Hi there, I do History GCSE too, and I'm predicted a 9, so I'll just tell you exactly what my teacher told me:

1. For the first question, evaluate the source in 2 paragraphs and include the context in those paragraphs, don't spend long on this question, only do about 2 paragraphs, no introduction needed.
2. For the second question, make sure to use the terms in the question, use the word 'significant' in your answer! Also, include provenance, so who wrote the source, why might information be subjective (biased - but don't say biased in an exam!) and make sure to include a view of what the public at the time would have thought too.
3. For the third question, make sure to actually give specific examples, and do about 4 paragraphs and then a conclusion too
4. For the fourth question, first, agree with the statement in 1 paragraph, then disagree TWICE, so 2 paragraphs, then give a conclusion.

Hope this helps, if you need anything else, pm me
