I can't conceive of a reason why they would give you an old spec paper. The level is considerably different, the grade boundaries on the new spec are like 20-25% lower, or more. The content has been reshuffled significantly with a lot added outside core pure. There are plenty of new spec papers they can give you. (2019, 2020, a few locked mock sets)

You shouldn't be practicing primarily with old spec papers, you will miss a lot and probably not do hard enough questions.
