    If I completed all the work in a modular edexcel book for a maths module, lets say-Uhhh, M1- then would I, if I also had examsolutions, mymaths, maths 247 and ukmathsteachers be capable of reaching an A grade no matter what they threw at me in the exam?

    If you're asking if you could get a good grade self teaching yourself maths modules with a lot of past paper practice. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be the first to do so

    Just need to manage your time effectively and make good progress and if you get stuck. Ask for help on here

    You would be pretty much well prepared. However, you'd need to also do past papers, because the textbook has a similar style in some questions, and totally different for others. You could then use examsolutions to see where you went wrong.
    Past papers will get you used to the sort of questions that come up, and should be used for practise.

    Yes. Seek out past papers and other even harder questions.

    This is the completely wrong approach. If you can not do any of those questions you need to know now. There is no point in advising you any more because you obviously know it all.

    Why?
    I thought that you said learning "concepts" was most important and that textbooks (and the questions therein) weren't really much use. In fact in your classes you said pupils receive 100% of everything they need to know and do. But now you are advocating doing some questions ? Really the truth is you don't want anyone saying anything in "your" thread lest your unique and special position as a "teacher" is undermined in some way. Despite being a very experienced and apparently quite talented teacher you do not yet appear to have even begun to contemplate the fundamental difference between teaching and learning because you are only interested in the former.

    In addition to the Edexcel past papers for A level Maths and FP-Maths I have heard that there are also:
    Solomon papers
    Delphis papers
    Endorsed practice papers
    Graded papers

    Please may somebody tell me how they are different from the normal ones and from each other? Would it be possible perhaps if somebody could share a link to each of these? Please please please reply.

    Try international papers, those are rather difficult.

    Imo, this year's edexcel M1 exam was the most difficult I've done, including the international papers.

    Edexcel sell international papers on different levels, your college may have some.
