i did my mock exams and i got U in bio D in chem and A in psychology . ngl the subjects that you have chosen are not easy obviously im not trying to put you off but if you want to do bio then you might wanna consider dropping physics... but im no expert i am in year 12 and i was struggling with my option too and when i did my mock exams in december i really wanted to retake the whole of my AS but then now im getting A's in both bio and psychology and im working on chem....idk about your situation but for me it was my revision method etc and i just wasnt doing enough...
if you WANT revision tips im more than happy to help
plus its not the end of the world you stilll have one year to make things right..
sorry i couldnt really offer u any guidance but yhhh....

drop the one u r not good at. i have friends who do physics and maths and they say that its really hard to do physics without maths but obviously we all are different so different perspectives.....
basically the way i revise is i ONLY use textbooks. i read through the content and make sure that i have understood all of it if i feel like i havent then i watch a video on youtube or email my teachers then i close my textbook and write down as much as i can remember so basically blurting and i do in a kind of neat way so when teachers ask for notes i dont have to write up them revision cards .... i also look at the spec making sure that im learning all the content that im suppose to..
and once i have done a full module i do exam practice.
now with the lockdown situation im doing 1 module per week so i go through each and every sub topic thoroughly and then ii test my self on sunday
also make sure to keep actively recalling all your content so with me psychology has a lot of content so every week i recall a module that i learnt ages ago....that way u dont have to stress a lot when it comes to mock exams etc..
everyone is different so it might not work for you...idk...
i dont do maths and physics so i cant really give u any tips on that but anyway good luck..
