    Hi,
    I'm doing my a level maths this summer, and im doing WJEC. Maths is definitely my weakest subject so Ive made sure ive done every paper. However, ive noticed that all the pre-2013 papers are all easier, and suddenly the 2014 papers onwards are really hard (if any of you do wjec, you will know exactly what i mean). The problem is, im not 'gifted' at maths, and if i dont understand something on the paper i just panic and leave it out. I want to try and change this in the meantime (ive got about a month until the exam) by looking at papers from other exam boards so that i expose myself to 'different' harder questions. Ive heard aqa are quite hard, but does anyone have any other suggestions??
    Thank you!

    CIE and OCR MEI are good. Edexcel IAL C34 papers aren't bad. You could also try MadasMaths IYGB or special papers
