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

      doing it now will help you understand what you need to work on. Then do it again after a few months and keep going over them.. hope this helped

      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.
