    Hi, I've already done my History OCR ca on another question but here are some tips we were given to get an A*:
    Use lots of sources, at least 15 and FOOTNOTE THEM. You could get disqualified if you don't footnote them (plagiarism).
    Have a good introduction and conclusion stating your answer to the question. In the intro you should outline what your essay will include.
    Use paragraphs to separate the different sections e.g. economic, social, political, foreign etc.
    Don't go over the word limit!!
    Make sure your essay is in a logical order and has a direction to it.
    Keep referring back to the question and showing how your evidence supports your view.
    Hope this helps and good luck!
