Most of it is part of the syllabus, but even if bits aren't, why ignore them? If you're doing linear physics, prepare for some tough and 'off-script' Qs.

Honestly no. Not a bit. I just recommend you to do the tougher past papers of other exam boards such as aqa Physics a, physics b and also edexcel b

I've seen v few Isaac Qs where I'd think 'they're not really meant to ask something like this in the linear exams'. If the old specs are still going, tailoring your revision to it is more productive. Note other boards had/have differing content and Q style too.

On 1 exam board in 1 year. Across multiple synoptics, prepare for scope and variation in Q type (& difficulty).

I've seen v few Isaac Qs based on non GCSE/A-Level material, you don't have to do them ofc. Well done btw.

That's something to consider, but I still think taking heed of markschemes/phrasing for wordy Qs on one board would help with another generally.

You can do past papers on your board and synoptic Qs/papers from other sources. This should cover the bases for any kind of synoptic exam you'd get.
