The first thing to do is to speak to your teacher and look through past papers so that you know exactly what the exam will involve. Jot down the key topics that you will need to revise.

For each topic, read through your notes and read through any textbooks you have for your course. Use background knowledge, your notes and trustworthy news sources to create a 'bank' of examples to back up your ideas. 

Then, using these notes, try to answer some questions from your textbook or a past paper on this topic. Feel free to flick through your books as you do this. 

A few weeks before your exam, start to do timed papers. Take a past paper and work through it without your notes in timed conditions. We can look through your papers together to see how you can improve your answers.
