When I was doing my business Alevel I had a similar situation: B's and C's on practice papers, U on my final exam. The truth is I got bad grades for my mocks too and just didn't see the point.
What you need to do is get your mock paper and comb through it. See what questions you did wrong and why so that you can make sure you do better next time.
Doing past papers is phenominal for revision, but its not the entire story. You need to become acquainted with mark schemes and talk to teachers too.
Wishing you the best!

No problem. Just make a list of all the topics, who knows they may be ones you didn't revise as much because you felt really confident about them!
Also, exam conditions change everything. It may be worth working on some centering techniques so you don't get hit by stress when exam time comes and you're sat in the hall taking your test.

Same here, I thought about computer science as mostly coding and scripting. I only do well in the coding/scripting parts, as oppose to the other bits. Might drop it too.

Unlucky, my school have (maybe) offered me to drop it in favour for higher grades in other subjects, as I'm not doing too well in them (averaging around 5s, and 6s) and i'm expected and can do 7s and possibly 8s, and that their causing a lot of stress for me. You never know, you can ask your school, and maybe they'll allow you to drop it.
