This may not sound helpful, but you could either read an examiners guide for the question or use your teachers comments on the essay to improve it. If this isn't possible do other exam questions and see if your teacher will mark them. The more exam practise the better you test your knowledge and learn the essay structure.

Look, 13/20 is fine. See the mistakes you made in this paper and try to see how you can really hit those high marks. Most of history is understanding the basic structure and significance of events, picking out useful statistics and then applying then with a strong and secure exam technique. Plus this is the start of year 12, you have plenty of time to improve. Also check out examiners reports for exemplar pieces and try and look through mark schemes so you can really get into the head of an examiner.
