I was looking through the topics and I can see that I understand it all, but my brain won't produce the answers in an exam setting because I don't have enough practice. I wonder why human brain works this way. I know this stuff, yet the brain would block the right answers from me because I haven't written it down repeatedly.

I suggest practice, watch YouTube videos and let your end goal be your motivation

I wish one day's of practice is enough, but I know I'll be fooling myself if I say it is. A-level questions require the answers to be at the tip of your pen at all times for any remotely good result.

Human brain is so powerful, but I wonder why is it so slow in cementing concepts? Even if know everything about a topic, my brain would go blank on a question just because I haven't practiced it enough.

It’s all you can do at this point, you got yourself into this situation so get yourself out of it

Yes. I got myself into this situation. The worldly forces also worked against me, but I'd still take the blame on myself because Stoic philosophy dictates one should always try to take the blame himself before pointing fingers. I just wonder if all the information can be neatly organised in my brain in a day like files on a file cabinet. Why can't it be done? I mean looking around me, I marvel at how far humans have progressed just with a little tool called brain. Why can't this same brain fit information on just 10-12 topics for one day?

The only thing you can do is revise. You're just going to have to cram until the exam and hope for the best. Put everything to the side and just consume the content for the next few hours cus there's not much else you can do. Just get on with it. Heres one of my favourite quotes:

"your future depends on what you do today, and today has already started."

If I were you pull an allnighter and sleep after.
