Ok, so I have 3 higher edexcel maths past papers.
How do you do them effectively, and so you learn the most out of it?
This is what I currently do:
Look at question, search it up, try to form an answer.
But I think this isn't really good, how do you guys do them?

Find the mark scheme!

Give the test a go without using anything to help you (timing yourself is also a good idea). Write in one colour (perhaps in a second for anything you do after time is up).
Use your book/notes to answer any other questions, using another colour.
Go through with a markscheme and check every question. Give yourself a score on both colours. Write correct answers down somewhere.
This way, you learn what you know and you learn what you don't. Make sure to right down anything you struggled in and needed to use notes/markscheme so you can revise it. Don't just write the topic, be specific.
Maybe a few weeks later, look over it again and see if you improve.
The idea of using papers is to get used to exam papers/the style and also to see what you need to revise more. That's what you should be focusing on.
