    Hey
    I'm doing WJEC C3 and C4 this year. I've found that the past papers before 2009 are pretty easy compared to the later ones (WJEC seem to be making them harder each year), and wondered if anyone would recommend doing a couple of past papers from other boards similar to WJEC? or is this not worth it? Alternatively are there any WJEC exam-style questions in revision guides which 'stretch' you?
    My problem is I can easily get above 90% in the earlier papers, but in the later papers i can just as easily drop loads of marks just because they throw in an 'unfamiliar' question.
    Thanks!

    I'd say so - it's still practice of the relevant skills and being rigorous, answering the question they're asking, not the question you think they're asking etc.
