    Hiya, I'm doing chemistry, biology and english literature and I received my mock results a couple of weeks ago.
    I really enjoy my subjects (english not so much haha) and I want to put the work in. Has anyone got any tips or have they improved by a big amount a want to share their secret with me? I struggle with exam technique and how to structure essays to get good grades for English Literature and for Chemistry, organic chemistry and remembering how to do calculations and stuff just generally in chemistry even though I understand them initially in class.
    Any help would be much appreciated!
