Heya! I'm year 10 as well and can completely relate to your issue. At the beginning of this year, my grades hit an all time low. My science grades especially. I was scoring under 10% of marks on nearly every test. I never focused in class and never took the time out to study. Then I moved to year 10 and began to try. The best way to pick your grades up is to focus as much as you can in class. Ask questions if you need to. Avoid talking to friends and such in lessons, it's a distraction. Also, take time to study subjects at home. So you can really understand anything you learnt throughout the day. Doing this, I'm now one of the top-achievers in most my classes. I'm scoring above 95% on every test, and I'm still going. If you keep up revision and all, you'll be fine to get the grades you want to achieve. Trust me.

lots of practice papers and questions will help you with timing in religious studies- if you got 1/13 though there's probably gaps in your knowledge too so make sure you have some notes or flashcards.
you've still lots of time to improve so don't worry too much, a lot can happen in the next 2 years.
focus in lessons, make sure you're making notes for each subject as you're going along so you're not stressed when it comes to exams. revise regularly too, in small chunks though- you don't want to overdo it!! consolidate learning at home, especially if you found stuff difficult in class.
quizlet's good for languages, i believe cgp does practice stuff for german listening so worth purchasing some of their stuff on amazon.
