I took the aqa b1 paper yesterday, and as I'm sure you know it wasn't a great paper. I feel really disappointed because I had learnt the revision guide to death and got A*'s on every past paper, but I feel like I really messed this one up as it just wasn't what I was expecting at all. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on picking yourself up after a bad exam, especially one that you actually did the work for.

I definitely know the feeling! I struggled immensely with one of my A2 Geology exams, which came as a huge shock since I'd never found Geology difficult before, consistently getting As and A*s throughout the 2 years. I wasn't complacent though, I always put the work in and revised well, but many of the questions just didn't seem to relate to the specification.
The best thing to do is to try not to dwell on it, and focus on any other exams you have. You can't revisit the exam, so all you can do now is focus on the others and wait to see how you did in August. It's possible that AQA may lower the grade boundaries if most people found the exam hard, so try not to worry too much
