For depth studies, it's important to have lots of factual evidence such as statistics to back up your point, while with the thematic study it's more important to know how things have changed over time (like reasons for migration to Britain) with specific examples from each ket period covered in the book. With the International relations, make sure you know your critical interpretations really well, as the questions on them are worth a lot of marks. As a base you should know all the key events of the topic and when they happened and what their significance is, then build detail. Whats really useful id doing the 'key questions' that most chapters have in the textbooks as you revise, as they direct your focus on whats likely to be asked and helps develop critical thinking in regards to the info given. For IR I'd suggest doing the practise questions at the end of each sub-chapter as its the format of the exam so you'll get good practice with your exam technique, while also covering all the aspects in the subchapter, while also using the critical thinking skills you'll need in the exam. Obviously prioritise what you review in the order your exams are, I'd say for IR and the depth studies if you're really in a pinch you can cram it, but for your thematic (for me migration) you really really can't as its so long and you need to know all of it to a good standard, so make sure that you revise it properly. Also, practise a couple of source questions and make sure you know how to answer them properly, covering all the key points needed for a source q, also they're good at testing your specific knowledge.

For a 5 marker (USA) what is the message of this source: one paragraph identifying the message of the source supported w/ the purpose, content, and context, what was going on at the time? Is it critical or supportive?
For a 5 marker (USA) how useful is the source: all reasons why the source is useful, either because of who produced it or when and why it was produced, link to contextual knowledge, one paragraph.
For a 10 marker (USA), how similar are the sources: compare the sources, do they have the same purpose but diff messages? Or different purposes? Are they both critical or supportive? support w/ contextual knowledge, write abt 2 paras
For the 20 marker in the British depth study, how far do sources A,B and C convince you that this statement is correct: No intro,write a paragraph for each source focusing on how it supports/contradicts the statement, evaluation might include assessment of the provenance, content, context or other features and how this makes it convincing evidence. A conclusion is needed which reaches a judgement.
