    I finished doing all the chapters from a levels book. i followed Pearson's AS and A Level modular mathematics book for C3 and C4 by keith pledger (blue and green colour book). i did some maths from each chapter for understanding the rules and formulas and did mixed chapters. i skipped the 6th chapter(Integration) of C4 entirely and have a little trouble solving differentiations which i'm still practicing by the way.
    My question is how many past papers should i do atleast since I only have 4 days left for the exam? I need atleast a C so can anyone help me please?

    Not sure why this is even a question. There are very few C34 past papers as IAL is a relatively new qualification. Do them all. With the limited study you have done it is vital to try to learn some exam technique.
    When you run out of them do mostly C3 past papers from the UK specification and the few questions you will be able to do from C4 papers until you run out of time.
    The examsolutions.net site has worked solutions to most C3 and 4 papers if you get stuck, though they don't do the IAL ones.

    i collected c34 past paper of 2016 2015 2014 both january and june. Will these 6 papers be enough if i practice them multiple times? And if i do go for C3 and C4 past papers, up to which year should i practice? i mean didnt they change some specifications after 2010 or something?
    i got an old book from a friend and it has chapter wise past papers of all units from may 2005 to january 2010. i plan to finish them all then move to the latest 6 C34 papers. will that be a wise decision?

    Any exam practice you can do will improve your readiness but the C34 is the most important because while the maths content is the same, the style of questions is a little different from the separate 3 and 4 papers. Doing the same paper more than once has never applealed to me but if it works for you then why not.
    The uk specification for C3 and C4 is unchanged from 2005 so any paper you do is fine. You may find a few C3 and C4 R (regional papers) that are more recent and worth using.

    Thank you very much. I was quite confused and worried about these but the information you provided helped me a lot.

    C34 is the single unit exam in Edexcel international A level maths that combines the knowledge from the separate C3 and C4 units in the UK exams.
