2024 predicted papers A level

Has anyone purchased any 2024 predicted papers for Math, Further math and physics. I have looked online and found MME predicted papers and was wondering if they are worth purchasing. If anyone has had experience with these please let me know if they are in any way accurate to the real exams.

Don't purchase "predicted exams", they're a stupid idea and a scam. Use past papers instead. Guaranteed to be similar to your exam and, even better, they're free :smile:

What if you've already used all the online exams and want extra, harder practice (that other exam boards and old papers can't give you)?

No clue, because using up all the available past exams would mean you have grossly mismanaged these resources. You're doing 3 A levels, at least 3 papers for each A level, and you have like 6 or 7 years worth' of papers since the latest specifications, plus several years of papers with the old specs (which are still useful), plus other exam boards with similar content... this amounts to hundreds of hours of potential practice. What are you doing that you used them all up?

It's better to ask your teacher for more papers. Edexcel provide lots of additional resources for free to teachers.

in edexcel maths they have locked “shadow papers”, they follow the same structure as the exams but the questions are slightly different and a bit more challenging !! i would ask your teachers for them as they have access - i use them and they’re really helpful :smile:

if you do aqa bio or chem, use oxford aqa international papers (only like 1-2 qs per paper which aren't in the spec) and if you do maths, use international papers (also have a few off spec qs). used these a lot for 2023 a-levels which helped me jump from a C to A in maths in 4 months

By the way, I have predicted papers 😂. What people don't get is the fact that prediction is not for questions. If tutors were trying to predict questions, then we know it is impossi-can't, lol. Topics are predicted based on previous trends, question type and structure. Then questions are set on these topics. You can get over 85% topic prediction accuracy but 5% questions prediction accuracy. There were times that exact questions from predicted papers came up in actual papers. It was not luck. Topic was predicted then potential question was given. Too much waffling but if you know you know. They are super helpful if you know how to use them and how you use them can also determine your grades. For example, doing only the paper hoping it is predicted so you have advantage and you go in and get disappointed. Another example is getting a good predicted paper, doing the paper, writing your score, revise the topic you performed poorly at. Then redo the paper after a couple of days. There are so many ways to use it effectively. I know I said revised and might be too late to go over content but that is what the predicted papers are for. They are to save you the stress of going over everything but rather just selecting where most of your focus should be. And tbh, if you compare 2 good predicted papers from completely different sources, the precision you get is insane. Could even be 100% precise
