CAIE A LEVELS CHEMISTRY 9701

I am doing CIE Chemistry 9701, will appear for the A2 examination in this May/June 2019 series. My paper is on the 2nd of May, so any help ASAP would be highly appreciated.
My question is, Which topic(s) from AS Level Chemistry are asked/appear in A2? Meaning, which topics should I revise from my AS notes, this confuses me very much. Thanks in advance

Topics 1,3 and 4 only have ticks in AS they underpin so much else that material would still be tested although indirectly at A2 so you can't forget it.
Topic 5 - A2 builds on AS so Hess Cycles won't be directly examined as it will be Born-Haber but they go together.
Topic 6 - Assume you need all of it.
Topic 7 - Not likely to ask for an explanation in terms of Le Chatelier's principle but the rest of is underpinned by that so you can't forget it.
Topic 8 - Maxwell Botzman and collision theory wont be directly examined at A2.
Topic 9 - Not examined at A2 but underlying ideas to explain trends still needed.
Topic 10 - Specific AS reactions not tested
Topic 11 - Not examined at A2 but underlying ideas to explain trends still needed.
Topic 12 - All is A2
Topic 13 - Not examined at A2.
Topic 14 - Specific AS functional groups not directly tested at A2 (alkanes, alkenes etc) but underlying ideas useful and reactions maybe needed for organic synthesis.
Topic 15 - Not all examined but underlying ideas useful and reactions maybe needed for organic synthesis.
Topic 16 - Not examined but underlying ideas useful and reactions maybe needed for organic synthesis.
Topic 17 - Not all examined but underlying ideas useful and reactions maybe needed for organic synthesis.
Topic 18 - Not all examined but underlying ideas useful and reactions maybe needed for organic synthesis.
Topic 19 - Not all examined but underlying ideas useful and reactions maybe needed for organic synthesis.
Topic 20 - All A2
Topic 21 - All A2
Topic 22 - All needed for A2
Topic 23 - All A2

Since A2 builds on AS you pretty much need it all!
