So, I am doing a level bio, chem and maths. Really struggling in maths with the applied units and I don't know what to do.

They can definitely be difficult to get your head around. Any topics in particular that are problematic?

Mechanics mainly connected bodies and I don't understand the normal distribution.

My advice for connected bodies problems in mechanics is to start over at the beginning of the chapter, back to the last place where things made sense.
Look carefully at the steps taken in the worked examples. Try to apply those same steps in the questions you do. A lot of the time it's the same thing but with the values slightly different.

Tension's an annoying part, especially with pulleys - just treat it as a kind of reaction force. For one particle the tension is what pulls it along, for the other, the tension pulls it back.

What do you understand and not understand about the normal distribution?

All the probabilities stuff and the questions in the textbook don't make sense.

Well... doesn't really narrow it down tbh. If I gave you a mean and a variance, would you be able to find the probability of X < some random value x?
The normal distribution gives you the value of a continuous random variable on the x-axis, and the area underneath the bell curve within a range gets you the probability of something being within that range. If it helps, think about definite integration - you find the area from one point to another.
The area underneath the curve of a normal distribution function gives you the cumulative probability. The total area under the curve is equal to 1.

Ignore the y-axis.

Hey, dont worry your not on your own. It is a very stressful time for everyone! Have you spoken to your maths teacher about this?
