I've started doing past papers for science as a part of my revision for GCSEs however I keep getting most of the answers wrong. Is this a good thing? It's just really worrying me.

Wouldn't necessarily say it's a good thing to get everything wrong, but it is good that you can see which topics that you're weaker in! You'll be fine as long as you note down the topics you get wrong and revise them by using Seneca, reading the textbook or making notes. Good luck!

If you're losing a large number of marks (in particular if these marks put you some way below your target) then perhaps you're not quite ready to start on past papers, and you should start by reviewing content. Though bear in mind, you will get some marks for correct working, so it might not be as bad as it first seems.
