    Practice practice practice.

    I'd also suggest remembering particular keywords for each topic, as they are usually the marking points. One good way to get the hang of it is by answering questions in bullet points when practicing e.g. describe how temperature is regulated:
    -Heat loss centre stimulated
    -Vasodilation of arterioles near skin surface, to enable heat from blood to radiate
    -Sweat glands stimulated, so increased sweating

    ^Something like that
