How to go up from merit to excellence?

Hi there, I’m new to this website so I’m not sure how to create a new question so I’m putting my question here:

What do you need in a written text essay to make it go up from merit to excellence?
I have gotten an M6 for my derived grade exam but I am struggling to get it up to excellence standard.
