    ALL OF THEM
    Edexcel?
    Every single year (or probably 2008 onwards), January, June, the R papers, last year's papers the night befor, the Solomon Papers, the Silver and Gold Papers, just everything.

    If you're looking for a minimum number it would probably have to be... all of them.

    As above, at the very least all of the past papers. Then solomon papers if you want/need the challenge.

    Just do as many as makes you feel comfortable going into the exam, making multiple TSR threads asking the same thing isn't going to change the fact that revision is ultimately an individual thing and that what works for someone else won't necessarily work for you - there is no secret recipe that if you follow you will get 100, and tbh with trying to get 100 it is much more about being able to flawlessly execute an exam making 0 mistakes than having done 20 rather than 10 papers.

    If I remember correctly, gold questions are just made up of past paper questions so not sure how good a use of time if you plan to do every past paper.

    Doing every summer paper is a start, then you can decide whether you need to do January as well or if you're really confidet enough to skip them and go to Solomon.

    Yh ok
    I think i will stick to the June papers and Solomon papers then (complete Jan and gold if necessary), may just do it for M1 as it pretty difficult in comparison to the rest.

    The guys above aren't exaggerating.

    EVERY SINGLE PAPER.

    Then do them again.

    But don't forget the Edexcel textbook. There are some really funky questions in there which will provide great preparation for the exams. If you have done every question in that textbook then I'm sure you can face any paper that comes your way.
