Best sequence to deliver OCR chemistry A A2 topics

Hello, I have only taught A2 once and from sept it will be my second time. I am currently planning the over view for Y13. I wanted to ask, is it worth starting with organic chemistry (as it is a lot)inc analysis, slip in acids, bases and buffers and equilibria and then teach the rest of phyiscal chemistry e.g enthalpy, entropy, rates and inorganic; transition metals. The reason I am asking is the only year I taught A2 I followed the order of the spec (at that time F324 and F325) and I felt I was rushing organic chemistry Thank you Leyla
