How many past papers are we unable to access online for the new linear A level specification?

Is there just 1 specimen paper? Can we access this?
3 2017 year 2 papers
3 2016 year 2 papers
any from 2015?
Any 'AS'/year 1 papers (that didn't count towards the A level)

On the OCR website you can access (without an interchange login i.e. students): the June 2016 AS papers Breadth and Depth with mark schemes along with specimen Breadth and Depth papers and there is 1 set of specimen A level papers (Periodic table, elements & physical, synthesis & analytical techniques and unified chemistry) that we can access. The new spec is from 2015 with first assessment in 2016 which was only AS, so any past papers from 2015 are old spec. The June 2017 papers are supposed to become available in “early May” to students according to the OCR website.

But, I believe there are multiple sets of specimen/sample papers and also June 2017 papers available to teachers and those with an interchange login - your teacher will probably give you those papers now if they’re not planning to use them as mocks beforehand.

ok thanks, this was really helpful. The teachers keep going on about how the sample papers are under high control so they are slowly but surely printing them out as they won't email them. Do you know if these sample papers will become available ever?
