Is it too late to start revising again properly now? revised hard for mocks and got a D because I didn't put the keywords the mark scheme wanted even though my answer was sort of correct. Aiming for A/B and thinking right now its too late because we still have so much to cover as well

I started revising for A-Levels around this time, but it helped doing some decent revision for mocks before (which I imagine you did or tried to do). I did Biology, and I completely understand what you mean about the key words. What I would do alongside your revision is really study some mark schemes so you know the key words they expect you to know for each topic. Try going through a bunch of past papers, look at common questions (they often do similar or slightly changed questions year on year) and just questions on certain topics in general, and collect the key words you get the marks for. Try making a key words list for each topic and/or super common questions. Good luck!
