    Can't really think about anything on the top of my head but, Just go over the marking scheme for old past papers for old tests. Also revise everything in sections. To get a higher grade remember to use lots of our own knowledge ,show it of and evaluate source questions by looking at the origin of it etc. That's all I can think of at the top of my head.

    It depends on how good you are at history GCSE, so like structuring arguments, organising information and whatnot. It shouldn't be too difficult provided you know your topic. Teachers are generally pretty lenient with it as well.
