Do past papers help you revise! watch

    • Thread Starter

    My friends all tell me past papers are good for revising. But how do you revise past papers? All i know is:
    Do the paper
    Check with mark scheme
    Do the same paper until you get 100%

    Is this how you revise with past papers?

    Don't do the same paper over and over again.
    Try to find a few different papers, do them, and see which questions you got the least marks in.
    Revise those subjects as a priority, find some new papers to do or, if you can't, do the same papers again.
    Repeat until super smart .

    Do check the mark scheme but learn from the weaknesses you've found in certain sections and revise them from notes.
    Also check out the examiner reports to see what the examiner really wants in an answer.
