Like the title says, where can I find AQA GCSE Chemistry higher tier past papers with mark schemes?

I've checked on the AQA website but can only seem to find a 2018/specimen paper. Is there nothing from 15/16/17?

Any help is appreciated.

The reason you cannot find lots of past papers is since the AQA Chemistry you're doing is rather new in terms of spec. It only started teaching in 2016 and the only exams that have been sat using it will have been June 2018. These papers are locked from public view for teachers to use as mocks for this year.

You can find lots of AQA Chemistry papers for the older spec via https://revisionscience.com/gcse-rev...ry-past-papers
The spec is different but it's got some similarities. However don't rely on these. Look at questions in your new text books ,revision guides ect.

Ok thanks, do you know any relevant text books and revision guides that would have similar questions related to the new spec?

I would think in class you're using a quite thick text book to learn from? That will have some questions in. However I couldn't specifically recommend what would be best as i'm long past my GCSE days :lol:

There is this however: https://www.physicsandmathstutor.com...sion/gcse-aqa/
It has questions appropriate to each topic as well as mark schemes... And it's free!

You could also talk to your teacher about what they recommend or if they have a question bank suitable for the new spec.

I'm a tutor and its been a while since I've done my GCSE's aha. That website looks really good, thanks. I'll get my student to ask his teacher about the question banks.

He has a big CGP book however when I looked through the specimen paper, the CGP book misses a lot of content thats in the past paper :/
