    A really important thing to consider why you under-performed is how did you revise? i.e did you take notes, make diagrams etc

    I use to make concise notes from a my textbook and then read them out aloud to commit them to memory. I then tested whether I new the knowledge without looking at my notes.

    You should test if you have actually retained the knowledge, e.g. by writing it down without looking at the book.
    Once you feel confident that you know the content do questions on the topic.

    may i ask what the topic of the test was? perhaps i could help you

    I got an F at the start of year 10 in a mock. However, I turned it around and at the end of year 10 I was lucky enough to sit the real exam with a few other students and got a C out of it. There's plenty of time to turn this around. If you're interested the exam was in mid-June and I started intense revision on and off from mid-March.
