I think intermolecular forces and organic may come.

I’ve got psychology the day before and I’ve been focusing on that so now im freaking out. I have my notes done so do you think I’ll be able to memorise everything in 1 day? And doing questions would that be enough?
If you resit in summer instead of autumn for the first time do you hav to pay for your exams?

yes! you have to pay depending on how much the centre/school is telling you to pay no matter when you are sitting your exam

tbh- you need to start doing questions right away - Memorise your notes whilst you do their relevant questions. The more questions you do the better. I have 2020 If you would like them
and I think it depends on how u feel knowing the content - to decide whether it would be enough.
What grade will you be trying to achieve?
also Good luck with psychology!!
