    It wouldn't hurt to start now, if you run out of them just do them again nearer to the exam time.

    If that unit has a separate past paper then yes. I'm planning on doing the same subjects next year.

    I'd Say focus on your knowledge first , make sure you know everything , as 40% of your questions that you get in your exam will be different from all past paper questions , so you should probably make sure you know the content , if you cant explain something easily/simply than you dont understand it. SO focus on your content as this will help you answer questions you have never seen before , especially the harder ones , then do past papers , to Fill gaps in your knowledge and get better exam technique , if you know the content 1 month before your exams and you spend 1 month doing past paper questions im sure you will get an A.
