    Hey! I'm currently doing AS Geography Literature Business and Sociology

    Are you meant to revise all content, and then move onto past papers? Or is it okay for me to try and complete some past papers although i haven't gone over all content?
    And also, does anyone have any past paper questions for Edexcel Business?
    Thank you?

    1. Whatever suits you, just be aware of the conditions in which you did the test i.e with your books and untimed, as long as you wnat no books, full exam conditions.
    2. They are on the edexcel site

    For sociology it is possible to start writing out past paper answers even if you haven't revised everything. I found it a lot easier in the exam than I thought I would, because the wording in the questions and the items/sources really help jog your memory

    Generally speaking, working through past exam papers with an open book is a great way to revise. It helps you learn how to apply material in context and how to structure an answer. When you can do it without the books, it obviously trains you to recall the information in an exam situation (if you set a time limit etc). I would recommend it, if that's what you want to do.

    First of all, stop putting question marks at the end of everything, it's not grammatically correct (which won't serve you well in the exam) and it makes you seem "panicky" for want of a better word.

    Secondly, it is imperative that you practise your exam skills as early as possible, any content revision on top is a bonus. You will find that you keep improving in your marks as you do more content revision. There is no wrong way to revise, the fact that you already have this mindset is the biggest hurdle.

    Finally, past papers for business can be found here, including the all new 2015 papers!!!
