How do I achieve a first?
Is it down to how much research I do and comparing other historians views?
Is it me stating my view and bringing up historians to back my claims?
Is it just having a balanced case with my own view in the conclusion?
What’s worked best for you?
Any tips or experience will be greatly appreciated!

Hey, I'm not really qualified to answer your question on achieving a first. However, I do believe that you need to do all three questions at once if you want to achieve a first. Like i said, I can't really tell you what you should do because, I'm not a uni student. But, I am currently doing an A level in history I do have some experience in that aspect of writing essays since I've been doing that for 8 years now. I think that when you are studying a historians argument, you need to research other alternative views to which you can use in backing up your claim. Whether you agree or disagree with the question. Then you should balance this by having additional knowledge within your own interpretation to help you with making a conclusion. Doing this might not guarantee you a first, but it will help you gain marks either in your exam, or your coursework.
