    I'm fine with all of the content in chemistry, I'm really good at AS past papers too consistently getting A grades on them. However we did our first organic chemistry mock test in lesson and I ended up getting a high D, my target grade is a B or maybe even an A if I can. The thing I'm struggling with isn't the content it's applying it if that makes sense, going through the book isn't all that useful because I'm confident with everything from AS and everything we've covered in A2 so far. The only past papers I can find are specification papers which I think there's only 1 set of and old spec ones (not sure if they would be helpful) edit whoops I posted this twice by accident because my app crashed, don't know how to delete

    Find as many past papers as possible. use the mark schemes.
    If they arent enough, then try revision books as they often have mock papers. You need to id where you are losing marks and then practice.
