You should learn how reactive elements are in relation to if not they would be extracted from their ore by reduction by carbon , or by electrolysis. Eg Iron is extracted by reduction from carbon, but aluminium is more reactive than carbon, so it is extracted by electrolysis.With regards to the periodic table, no it’s given in the exam, but learn the symbols for common metals and non metals, eg sodium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, copper etc, as you won’t waste time trying to find them. Know how to make ions from them, eg group 7 gains an electron etc.
