I got a C when I first did the exam last year. What I've been doing throughout the year is going over my notes and making sure I have a throughout understanding of each topic. I realised this now in A2, in order to pass chemistry a level you cannot just learn and memorise. simply understand and go over past paper questions. My teacher said that the paper I sat was probably the easiest paper yet.
My advice would be to learn all the equations (PV=nRT etc.). practice as many past papers as you can. Personally I am aiming to do each past paper until I get an A in each of them. Have you used the ''A-Level Chemistry'' website? If not definitely use this, it consists of practice past paper questions relevant to each topic from the specification. If your stuck ask your teacher or watch youtube videos like khan academy or any other video that is following the AQA specification. If you want old past papers I would recommend you to use the ''xtremepapers'' website, which has papers from 2001. Just be careful that some topics in those papers were a part of the old syllabus. My teacher has also made practice papers so if you want I can send them to you. Sorry for the long post!

We have just started mechanisms too. I know what you mean it is a little confusing to get your head round.

I'm just worried because I have another exam on the same day at the same time so I'm scared I'll forget everything as I don't know which exam I'm sitting first.
