    Hey guys, got exams coming up for maths and further maths soon and I was wondering if I could do past papers from other exam boards. I'm with Edexcel. Also, which exam board has the hardest maths papers? I've heard from most people that it's OCR. Is Maths and Further Maths similar between exam boards? I've done all the past papers for my modules from Edexcel and Solomon and I need more to occupy myself! I am about to kill Maths and Further Maths with Past Papers!!!!!

    Have you heard of the solomon papers? The OCR content overlaps quite a bit with C1-4 Edexcel but there isn't much overlap between FP1-3 OCR and Edexcel.

    I did those papers for C1-4 but it sucks that there isn't any for applied modules or Further Pure.

    There are booklets with lots of questions on each topic. Past papers aren't necessarily the best practice.

    I have a cute problem for you, that I just came across now. Initially posed by Fermat:
    'Given three points in a plane, find a fourth point such that the sum of its distances to the three given points is as small as possible'.

    The famous question "What happens when an unstoppable force meets an unstoppable wall" actually refers to his and DFranklins maths abilities.

    I do remember one actually about the sum of lengths to the sides of an equilateral triangle.
    The sum is constant I believe for the points inside any triangle.

    ah yes that might be it. Probably a little different then but maybe same ideas involved
