No. It's tempting to keep all your past papers to the end of your revision, since they're a scarce resource. However, I believe it's really important to do some early on, so that you can assess where your weaknesses are, and direct your revision or adjust your strategy appropriately.

A good teacher will introduce you to past questions as you learn the content - at the beginning this is a good approach. There is little point in doing a past paper before you've met the content and mark schemes aren't written to teach you so they don;t explain why that approach is used.
