Hei Sadiya! :D

Well ... no one can give you a good idea. You must come up with it!

However, I strongly advise you to not start writing the minute you are supposed to. Take 5-10 minutes to calm yourself down and think about what subject you have been given and what your personal ideas and feelings on that matter are.

Next, draw a simple "map" that will help you guide yourself through the essay. However, don't let yourself be constricted by it. If you feel like a good idea comes along while writing, forget what you might have in your plan.

Whatever you do, do not write for more than 5 minutes on a different piece of paper other than the one you'll hand over for evaluation, you'll only lose time.

And after finishing don't read your essay more than two or three times, or else everything will start seeming wrong to you.
Use words you are familiar with and refrain from writing too long sentences.
Now, if you receive a subject you don't like or that is boring, twist it! It is called creative writing after all.

Good luck!

mayb u can use transitions in ur essay... it will have a smooth flow...

then u can use synonyms to replace the same word...
but it does not mean u have touse bombastic words..
but just use suitable n appropriate words.. that would be sufficient..

hope it helps ..
all the best !!!
