I'm in Year 11 and I'm doing Economics GCSE (OCR). In my Y10 Mock Exams I got 8s and 9s in every subject except economics, in which I scraped a grade 5 despite getting 8s on all my previous economics tests. I tended to do well on multi-choice questions and questions that involved regurgitating facts and performing calculations, but I messed up pretty badly on the 6-mark extended writing questions. Even though I have all the knowledge down, I can't think of a proper chain of reasoning or how to approach the question properly. I've tried doing some past paper questions and looking at the mark scheme and buying a revision guide but neither of them helped me get more than 2 or 3 marks on an extended writing question. Do you guys have any suggestions?

ask you teacher for help? i know... pretty cliche but if you can and your teacher is willing - ask them to like go through the structure on 6 marker q's and what they expect...
