    Either:
    1. Get a revision book i.e CGP.
    2. Look on youtube. for the exam paper and question number as lots of teachers explain methodology.
    3. read mark schemes.

    Sorry post#4 is more useful as i ignore the 4,6,12 thing..
    My points are relevant though you just need to find the methodology.and then practice.

    For a 4 marker, based on the type of question you would normally get, you should describe the event in slight detail also making sure to add key dates and people etc.

    For an 8 marker, which normally ask for cause and effect depending on what syllabus you are using, you need to explain in your point of view; what you think the effects were, their reliability, content etc and make sure you state WHY this happened in order to achieve full marks.

    For the 16 marker you are normally given two or three bullet points on what to include in the essay. You need to elaborate on the points and make extra points based on your own knowledge of the question adding key facts and figures where possible. As well as that you should also include an introduction and a conclusion and your conclusion should always relate back to the question in order to get all 16 marks.
