So I got only one A this term, the rest were all Bs. I know this might sound good to some people, but Im aiming for band 6s for my subjects, so this really devastated me, specially because most of them were take home tasks, so they shouldnt of been that hard.

Im just starting to doubt my abilities now.

No don't doubt yourself! I didn't do well in year 11 and managed to pick myself up in year 12, eventually getting >98 atar (all band 6's apart from 2 89's lol). I didn't get letter grades for year 11 but no doubt I would have gotten lots of B's (if we say A is 85/100 or above).
Remember that these grades are your raw marks - quite often you don't have to get a raw mark >90 to end up with a band 6.
It's good to use this time to try and get ahead in your subjects. Your profile says you're doing chemistry (I did chem), so I would say don't neglect module 4 and review it if necessary, especially if your school blitzed through it like mine did.

I guess the most extreme examples I can think of is that I got a B in Software design and dev in year 12 but got a final mark of 95. In English I got a C but got a mid band 5. So yeah A’s and B’s are not exactly a hard rule as to whether you’ll get a band 6 or not. It depends on many other things.
