    Which board are u under ? I'm doing international advanced levels aka edexcel so my advice would only be based on that. IF you are the type of person who has been very diligent or not in your work throughout, 4 weeks is possible !! But everyone's different, you should know yourself better than anyone. When do your exams start?? And what did u get for your GCSE Chemistry to get a rough idea? I basically read all my notes and go through past years the first time with my notes in hand and then a second time and just before your exams a third if possible. But I learnt to write down notes next to each past year question and when you look at it just before your exam you will get a rough idea of what to cross out. This is my opinion of course it may/may not work for everyone. All the very best (: I understand you will have other subjects too but it's better to make a list every day to REALISTICALLY see how much you can do.

    With a solid grounding from GCSE chemistry, that being an A*, a-level chemistry is basically a development. As long as you have the dedication to learn all the tests/ reactions and their respective results and observations you should be fine. Organic chemistry can look daunting but once you understand the concepts you can work out answers from first principles.

    Working 5-6 Hrs per day it took me 10 weeks to cover AS & A2, AS took about 5 weeks - really not that much to learn tbh, it's all about repetition and recognizing what they are actually asking you to be able to do - There are approx 50 sections, some of these are small some of these large - I think you could cover all of it in 4/5 weeks if you really pushed it and that would mean 6-8 hours a day devoted to work and revision.

    Then again I am a pretty fast learner and the applied maths/thermodynamics is second nature to me as I come from a engineering background - it's all about your aptitude/how determined you are tbh.

    If you go through with it good luck OP!
