I have got an alkenes playlist on my channel

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...7qmYv5NZ0PX93S

It is for AQA ideally but there is very little difference between Edexcel and AQA on this topic.

Also see introduction to organic chemistry playlist

I'm sure there will be some good Khan Academy videos on the topics you are looking for

Hi
Sorry I was having some problems at home.

My first question is how do you identify which reaction/ mechanism is present. As in how do you know when the reaction is:
addition, elimination, substitution, oxidation, reduction, hydrolysis or polymerisation?

This comes from practice and recognition of what the concept is behind the question. If you know what a nucleophile is, an electrophile, molecular behaviour of the components, you will be able to see what type of reaction it is; in short, there is no other way to know without actually putting in the effort to learn them. For oxidation reactions, this is fairly straight forward, we know we must lose electrons, same thing with reduction. You need to know the core principles before progressing further into chemistry as a lot of the concepts build on top of the other.
