    okay,
    what i did was just make sure all my content was perfect,
    and then in the 6 mark questions just spill everything you know about the topic given, i know that doesn't sound like the perfect strategy but it worked lol.
    Also make sure you read the question carefully, underlining everything you have to do so as soon as you have written about it you can kind of tick it off so that way you wont miss anything.
    The harder ones i think would be the graphs they give and expect you to write what it shows, and thats just a lot of past papers, so you can kind of guess what they expect you to write.

    Good luck
