I've got to admit I didn't revise and I got an A* at GCSE however I'm now taking it at A level. Ask for a revision checklist and then make a cue card for every small topic

You just need to learn exam technique so make sure you ask for teachers for help with that- eg. How to answer source questions and how to answer 10 mark questions differently to 4 marks. However, I realised you don't need to revise content much but you do need to know why for example a certain poster was published on a certain date and that sort of revision (dates and basic overviews) does not take long at all! So if I were you, I would make sure I know what to do for 4 mark questions (4 points), 6 mark questions (2 points with lots of detail) and 10 mark q's. With a little OWN KNOWLEDGE aswell, you are sure to succeed. History is easy

As you did for your mocks, spend a lot of time making sure that you are completely thorough with the information because I'm sitting my History GCSE now and own knowledge is SO important!! Then, in the time leading up to the actual exam, familiarise yourself with the exam technique and do the types of questions that you find hardest most to make sure you've nailed down how to incorporate own knowledge and technique!! All the best - I know how hard it is and it definitely is getting harder by the year!!
