last

Be careful you do not mean “past”.

Last indicates there is no more to come.

This is especially true when you are referring to periods of time.

It is the past year just gone not the last year meaning there will be no more years.

“In the past eight months his symptoms have worsened.”

“Their team came last in the race.”
