    So I'm preparing for marco-economics unit 4 exam coming up in june.
    Throughout the year, I've typed up all my essays/questions on my computer. Now when i get down to practicing writing my essays on paper I'm completely blank and I have no idea what to write, but as soon as I'm on my laptop I'm fine.
    It's really stressing me out as I'll have to write everything out by hand during the exam.

    Anyone else ever experienced this before as I can't find anyone who has (everyone else seems to hate typing up essays and prefers writing them by hand)

    I prefer writing by hand, I have more of a flow to my writing whereas on the laptop I am constructing sentences almost word by word...

    Plan out what you are going to say before you start writing, that will help you come up with ideas and make your work link better. You should practise hand writing so the essay isn't a shock.

    I can totally relate to you.
    I did my history mock a few days ago, and I literally could not write.

    I think you should still have like one or two weeks until exams, just try and get used to writing everything on paper instead.
    It'll take a bit of getting used to
    But if you write a plan before you need to write your essay or something along the lines of that
    You then know what exactly you want to say, and therefore it'll make writing on paper easier
