam practice - plus, it saves on printing costs! :p:

    I just use them from the laptop, I don't see a point in printing out loads of pages. I dislike having so many pages anyway, even the notes I make in school on paper/books are binned straight away.

    Print them because it feels more like the real thing then and there's less distractions

    Well, NO.printing past papers is not a waste of time and money rather it is an investment.Several schools only rely on past papers for making examination question papers.And even you can sell it after you pass o level ,igcse etc.
