Ah cramming realistically will not help, but just do as much questions as you can using Physics and Maths tutor. Plus any topics you are stuck with Allery Tutors on YouTube has revision videos for all exam boards.

Chemistry questions tend to repeat so you just have to make sure you understand why an answer is...as trust me if you as many exam questions you will see that they are similar.

But you need to make sure you understand the content before anything

I've never tried cramming before but I remember hearing about a technique that supposedly works quite well if you're looking to learn whole topics in a short amount of time.

Basically, you either create a set of questions about the topic or find pre-made questions (like exam questions), and then, even if you don't know the topic at all, try and answer them closed book. Mark them, and then do the questions again, but open book, making sure they're all correct. Later on answer the questions again closed book, and you'll find that you've remembered a lot more than the first time you answered them.

Again, I've never tested this method but it's worth a shot. Good luck!

try to do as many exam questions as possible even if youre unsure of the content. then mark it in a diff coloured pen (questions ALWAYS repeat theyre so repetitive) so by the end of all these exam questions, youll have learnt sm. good luck!!!

Try to be less tensed about the issue and focus on one thing in particular. You will make it.
