    Start making your own notes for each topic as soon as possible and practise your essays. Don't worry too much about the mocks - especially history ones because they are not a strong indicator of what you'll end up getting in my opinion as you'll forget everything come May anyway. Some of the people in my class got 30-50% but ended up with full marks in the actual exam...Focus on exam technique now - maybe after each topic think of a possible essay question and write it? Then learn off those essays before your GCSE exam.
