How to use past papers

How do I use past papers to revise for higher gcse math exams?
(edited 8 months ago)
Although I did foundation GCSE maths I think the use of past exam papers is similar, there are a couple ways to use them:

-Try and complete it in the same time that you would be given with an actual exam, then look at the mark scheme and see what you struggle with (it could be time, or some of the actual questions), then work from there.
-You could also use it to practice content with no time frame.

Maybe ask your teacher if they can suggest a way to use it that might be better for your own learning style?
