    Well for the first person you should talk about something important to you like when you first found a talent of yours or holding a newborn sibling for the first time or even something like your first kiss. Anything that would make the reader say 'aww'. That is the easiest way to get the readers attention and to get them to empathise with you, which would assumably get you to the higher marks as the whole point of creative writing is to engage with your audience. Start by saying what the event or thing is and a brief explanation of why it is special. Then you can go on to explain why it is special in more detail afterwards with description and by writing about what actually happened and anything else that seems necessary.

    For the third person option you should choose something that you know a lot about, or enough to be able to describe the setting and emotions easily. It may be something that has happened to you or someone you know but it is a lot easier to write from experience than to make it all up as you go along.
    Start by setting the scene and building the tension before entering any kind of drama. Ending it depends on the story; you could end it happily or sad depending on the effect you want to leave on the audience. It should generally resolve any conflict or problem in your story, although that doesn't mean it has to be happy, only finished.

    That is all I can think of for now, so good luck in your controlled assessment!
