I had a similar problem at GCSE where apparently I was just describing the events like a story rather than analysing the impacts and consequence of the event and how it related back to the question

I'm not sure if I can give examples (since I don't know what topics you're doing for history) and I'm bad at explaining, but I hope this helps you somewhat:

Only choose evidence that is related and specific to the question; don't include irrelevant information, otherwise it'll become narrative. Always link the evidence you use back to the question. You don't need to explain what caused an event, if you need to focus on its consequences.

Make sure you also write thematically, rather than writing chronologically. You need to cover a wide range of the time period in the question though.

How you structure your sentences is also important. I find it more useful to mention events within a single sentence rather than a separate sentence.

Also, make sure you show counterarguments to the factor you're arguing for, but don't just mention it. Use evidence to show why your view is superior to the counterargument.
