Mock exams in one week! Need help Watch
The problem is that a lot of people on TSR say that when you do a past paper, mark it and identify the areas you got wrong and do as many questions as you can on those areas. Well, I started past papers a week ago and do not have time to do a lot of questions on the areas that I got wrong as I want to do every past paper(old spec ones). What are the actual point of past papers? What's the solution ?
The point of past papers is to see what the questions will be like, as exam questions are really similar every year. They also give an idea of how long the exam will take you and where you should spend more time. I'm not an expert on this, but I think the solution would be to understand why you made the mistakes you made and how you could improve them. You don't have to do many specific practice questions on the mistakes you made unless you have time, and that is often less productive than just understanding why you made the mistake.
