    So when...?
    Whenever you finish or nearly finish a module.

    You should have done at least one C1 paper by now

    If you've got mocks in January, maybe start with some C1 papers now (but not all) and then really go for it in December.

    In general.. doesn't hurt to do now and then go hard during April.

    I'd say do a couple after you've finished a module, but you don't want to run out of past papers before April...

    Even so, you should be over half way through I'll take a wild guess and you're on coordinate geometry at the moment.

    It's impossible to run out of maths papers! There are past papers from like 5 exam boards, specimen papers from 5 exam boards and all of the solomon papers.

    There's probably enough for 2 a week from now until the exam for each module...

    Personally, I wouldn't do other exam boards papers unless I'm desperate for more questions (that's just my opinion though)
    But I get what you mean about there being tons maths papers...

    I think it's great doing different exam boards because it can prepare you for any type of question.
