    Hi so I'm doing my A2 Levels this June, and I take Bio, Chem, Physics and Maths. Because of a lot of personal problems I've had to start revision a bit later than last year, so I can't do as many past papers as I did in my AS Levels. I did past papers from 2009 to 2015 last year, but I'm afraid I won't have as much time to do six years this year. So will 2011 to 2015 suffice? Thank you for your help

    Nobody can tell you this. People aren't all the same. There isn't a magic formula that says x number of past papers in = high grades out. People have different levels of aptitude, intelligence and motivation. What is true for one person is not automatically true for another. You should do the best that YOU can do. You obviously are keen to do well, and that's half the battle, but nobody can give you a magic number of past papers that will automatically lead to success. Doing them is good if you understand what is required to answer them. Even if you did all the past papers there ever were, it would be no use if you did them all badly because you didn't understand the content. Make sure you understand the work first, rather than worrying about exactly how many papers you can do.

    Do them all. Do them thrice if possible.
