It is possible. Go over the AS content again, specifically the questions/topics you got wrong or didn’t understand.

What do you think caused you to get this grade? Lack of revision? Not revising the right way?

No one knows if you can get an A next year, and anecdotal evidence won't help.

If you've done lots of revision and got a D, then perhaps change the way you're revising? Are you using the exam board's resources fully? Reading examiner's reports for common mistakes or analysing mark schemes to see if they're looking for a specific way to explain things/specific keywords?

I wouldn't stress too much about the result itself, make sure you understand where you went wrong and chemistry is all about memorisation (I got an A at a level) and our teacher was always stressing to memorise patterns and formulas etc 👍

In terms of advice I would say there are afew key things I did :
1) I always made additional notes after class to Consolidate what I'd learned.
2)I completed loads of past paper questions, from the spec I was on and the older spec ( I did aqa)
3)I learned the ways that the markschemes worked inside out so I could maximise the amount of marks if get from each answer.

Other than the above I'd say that you should take a good look over your specification and see if there are any specific things you could memorise to make your life easier. For example my teacher got us to memorise all the reactions related to transition metals, because if they were to come up as a question in the exam (or as apart of the question) it was essentially free marks and I wouldn't waste time trying to rack my brains for it. Hope this helps 👍
