Past papers are not the only way and should not be the only way for you to revise.
It sounds like you're putting all your faith in them, don't!

Nah, I'm not trolling. I just come from quite a competitive year, so I feel inclined to do more.

Ten papers a day? Mean time completing plus marking paper: 1 hour 30 minutes~
You spend 15 hours every day on papers?

I do mainly science (old spec) papers whcih are like 45 marks, so i do it for for 45 mins or stop when i've finshed and then french which is about 45 mins and english lit which is about 45 mins. But yeah, obviously i don't do 10 past papers every day but like i do 10 on the weekends per day

It's mainly because i've learnt everything now, so i cba to do anymore revision

I myself find past papers to be incredibly useful, but yeah its not the only way to revise. As for how many it depends on what subjects they are and how strenuous the papers are for you! I find the GCSE AQA English language paper really tiring, despite it being one of my favourite subjects... writing for 2 hours and 15 minutes... -.-

Well best thing to do is do a paper... mark it,
Note down the parts you're wrong and go over the topics the same day then start on another paper

Yeh I agree my first one is on the 15th may and its re as well ,and its bet not to get too complacent by just doing last papers as it means that you won't be covering all the topics that you need to know for the exam...and it's likely that the topics int he past papers won't feature in your actual exam,so if I was you I would just revise the hard way by learning everything that could possibly come up that way you know your guaranteed not to fail ! Hope you get amazing results in your exams !!

It means that you won't be going over everything you need to know for the exams as the topics that don't feature in the last papers are more than likely to come up in the exams ! Just revise properly by using a revision guide or something as this way you won't miss anything out that you need to know.i know from experience that the thing that your bad at is more than likely the thing to come up in exams so just learn everything

I can only do 2 a day maximum. Any more the monotonous font, excessively long winded questions and using good exam technique just melts my brain.

My first exam's on the 15th May and I've been doing 3 a day. Feel like I'm slacking a lot seeing what y'all say, though.

I'm on about 2 or 3 a day, marking every few days or so. That's only for maths at the moment - philosophy I haven't done any past papers yet and I'm waiting until study leave to start properly on physics as they're at the end of my exam leave.
