For 4 mark questions we could either bullet point 4 answers to the question or pick two points and describe them slightly to get the full 4 marks. I always found it easier to do lots of 4 mark practice questions and memorise the answers because there are only so many questions they can ask you in History, and odds are you'll have done a very similar question to what they'll ask you in the exam. For 6 mark questions you need to have 2 or 3 points well explained and relevant to the question, that's all. Finally for 10 mark questions you need to make sure you argue both sides of the questions and then reach an overall conclusion. I would find 4-6 points (2 or 3 for each opposing side) and write about them, remember your contrasting connectives such as However, On the other hand and In contrast! When you've done all that you'll need to do an evaluation, picking which side you agree with. That's all the technique you need, really. Other tips for history are you must, must, must revise and to make sure you listen to your teachers all year. Exam technique is key, so practice those questions and make sure you've got your timing down! Good luck, if your asking questions this early on I'm sure you'll do great come summer.
