    When I started started learning Economics at Sixth Form I was told I was “not an economist” and was predicted to fail.


    I couldn’t get anything right …. Then I joined TSR :cool:

    Over the past few years, TSR economists have given me great advice to even the most stupid questions I asked.

    They didn't even mind when I used the fat controller emoji!

    Spoiler:

    :fatcontroller:


    In return, I decided to take a gap year and spent 7 months after my A-level exams building a new website, designed specifically for A-level economists:

    http://www.petragrade.com

    The website server is powered by wind turbines in Denmark so if the website doesn't respond straight away, try refreshing the page a few times and it should work!

    If you find any errors please let me know or if you have any ideas for the website I would be happy to hear them.


    All there is left to say is...

    Do you think that you could put it all into one downloadable PDF?

    Thats a great idea!

    I initially planned to put a download button on each page so each note could be downloaded individually.

    Do you think I should have one big download button or a download button for each page?

    I think both, as some people will want notes on everything and others just on one topic!

    Thanks a lot my friend

    I wrote the notes straight into the website (a long and arduous task )

    Are there any improvement you think could be made to the website?

    Well for me the website is on the left of my screen the right is pretty empty. So I would center it or put something else on the right. Maybe links to other resources, or even more diagrams. You learn econ best through diagrams. Or some sample questions with answers.

    Fantastic.

    I might recommend adding in a 'Other Resources' page for things like tutor2u, Youtube users like econplusdal and pajholden, but that choice is completely upto you.

    Awesome resource, will be recommending to others in my set!

    Also maybe add economic data of the UK of like the last 20 years or so, especially before during and after the recession (as exam questions are likely to revolve around this time).

    China, US and Brazil are also good countries. Japan are currently in a recession and Greece and Spain are very weak at the moment, so things like that would be useful.

    This is flipping fantastic. Studying Economics at Uni now myself. Did it at A-level and this looks like a great website even though I did OCR.
