    If you can, ask your teachers for help outside of lessons. Get some workbooks (the CGP ones are quite good), and go through them carefully. Make sure to ask about anything you don't understand.

    Do you have any class tests that you can use to identify your weak topics?

    Learn all the basic things that you don't understand and then work your way up , the fact that you know you need help is good.

    Surely you have some kind of marked assessment at hand?

    Odd, that makes marked assessment completely worthless. Perhaps ask your teacher if you could get your marked work for revision?

    What exam board are you following? I suspect you don't have enough clarity on the topics you are doing which is making it hard for you to pass. If I were you, I would start from the 1st chapter in the CGP books and not only start learning the stuff but also try and understand it so you know how it works. Also, ask your teacher to give you your marked assessments back because theres no point if you aren't allowed access to them.

    I have no idea what exam board I am I think it's OCR could be completely wrong, and I fined the CGP books really hard to understand is there any others you could recommend
