I started doing past papers today and realised I don't know the content properly to answer them. My teacher is pushing the entire class to do past papers but I really think I should carry on making notes and revising exam technique rather than past papers.
I don't even see the point in doing the past papers as I know after trying one today there are lots of topics I need to go through again. I will do past papers if I have the time but I really feel the content is more important.
I got an A in my mock concentrating on notes and exam technique so should I just leave past papers out for now?

Seriously there is NO point in doing past papers if you don't know the content. I only just started revising the content for history because my exams are in June for that. I'm not doing past papers for history until 2 weeks before that exam. You won't get anywhere without the content so learn it.

What I do for History is I look up past papers and then I plan how I would answer the questions, like an essay but in bullet points, with my notes with me so I don't have to have learnt everything. That really helps because I've gotten way more used to the style of question etc
