yes tbh it is
just find a notepack for all topics (or use cgp book) and memorise it, and do the qs at the bottom of each page if it's the cgp book. then do at least 5 past papers per component (e.g 5 past papers for paper 1 etc...), marking each one carefully straight after you do it. learn the bullet point versions of answers you need to make from the mark schemes. it's ok to bullet point in the actual exam for long answer qs, including on experiment techniques. just make every answer as CLEAR and LOGICAL as possible and include the right KEY WORDS (which you will know from the CGP book and going through the mark schemes).

the same qs come up again and again year after year so going through many past papers is crucial.

if you're really motivated you will be able to finish the CGP book in 8 hours and do 6 past papers for one component of the GCSE in 5 hours. So should take 8 + 5x3 (=23) hours overall

good luck!

All I can recommend is good amount of sleep, some general idea of topics in the exam (even including ones you might be confident in) and revising in slow motion. I can only speak for myself, but trying to rush and cram means that the only thing I remember is "that time I rush 'n' crammed". Also, try and find as many videos and articles as you need to, as you may just need to see a topic taught from a different angle to understand it.

Yes! I went from 3s and 4s and got an 8 in my GCSE with three days of revision. Granted, I was sitting them early so I didn't have the stress of having like a dozen exams at once, but I think it's possible in a week. My holy grail was the blurt method. By the end of it I had a single page of 'trigger words', acronyms and equations to look over an hour before the exam. I used the last 10 minutes before the exam to relax
