I plan on self-studying:
A level Further maths

CP1 & CP2 in 35 days (5 weeks) (30 more days will be spent on past papers & revision)

FS1 in 29 days (4weeks) (30 more days left for past papers or revision)
FD1 in 34 days (5 weeks) (30 more days left for past papers or revision)

There are total of 800 pages in the textbooks. I'd have to complete 16 pages a day which would mean 8 sets of 1 hour study sessions a day (1 page every 30 min)
I got a 9 in GCSE maths last year and have no current responsibilities

If you use Google and Bing search engines, extremely 'effectively,' then you can find almost all the past exam papers with mark schemes and sometimes the examiner's report too. Also, don't forget to use YouTube with some very interesting channels for A-Level Maths and A-Level Further Maths as well.

I am also doing FS1, FD1, FM1 and FM2 too. Because Mechanics in Further Maths is almost covering half of A-Level Physics. lol

There are past papers for D1

Specimen 2000 and Specimen 2009

November 2002, 2003, 2004

January 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013

June 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

International Advanced Levels are exactly the same for most modules and still are even for the most recently written modules: lol

January 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

June 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

About 50 past papers for D1 Pearson Edexcel alone and OCR, OCR MEI and AQA are very similar too.

This was very helpful I didn't know there were all of these other exam papers.
Are you going to do 200 papers for each module (50 for each exam board)? or is that too much?
Wondering how many past papers most a level maths students do

I will do as many past question papers as I can. I can share them with you too on a Google drive in March once I organise them all.

A* and A candidates do almost all the papers they can find. lol

Really! so thats like 200 papers per exam papers, 7 papers for M&FM. 200 * 7 = 1400 past papers...bruh I won't have enough time to do that many I think since I'm guessing it will take an hour per paper at least

I'm looking at doing 20past papers/30/40 for each module
