A level tests

In my a level half term test in year 12, I got:

- 46% in physics=D
- 50% in maths=C
-54% in economics= C
-56% in chemistry = C

What should I do, as I want to study physics or economics at a top university?

First of all, does your college/6th form offer Further Maths? If they do, you need it to be considered for a top uni for Econ, and definitely Physics (even more so). Secondly, for Maths just do lots and lots of practise Qs making sure you understand where you go wrong each time. Economics, make flashcards on key definitions and memorise key chains of reasoning and diagrams, and also practise essay technique/ make essay plans. Can't speak for chemistry or physics as I don't do them, but I assume lots of memorisation is necessary
