    I done an official maths gcse exam today and I'd like to have a spare copy of it so I can bring it home and show it to my Maths tutor. Are you allowed to do this?

    Nah, I don't think they're released until *ages* after the exam

    Sometimes your teachers are given spare copies. Maybe ask them. Not sure if your actually allowed.

    Wait, was it a real exam or a mock? Mock then yeah sure, You can probably find it online.

    No, that's not allowed. Exam papers are made available to teachers shortly after exams (I can't remember exactly how long though, it's definitely not immediately) but they are kept secure for a few months so that they can be used for mocks.

    If it was a mock you should even be able to find the paper online, if it's a real thing like people said before you can't

    We usually had to wait till the next morning for normal GCSEs and AS, I know if you're doing the IGCSE then it's longer. For maths we had to wait 48 hours. Although with C1 & S1 I was able to see the paper in the afternoon but you're not allowed to leave the classroom or take photos. It won't be online until at least 8 months but I know the edexcel papers always find a way online earlier

    My teachers are allowed to see the paper after 24 hours and they keep many copies. You could explain your situation to your teacher and maybe they'll allow you to take it home or take pictures of it idk.
