Do past papers work for you at university? Watch
But then, for things like English, it doesn't matter so much. At uni it's much more about being able to articulate yourself than regurgitating pointless facts.
One of my exams has no past papers available and its really annoying because its 100% exam, no coursework to ease the pressure. So I'm just looking over the tutorial work but whats annoying about that as well is that they dont even explain the answers to the work in the tutorials so I dont even understand most of the stuff because the lectures dont explain well either
