I have no problem learning all the topics for the module but when it comes to actually doing the exam papers I just never seem to do well. I got 5 As in the other modules and a D in this.

Does anyone else just not click with D1? In my old college everyone dreaded the day we had to start it.

I think it's because you can make simple mistakes in D1 which lose you marks. You get one thing wrong and it can mess up the whole question
Also, a lot of people I spoke to said that they ran out of time, so missed a few questions

Yeah I've never had a problem with time in any exam really but in my D1 exam I got bogged down in all the little details of it and I think I think I still had two whole questions left by the time ten minutes were left.
