    Depends which history paper. I think using the P.E.E.L (point, evidence, explain, link - to the question) method that you probably know from english is the best for the papers that are mostly knowledge based. However, if you have a question/paper on analysing sources then it's best to use C.O.R.P.S (comprehensiveness or content - what it does contain and what it leaves out, origin, reliability, purpose and source - where it comes from). Remember to argue both points of view, use your own knowledge to examine the source and write about what the source tells you compared to your own knowledge i.e. if it cross checks and is therefore reliable. Also, remember completely biased sources (Nazi propaganda for example) can still be very useful to historians e.g. showing nazi viewpoints.
    Good luck in your exams
