    Im in year 12 and Everyone else in my class is so smart I don't understand HOW. some of them don't even work at get 70% easily.

    Meanwhile here I am getting 35% in chemistry biology maths . yes I got 30% in all of them.

    All my friends are at least above the 50 % mark although they are struggling with AS too. All of this will go on my end of term report and it's gonna be SO EMBARRASSING. I am yet to get a single A.

    I try very hard I study every day but when it comes to the test my head jumbles.

    What can I do to improve?WILL THIS YEAR GET BETTER

    Don't worry - I got pretty much straight U's in AS Chemistry and ended up with a B. It's all about perseverance and not giving up, your teachers will understand that not everyone adapts to this huge jump as much as others do. you'll get there - on the upside A2 is much easier to get straight into.
    You'll be fine.
    If you are really struggling, tutors are great. biology is all about learning the mark schemes and the specification.

    i am in the same position like u
    u just need to have a revision timetable and STICK to it (that's what i start doing it)
    start making flashcards right now- the way i start doing it is that whenever in class we go through a new topic i make flashcards and read through them and following my revision timetable so ur lessons will b balance
    once u done with flash cards rehearsal- try some exam questions to see how u doing
    n also u can search things u dont understand if u hesitate asking the teacher like me
