I have my AS controlled assessments coming up soon as have heard about how easy it is to get low marks, and that there isnt a massive gap between each grade. What could I do for preparation/practise? My teacher said we cant do anything to prepare

If you're doing OCR A in AS then we really can't do anything. Chemistry is titration and i'm pretty sure you don't have the set to do it, so learn as much as you can when you do the practice. And learn the titration calculations.
And biology, it's full of rubbish practical and you certainly can't practice that except the quantitative one. The quantitative one is where you draw a tissue at low and high power magnification looking through a light microscope. And biology practicals are just pointless. But you can get good marks if you follow the steps and in some cases you can get easy marks for eg. 1 mark for safety (so for putting your goggles on)

Hope i was some help
