    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I predict you are asking this for french? If so, then yes a few edexcel questions won't hurt but make sure you've done all the aqa ones first. If you're not asking for french, then sorry

    For mathematics, it wouldn't hurt. All maths practice is useful

    For sciences, I'd say no, as some content is different, and the main point of past papers is learning the types of questions and responses they ask and are looking for, respectively. Therefore, doing a different exam board would not be beneficial or recommended, as it could potentially be detrimental.

    English, absolutely not as english is very specific to the exam board in terms of the questions you are asked and the respective syllabuses.

    Though I can't see how languages would be exceptionally harmful, but to me it'd make more sense to do your exam board.

    Hope this helps.
