    Start writing answers. With practice you can use little little things in your life to your great advantage in answers. You don’t have to write any “grand” examples or anecdotes. Without practice it is difficult to apply even great examples in relevant context. A teacher used to say, “students tend to write what they know and not what the question demands.” This happens due to lack of practice and more of mugging.

    PS: Personal opinion. Please ignore if doesn’t help.
