    I've been really struggling with chemistry A level (salters ocr) recently in exams and it's frustrating me because I understand all the content in lessons ect but when it comes to exam papers I just don't seem to be able to pick up many marks the only thing that it seems it could be down to is my exam technique because I get everything else, I don't get all worked up about exams and I'm doing fine with my other subjects, if anyone can provide any tips on how to improve the help would be much appreciated

    Past Papers, past papers, past papers... over and over again until you get the grade you want.

    I am doing OCR B Salters, but it is a similar course and the exam format is pretty much the same. Highly specific markschemes. I turned one of my AS papers from a D to an A by making sure I was doing past papers. Learn off the mark schemes and at the same time make sure you know your stuff inside out.

    Hope that helps
