Have you thought about breaking down your ideas ?? I had the same problem as you but in secondary, before I even wrote something I would come up with ideas. With Macbeth I created a word document and wrote the quotes that I would use on the left and then a small explanation about the quote and what it meant thinking about the alternatively ( which is where you start hitting the 5/6)
Comparison is a big game changer that’s between 6/7, comparing poems or books or quotes to one another shows that you can build an argument. My English teacher was amazing he would give us the previous years question and have us plan out what we would say than actually writing it out. We would plan for like 2-3 lessons than have it written up in 3-4 lessons. Have it checked by your teacher and ask what you did well and what you could of added to make it even better.
Hope this helps

I would say plan your main points before you write this will also ensure you have a solid introduction and conclusion.
