    My advice is to do a load of past papers, mark them and then highlight the bits you don't know, revise them, then redo the papers until you can get them all right

    Learn the case studies and facts.
    Learn to improve timing if you struggle with that
    Learn a general structure for each command word e.g. Evaluate- Positive point 1, Negative point 1, positive point 2, negative point 2

    That's about it, i recommend doing cue cards for geo, especially to help learn case studies summarised and off by heart

    Ohhh right, but you need to know them all off by heart
    Cos most of the 9 markers require own knowledge to get 6+
