This was on the geography section, so if you're doing geography GCSE- LEARN YOUR CASE STUDIES. It's what's gonna get you the higher marks by knowing the specifics, and loads of the knowledge is based on it anyway.

assuming you have gone through all the material needed for the geography exam, go over case studies again- mindmaps, revision cards, writing out notes from memory whatever works for you. make sure you can state a few statistics/figures that will be unique to that particular case study e.g. number of deaths, costs of damage, exact dates of a particular event. these will show the examiner that you have actually learnt the case study and not just made a general one up. having said that, don't stress about knowing the exact numbers i.e. it won;t matter if you say that 2300 people died in a earthquake when the number was in fact 2314- the numbers reported for these events are never 100% accurate anyway; on one ever know the exact number. just make sure the number is realistic.
also go over some past paper questions which involve the use of case studies- the highest marks are gained through using case studies.
good luck
