    Right I know the answer to this will be to do more past paper questions but I have been doing and I'm still not getting anywhere. I'm having a lot of trouble with exams right now even when I'm trying so hard and it's not that I don't understand the content so I can't figure out what I should be doing. I feel like the my main problem is that I get too nervous in an exam and have a massive blank, for instance I got my chem paper back today and I found out that I misread questions so badly (even though i underlined the key words, i dont know how) and if i read it right in the first place I would have gotten full marks on that question and in another question i wrote the formula wrong even though I know the answer. It's been really getting to me recently because I know I understand it and I do fine when it comes to practice papers and like in the paper i got back today I could have easily gained at least 6 marks which would bump me up 2 grade. So if anyone knows how to deal with this problem could you let me know?
