I have my AS exam for Stats and Mechanics and my exam board is Edexcel. I've done all the papers in my exam board but I still feel like I haven't prepared enough. My exam is in two weeks so I was thinking on trying other exams because a lot of ppl are saying other exam boards are way more challenging. However, I don't really know where to start or how I should avoid confusing myself with the different markschemes.

Thank you very much!

Each board does have a slightly different 'feel'. Have you asked your teacher fior all the additional resources Edexcel have produced?

Thank you for your reply.

I've asked my teacher but he mainly gives recommendations for pure instead of applied.
Thank you very much for the Dr Frost resource.

If I were to use old spec papers, how far back would you recommend?
Edexcel's papers go all the way back to 2001 apparently till present.

It's not recmmendations you need - ask for the additional practice material from the Emporium. The spec did change in 2017 when A level went modular; I'd not go back to further than 2010.
