    Help! I am really struggling in chemistry. I do my revsion but once it comes to exams my brain doesn't seem to work and I end up with U grades. I'm doing AS and I've had 2 practice exams which I've been getting U grades! I work really hard too I go over all the notes I've made (using flash cards) but still.

    Why is it that I'm failing despite me putting in so much effort. I feel as though my teachers are beginning to think that I'm just too dumb and I've afraid they may tell me to stop taking chemistry.

    Am I failing in exams due to me having a poor revision technique? (I learn notes using flashcards and sometimes I do some practice papers).
    Can you please give me some revision techniques for chemistry and any good revsion websites I can use (exam board is OCR).

    Thank you

    Hi,
    Personally just find the right checklist, look at all the skills needed, find the hardest past paper questions you can find on those checks, and learn how to do those. I find if I can do the harder questions, I find the mocks easy.
