    I haven't studied those subjects but what I would say is read up on the student handbook/circumulum for the course to make sure you do what is asked of you and what they are looking for in the exam. Also I would say that the chief examiner reports are good as they let you know what the top candidates did. Past papers in addition are a great tool for practicing. To achieve a top grade usually the examiner looks for high depth knowledge and also relevant issues/arguments outside of the ciriculum to show you have an interest in the subject. They like to see a bit of originality and flair. Make revision as easy as possible by learning info using methods that work in favour of your learning style. Sometimes a range of methods are beneficial so you don't get bored doing the same mundane revision techniques. Revising with a friend can be good if they are likeminded in wanting good grades them self. Good luck with your studies.
