So, I'm aware that my year 11 GCSEs are 6 months away (basically half a year), but I'm just the type of person who always wants to prepare in advance - especially in History.

History is my worst subject (other than Spanish) that I'm coping with (We're currently learning about Nazi Germany having finished Medicine Through Time in year 10). I'm absolutely fine with learning and memorising the majority of the content, well enough of it to make me able to answer practice exam papers.

However... In all the mocks that we do I'm receiving Ds/Cs and I really want to improve that greatly by the time May comes around, I'd like to at least conquer a B. I've figured it's exam style/technique (AND SPECIALLY TIME ded, omgaush I always run out of timee) and basically answering the question which makes me lose marks.

So, I was wondering if anybody had any exam style/technique-answering-tips and advice related to timing?

I have the exact same problems but I've heard all you have to do is just keep practicing until you improve as you say you already know the content so just master answering the questions

Good Luck
