    I tried so hard in my mocks and revised all the time. The funny thing is that I understand all the content in the specification but the exam was so specific with their answers. I did try practice questions towards the exams and I did fairly well in them.
    Can anyone help in telling me what else I can do? Or what is/was beneficial for you?
    Btw I'm taking A-level Chemistry, first year and the board is AQA
    Thank you

    Sorry, should've mentioned this before. But yeah I got a D.
    Apparently my whole school didn't do well in this test but that's just an average.

    right so it's not disasterous. And if what you said is true (that you understand ALL of the content), then you will be fine as long as you practice your exam technique. Do every past paper available.
