Just go through a textbook, write up some points, quotes and thinkers, adapt it to the question and there's your plan. Always try to link to the question regularly and try to learn some different viewpoints for any part B questions.

I don't recommend you ask people to write up a plan for you, since it would be spoon-feeding you the answers, which may not even be correct. Remember you are taking this exam to demonstrate what you have learnt this year, not what someone else has. Likewise, the questions are predictions so I'd be cautious if I were you, especially with the part B questions. Just tick off topics you're confident on and then work on your weaknesses, ask around on the forum or your teacher if you are not sure on a topic in general.

Good luck in the upcoming exam.
