I don't know what exam board you're doing but YouTube (prim rose kitten for chemistry and science guy) and also BBC bitesize should help. Good luck

1) you just gotta know the technique and method for titration, rest all based on the output
2) my suggestion for acid, basis and salts theory part is to just mug it up honestly or try to find short wordings through which you'll be able to remember at correct time
3) chemical reactions are made to mug up honestly, there was no way else for me in this situation.
and good luck mate, you got enough time still, ace it!
For the WJEC, you’ve got the question bank where you can get past paper questions specific to the topics you’ve listed.

Again for WJEC, you’ve got their blended learning modules for chem, and knowledge organisers.

Then there’s BBC Bitesize which covers pretty much everything

Best revision source is the Allery Chemistry youtube channel - check it out. Helpful revision websites: ChemRevise, Save My Exams and Physics and Maths Tutors (PMT). Good Luck!

If you have multiple papers, check what is required for each paper. For example, titrations and salt making methods are only required for my paper 2. This may reduce some of the stress and total content needed to learn for the paper. Hope this helps!

don’t waste time making flashcards. watch vids on youtube. if you have time go on pmt but prioritise memorising the content and over exam practice atp. idk if this is great but at least that’s my advice bc gcse is mainly knowing content rather than too much application

also it’s never too late to get a good grade in gcse even if it’s the night before. don’t panic you’ve got this
