Did doing past papers help with your exams this year? For Chemistry and Physics OCR it didn't really for me personally but wanted to hear other opinions.

geograpghy, geology and religion. (also crapy welshbacc)

Due to me being autistic and dyslexic the past papers were great for me as i learned how to formulate answers.
The examiners reports showed me where othe pple went wrong in thier answers before so i didnt make those mistakes. It was advice i was given on this site, to look at exam reports, it did help me.

But they repeated loads of questions for AS chemistry?

Past papers if you do them all, help u know how to answer the question

Format changing does not matter that much

Sorry for the typo but not sure with Chemistry. A lot of people complained also about it, the same with Physics Mechanics OCR G481.
