I've got my mocks next week, starting tomorrow in C1, D1, C2, FP1 and philosophy and I dont feel that prepared but I never really thought that they're that important as long as I perform in the real things. Is this mindset bad? Why?

Mocks have their advantages and disadvantages.
They can be very realistic practice runs for your real exams. Whilst a good mock result certainly does not mean a good end result, it can be a good indicator. A bad mock result can also force you into working extra hard for your real exam.
This won't apply for your maths mocks but for philosophy, you can also highlight anything wrong with your technique and fix it asap.
Yet, mock results don't always correlate with final results. I would try and improve your mindset of mocks and perhaps take them slightly more seriously, but don't think they're the be all end all. They're just useful to see how far you are with your revision mainly. Good luck
