I need help with answering a level (and as) economics essay questions. I seem to be okay in a level maths and even economics MCQS but I simply don't know what to write for twenty and twenty five marks in economics essay questions.
What are examiners looking for (except definitions) in the essay questions and is there a sure shot way to score high marks in essay questions? I have been struggling a lot with them.

Thanks. Any help is appreciated. Do not hesitate to answer if you follow others exam boards too.

To get into the 18-25 marks region (level 4), you'll need
- sufficient analysis of arguments both for and against the topic of the question, preferably two arguments for either side, 4 in total
- for each argument, you should thoroughly analyse the argument, and give a 1 or 2 sentence evaluation, e.g. fiscal spending may depend on whether it conflicts with any other macro policies, such as monetary...
- for each argument, you should try to give one example, either a real life example or a hypothetical one, the former would be more impressive
- spend about 2-3 minutes at the end to write a really good conclusion, briefly summarising your points, making a final judgement and any other brief evaluation ideas that would help
- label your graphs well, refer to them and describe what's going on when you refer to them.

I know OP's post is quite old, but my answer should still help anyone who stumbles onto it in the future
