I'm currently in year 12, and taking bio,chem,physics and maths. With the sciences having been changed this year, are past papers from previous years worth doing? If not then how would you recommend to revise? Thanks in advance

Definitely still worth doing! The content of the specifications hasn't changed much. I'm not sure which exam board you're doing but I do OCR A and saw the new AS textbooks- they have pretty much the same content (but they are so much better than what I have to use...). Past papers are the best way to revise for the sciences and maths so doing those is probably the only way. I tend to use old spec papers once I'm out of current spec papers (I go back as far as 2002) and once I do all of those I move on to AQA/Edexcel questions because, again, other than the wording of questions, nothing is all that different. Also at my school they seem to use the old papers for new sciences anyway- all mocks etc. From what I've seen anyway!

Good luck with your A Levels (I'm in year 13 doing the same A Levels so I know the struggle...)!
