What do you prefer? Do you feel that one is a better way of revision than the other?
Past papers in bulk: dedicating a whole day (or however long) to a certain subject or exam.
For example: Revise -> exam paper -> mark and go through mistakes -> repeat
Spreading them out/Switching between subjects: Revising for different subjects/exams and completing different exam papers (in a single day).
For example: Revise Maths -> exam paper -> mark and go through mistakes -> Revise Chemistry -> exam paper -> mark and go through mistakes.
Has anyone been successful with either approaches?

I prefer the spreading them out approach.
I think the brain copes better with things a lot more after sleeping on them, so I would go for example 2.
If I do more than one paper a day from the same subject I will probably remember the mistakes I made in the previous paper and rectify them for the second one because I had only just done it that day. However, if you do a new paper the following day, then you can really test to see whether you can learn from your mistakes.
