My DS has been given some AS Solomon Press Maths papers by his school and says he finds them somewhat harder than the OCR papers he is used to doing. Are these Solomon Press papers beneficial to his exam preparation or should he just stay with the OCR past papers?

They are written to be harder than the 'real' A level papers if this is maths we are talking about?

I would use them if you run out of OCR papers.

Yes, it is Maths and Further Maths.

Thanks for your help Guest 55, as always.

No problem - they are a better match for Edexcel I think.

There's so many 'old' papers to use that, unless you are really looking for a particular type of question, these papers can demoralise students which, at this stage, is the last thing you need!

Having done all the Solomon papers my lovely step brother has found C1 and C2 easy. Very conscientious young man. Obviously not mine!
