    If you look at past papers, you'll see repetitive questions almost every year. They'll all be very similar.

    Not always. Trying to predict the difficulty of the paper of Aqa A level Maths is like trying to predict the lottery. You may never know what beast questions may come up so best to prepare for all topics inside out and above and beyond (and even that may not be enough).

    The examiners have some weird obsession with trapping students with the hardest questions ever (which you don't even see in maths modules at uni).

    But other than Maths, the approach seemed to be successful with me especially with MFLs. Just not Aqa Maths.

    You can never be sure or tell exactly. Look at the past papers and that's it. :rolleyes:
    You can predict some of the topics, but questions never. They're never the same, but some topics may come up more than others.

    No, please don't, you never know really, even though you might find some similarities but seriously just make sure you know/understand everything. Good Luck

    You can try and predict through past papers. Just see what hasn't came up in a while. I think it's just easier to learn everything instead of trying to predict as you can't really just rely on past papers. goodluck
