The old spec had regular maths A-level:
Core maths: C1,C2,C3,C4 plus 2 from: S1,S2,M1,M2,D1

& old spec further maths:
FP1,FP2,FP3,FP4 plus 2 from remaining S1,S2,M1,M2,D1 (but not ones used towards A-level maths).
Additionally some exam boards did:
FP1,FP2,FP3 plus 3 from remaining S1,S2,M1,M2,D1

I imagine it won’t be, I think they’ll be significant differences. You might be able to pick out individual questions from past papers but I don’t think you can use the paper as representative.

So how should I prepare myself for the fm exam with the so limited past papers available

You use what they provide, its the same for everybody.

2 or 3 sample/past papers is enough so that you can get a feel for the structure and timing.

Ask your teachers -we were provided with loads of speimen papers and practice papers. 2019 will be released soon ... I presume you've found Dr Frost's brilliant website?
