How to increase grade in chemistry

Hi there,
I am currently doing maths, physics and chemistry at A level, looking to study aerospace engineering at university, requiring A*,A,A or A,A,B depending on which one I choose. I am currently getting a C in chemistry, and predicted a B. My teacher is a knowledgeable chemist, but staggeringly incompetent as a teacher and my school has said that I cannot switch teachers due to timetable constraints. Any advice on how to improve my grade, what resources to use or anything else you may think is helpful. Thanks in advance

I think I have summarised pretty much everything here that helped me:

Which exam board are you with for chemistry?

OCR A, thanks for the advice!

OCR A, thanks for the advice!

MaChemGuy and Mr Murray-Green Chemistry tutorials are the best resources for OCR A.

OCR A also has a lot of official resources published giving comprehensive lists of organic reactions and tricks for exam technique that should help you avoid unnecessarily dropping marks.
