Hiya! I'm in my second year of History A-Level and it's definitely the one I have to work hardest on to get the top grades. There's this teacher on Youtube called Alan History Nerd who is really great on how to answer source questions. For essays, I'd recommend using the 'JEON' method:

J - judgement, what is the point you are making
E - evidence to back it up
O - On the other hand, counterarguments
N - Nevertheless, a mini conclusion to again support your argument

If you follow this algorithm for each paragraph it should help.

For content, I would say use Quizlet Flashcards and always refine your notes after the lesson so you can look back on them for when exams come. Nothing is worse than polishing up a bunch of history notes the week before the exam.

Hope this helps!
