Are you having trouble with understanding the concepts? Or is it the exam technique?

Try revision guides if you still find concepts confusing after revising. And to help with exam technique, do as much past paper as you can, then look at why you got certain questions wrong.

cram 2 day and night before. read the mark scheme to see what phrase/terms they use because these science exams are so specific, like you can learn all the content you want but when writing down answers, some words has to be exactly how the markscheme wants it.

you can get more than a C sometimes.

Ctamming helps you retain info, but at some stage you need to understand it on some level. Your notes should be better than the revision guide, but if not, then obviously use the guide plus dont forget to look over some papers.
