    Well, how do you normally revise for exams? I'd say that two weeks, if used well, is plenty of time to prepare for a high school exam. Take a few days going through your notes, or textbook, making notes of the important formulae and concepts, then spend the rest of your time attempting problems. Try and get hold of some of the past exams as these problems will be useful to give you an idea of the questions to expect.

    Definitely try the Past exam papers. It'll give you an idea of what areas you need to improve on, and will be great practice.

    what do u think about make something like schema of main formulas, to make bonds between variables, and just learn a short theory of this formulas and those variables?

    That should certainly help you pass the exam but it won't help your understanding of the subject. I have done that before and in the end its a bit self defeating if you just pass the exam but have no detailed knowledge. If you have time try and go a bit more in depth than just memorising formulas.

    Id suggest breezing through all of the chapters you covered quickly and checking out what you know. If you find something that you don't remember, mark it, and then review it after. I've found that even just reading through the information once, helps a lot. Good Luck!
