    Which exam board do you use? I'd suggest going over the theory first before attempting past papers. Go through the textbook, any notes etc. and make your own notes to revise. Then, when you feel more confident, do some of the past papers and mark them harshly. This way you'll see what the examiners are really looking for to give you the marks and how you can improve. I'd suggest revising early too (but not too early). It can work - I went from an AS level D in Unit 1 to getting 95% in Unit 1 with a resit. But it sounds like you need a bit more knowledge of the theory before you attempt past papers

    Before you do past papers:

    1) Know the content
    2) Know the content
    3) Know the content

    4) Do a past paper, mark it (or get it marked), work on your weak points and then absolutely analyse and break down the mark scheme.

    The way you answer questions for Economics (AQA, anyway) follows a VERY repetitive structure, just make sure you know how to answer them.
