Are you extra time or a different exam board?

No. I don't have any extra time and it is still edexcel. It said 9:00-11:00 on the time cards at the front of the hall and everyone had 2 hours (apart from the extra timers).

Definitely will focus on those.

Do you suggest which resources to use and which of the subjects would be crucial to me recouperating from P1 and getting a 6 or more?

You were obviously doing Edexcel IGCSE - 2x2 hour papers, both calculator. Edexcel GCSE is 3 x 1.5 hour papers, 1 non-calculator and 2 calculator.
