    I got a U in the December mock 30/80 (pass 40/80), so I have to resit. What I am doing is making cue cards, with all the information on one side and questions about all the information on the other, to practice content before past paper questions. I would suggest you do this also as there is no other way to learn the info, other than by rote and making your own questions, you know that you will be revising everything. My Biology teacher recommends a past paper a week so do this when you are confident with the content - if you are failing, I am sure your teacher will be happy to mark them for you.

    Find some questions about moles and we work through them. Its best to isolate the specific problem areas and tackle them rather than saying you are not good at a subject.
