    I don't do Edexcel, but I do History A-Level!
    What I did was write the essay questions, again and again and again. After I wrote them, I went through and added what I'd missed out. Then wrote it again. Then picked a similar question but with a slightly different point of view so I could adapt the information.
    E.g.
    How successful was Wolsey's foreign policy?
    Write this twice.
    What was the important of the Treaty of London?
    Write this using the information that I learnt writing the previous question.

    TIMED CONDITIONS!!!

    (I ended up damaging a tendon in my thumb 4 days before my History exam doing this though so I wrote it with a splint...still got 95% so it must be effective!)
