Maths past paper: till which year should I do?

Recommended Posts

I'm downloading and doing past papers, but till which year should I complete? When was the most recent syllabus change? Cause I don't wanna find questions that aren't in the exam.

I'll be writing the exam 2012 May.

Thanks.

The most recent change was in 2008. However I'd recoment to look for exams up to 2006 because between 2006 and 2008 the only difference is the format of the exam, and the content of the questions is the same ;)

I usually try to solve papers from 2005+. Anything before that seems to old for me, or outdated for the new syllabus (IMO).

Even the older ones are useful, the main difference is that they used to have options in SL Math (similar to the ones in HL Math) and the questions on options on older papers are too difficult to solve with the current syllabus. In general the exams have been the same for years so if you've run out of newer papers I'd certainly take advantage of very old papers too.

Don't forget that there are May and November papers for each year. As well, for the May exams there is a timezone 1 and a different timezone 2 paper (November exams have one one timezone). So for each year you should have 3 full exams to practice with.

My examinations will start May/2012 ... and honestly I haven't studied anything during this summer for any of my 6 subjects :S

Do I have to ? I am only working on my internals,TOK Essay, Extended Essay and CAS.
