    paragraph 1 - first point -most important point in ur opinion. Eg the amount of long term employment it made then evaluate
    paragraph 2 - second point - get a point from the extract - then evaluate
    paragraph 3 - third point - Talk about the poverty levels and how much it has helped reduce the inequality in wealth then evaluate
    conclusion - DONT SAY IN CONCLUSION START BY ANSWERING THE QUESTION

    FFS FORGOT TO SAY INCLUDE DIAGRAMS.... ALWAYS INCLUDE DIAGRAMS

    You have to evaluate if you dont you are restricted to like 12 marks i think.
    Also if you dont use the extract then you will get restricted.
    Most of the points you get is from the extract you are given
    only do 3 points as in a 25 marker you should spend 40 minutes

    Hey I have just started studying as economics (I do OCR) and already love the subject! I would love to have advice on how to answer essay questions and what the examiners are looking for (I want to be as concise as possible.) Any advice would be greatly appreciated on how to work efficiently and any mistakes to avoid! Good luck for A2!x And congrats on your A at AS- I would be over the moon!

    If you do OCR too, I would love to know about any exam board specific resources. Thanks!x

    Ok answering an essay question really easy teachers just complicate it for no reason.
    first paragraph should be defining all key words in your essay question

    second paragraph should consist of the strongest point you have. When examiners read the essay they will get bored and only remember first and last thing. So leave a good impression.

    third paragraph is your second point, get this point from the extract and elaborate on this.

    fourth is another point also get this from the extract. It is better to get points from the extract rather than your head as the extract points can be backed up.

    conclusion is not really a conclusion. Its more of a summary of how you should answer the question and deciding what the question is asking about, Make the answer a yes or no question and dont stand on the fence. Standing on the fence makes it seem youre asking a question

    Also, i mean also EVALUATE EVERY POINT AND ANSWER THE QUESTION IN EVERY PARAGRAPH

    Disappointingly low. If it was a test that counted (it was a linear exam) I would've gotten them both remarked.
    48/60 on Macro
    46/60 on Micro
    To get an A it was 41/60 on Macro and 45/60 on micro, so it's a comfortable A, and I got the highest in my school. But I was expecting more like 55/60 on Micro and 52/60 on macro. Oh well.
