I suck at biology but I really like it so what can I do to get better at it.

I've tried multiple past paper questions and then revised the topics I didn't answer well in using flashcards but what else can I do?

currently on a C grade, would like to get up to A

what are AS resits like in terms of how the paper is made/structured because im considering resitting (out of my own free will)

A big part of Biology is memorisation. I recommend Seneca Learning, the base version is free, and contains all the content, then a few short questions between. Really helped me in A2 with more involved and specific stuff. Once you go through the syllabus, go back to topics you don't remember or got wrong answers on.

I did a bio resit. During covid they scored me a B 210/300 so i took it up again during the October session. I ended up scoring 278. I only did unit 1 and 2 again as in unit 3 i had gotten 54/60 and according to algorithms 90% was the highest you could achieve in the unseen papers of june 2021.
See the paper is going to be like any other paper. However do go through the past papers and see recurring questions. Learn answers for them and you will get an advantage when they come up in the exams.

There is a textbook, Concepts in Biochemistry. Rodney Boyer.

Using google you can find a online webpage of the same with explanations and truly excellent learning material.
