Hi

Where can I find difficult a level maths and further maths questions? whenever i do an actual exam the questions are always 10x harder and way more complicated than what i've practised at home (like in the textbook). say for example I want to do hard questions on hyperbolic functions topic, where is the best place to look?

thanks all

I tend to use Solomon papers from physicsandmathstutor. They're quite hard and challenging so when it comes to the exam I feel like the questions are easier. Let me know whether you decide to use this or not and if so let me know how you find it!

Look at Edexcel's 'Gold' papers. I think there's also a TSR thread on this...Notnek?

This has all papers including Core modules, Further Pure modules, Decision, Statistics and Mechanics for anyone else that might find this useful!

Solomon papers are listed below whichever module it is you want to focus on, hope it helps!

I did a levels maths and further maths. A level maths was easy so you don’t need to worry about that. F maths was way harder so you need loads of practice for that. Use your textbook, integral maths, physics and maths tutor

I got this from Examsolutions.

You should be able to find a list for further maths topics too under his page. Good luck!

And for anymore queries just let me know I’m more than happy to help!

thanks for this, it is extremely helpful. Can I ask where you got the list from just so I can find a similar one for further maths later?

Yeah, definitely use the Solomon papers and the bronze, silver, gold papers. They’re available on mrbartonmaths and websites like that
