Hi,
I'm currently preparing for my Maths exams (GCSE) and will be doing as many past papers as possible. Currently, however, my school follows the edexcel syllabus, and I was wondering if it would be possible to do the AQA papers, as they may be too hard (or too easy) and may contain material I have not covered. Should I proceed in doing them anyway? Or should I stay clear of it and stick to the edexcel GCSE papers only?

I'm doing Edexcel too, and personally, I would stick to those papers. I think that looking at AQA papers could potentially knock your confidence if you see topics you have not covered in them, or it could cause you to revise topics not part of the Edexcel syllabus. If you have run out of the Edexcel papers (like I have), there are a few 'practice papers' which, according to my teacher, are generally considered harder than the actual previous papers.

I could post some links here if you'd like. Are you doing mathematics A or B?

Thanks for the advice and I would really appreciate it if you could post those links. (I'm doing mathematics A ).
