    Yes and further, who said you could use 'on weekend' please? that might be 'at the weekend(s)' (and possibly in US English 'on the weekend(s) ) but 'on weekend' doesn't work… May 2, 2017 at 16:12

If you had reviewed your lessons at the weekend, you could pass the test now.

If you have reviewed your lessons at the weekend, you can pass the test now.

both of these are correct and the difference is how positive they are.

The first one is slightly negative, the sense of "if you had" says that you haven't done this and that means you have no hope.

but the second one is much more positive: if you have done this YOU CAN DO IT.

but you could mix it up and remove the have totally

If you revised your lessons at the weekend, you can pass the test now.
