    Past papers help you practice exam technique. Read the mark schemes as well. That gets you used to doing exams and knowing what the examiners look for. It also helps find out where the gaps in your knowledge are.

    You should see how many past papers there are that are on the current spec.
    Do at least the last three years worth imo, but leave the most recent ones till close to the exams. Do them timed.

    If you run out of paers then try pre current spec ones.
