are past AM papers the REAL year's sitting paper?

Someone mentioned in passing that all the AM papers floating out there are the actual exam paper for that year… is this true? thanks

Yes

Yes².

Yes… if you want to make sure come back in December and check the exam posted

Hmm… Ok thanks, I’ve been doing the last 10 years and the earlier years feel simpler, 2012 was so hard… 2013 was bad too… This is not good…

the past few years have been getting and hitting harder on the Risk Management piece.

Also concentrate hard on the IPS both Indiv and Insti + Behavioral - and aim to get at the middle bucket (51-70%) at least on each of those sections… Those will help skew your score towards a pass more often than not.
