Go through the mark scheme with a fine tooth comb and check you’ve covered everything, and get a teacher to pre-mark it and give feedback then refine it

Be really meticulous with your research, make sure that you have a LOT of sources (I’d say at least 30!) and a nice detailed source evaluation for the end of your bibliography. Also, over-do all the forms... it sucks, but complete epf2b if you haven’t managed to stick to your plan. I wrote pages and pages of detailed evaluation for each form which was super boring but it meant that I definitely ticked every box and got every mark possible. Be really annoying and get people to read your essay and help you with it, especially your tutor or supervisor! I asked two seperate friends to proofread my essay, oops. Make sure your presentation is detailed and very evaluative about your process, but also include interesting information about your project and conclusions and include a liiiiittle bit of audience participation like asking them a question! Make a handout and speaking notes so that you can have good evidence of your presentation (these are all the things I wish I had done with my presentation.. oops). Basically, over-do EVERYTHING and show your growth and personality, especially in your forms!! (eg. I found this helpful because ... I thought that I already knew how to do this but I learned that it is a lot more complicated ... etc) AND! The most important thing is that your project is about something you care about that you find really interesting so you know you can sustain your interest. Be super thorough, draft and re-draft until you’re happy with it and don’t be afraid to ask for help!
