    We can't tell you where you went wrong just from the fact that you got a B.
    Where did you lose marks usually?
    How did you feel about the exam?

    Your expereince in GCSE should've showed you that a lot of the marks in an exam are exam technique. You could know everything, but if you don't answer the question, and don't do what it tells you to do / don't explain something clearly, the examiner can't reward you.
