    Hi,
    I'm basically here to share my story and find out whether other people have been going through the same bad news.
    I got 8As in the prelim, and most of the Qs on the economics paper was from the 2014 final exam, which was the only proper past paper at the time.
    I did a lot of revision with Int 2 papers, but they were not relevant, and the content of my final exam was different to what I had revised for. Also there is no course textbook for this subject unfortunately!
    Now studying for my AH prelims after getting 5A grades at Higher and applying for medical school.
    Has anyone else done tons of past papers and still got a bad grade?

    Ok, does anyone know how getting bad grades due to a lack of relevant material can be prevented?

    I suppose I could have done the model papers book for it, but surely it would have been way too expensive to buy model papers for all 8 of my subjects?
