For History, I would recommend learning the exam technique. It's very helpful so you know how to answer the questions, and how much you need to write in order to gain full marks.

I did my History mock last week, I usually struggle with History, but my exam went very well, one of the best in fact.
What I did was make a revision card for each event. On each card include the key features, causes, and consequences, and significance of an event. Also remember to add the dates of each event, and put the cards in order, so you know when things happen. (similar to a timeline)
Don't add every key feature, cause or consequence. Just choose two or three, and explain them very well. Then learn the cards. After you've learned the cards, and understood everything.
Practice questions. This could be either a past paper, or questions that you've done in class, which you may have not gained full marks on.
Do the question in exam conditions. Without looking at your notes. This will prove if you've understood the exam technique in order to answer the question, as well as being able to put your knowledge into exam questions.

Good luck.

I made revision cards on each individual subjects e.g. The reasons for appeasment. And know exactly the way to answer each question, check model answers.
