    help! I am so terrible at chemistry and i've had a bad teacher all year and its my C4,5,6 exam on wednesday and I'm revising but nothing's sticking in my memory.
    And are the grade boundaries generally quite low for chemistry exams? Because everything's so technical and I cannot imagine myself getting many marks on the exam.
    It's definitely a certain type of brain that can understand chemistry and mine is the polar opposite.

    Hey, I used to struggle a lot with Chemistry too. I was on a U grade at the beginning of the year and I am now hoping to achieve an A (which I achieved in recent Chemistry mocks).
    I would advise speaking to another teacher to see if they can help you out. What worked for me was using flashcards. Constantly testing myself on my knowledge has been the only thing that has helped me to retain information. But I do think that the boundaries are quite low.

    Good luck
