    When should you start past papers for 90% UMS? For Maths, physics Further maths and economics AS Level?
    • Thread Starter


    For maths and further maths its best to start as soon as possible.
    For me when I am consistently hitting around near full marks I stop and then move onto the next module.
    And leave a few left to do the night before the exam.

    I plan to start past papers for C2 & FP1 (need to finish self teaching) in March and S1 & M2 in April as we haven't even started learning content yet in school.
    I'll probably go ahead and self teach M2 because S1 is boring, so I can get in as much practice as I can before April.
    It is really down to what sort of person you are. For me I need to feel secure that I'll get a high A by doing as many papers as I can until I can do them without even thinking if that makes sense.

    There is still plenty of time for past papers though If you are rather quick at completing them then you could start past papers in April and get quite a lot of them done. But for me I'll be busy with my other subjects by then, like physics, so I prefer to get most of it done in March.
