    Befriend the top students, see what they do and how they revise.

    You could also ask a private tutor.

    This is a complex question, and as Analyst says, getting a tutor could be helpful. Firstly, though, have you talked to your teachers at school? Are they able to look at your work and advise you at all?

    There are a number of things that could be the problem:

    1. Not understanding the source material sufficiently.
    2. Understanding the source material, but not having an effective revision strategy.
    3. Understanding the source material and revising it well, but not answering the exam questions in the best way.

    If your teachers at school aren't able to help, tutors are very used to dealing with all three of these issues. A good one should be able to identify what the problems are for you, and help you implement strategies to improve.

    If you do decide you'd like to find a tutor, you can use our site to search for your specific subject area(s) and contact tutors directly (or ask a parent or guardian to do so on your behalf if you're under 18):

    Good luck with your studies!
