What does it take to get a raw score of 40 in physics? Do you have to be at the top of the cohort and ace the exam?

No. Could be bottom of your cohort and get 114-117/130 on your exam and still get a raw 40. Depends on cohort strength, but solid sacs and the above mentioned score would most likely get you a 40+. (2017 data)

Is it really hard to do very well on the exam? Also, when you say that you could be at the bottom of the cohort, what is the lowest that your marks can be whilst still maintaining a study score of 40?

There is no set mark for 40+. We can guess what's needed on the exam based on data from past years, but you simply cannot know for SACs as it all comes down to your cohort's performance.

Say a student screws up a SAC. Can they still obtain a 40+, even if they might be at the bottom of the cohort?
