    Hey Guys,

    Does anyone have any good sources of revision for economics as this is my only written subject and i dont really know how to revise for it. Also I look through some examiner reports and students receive full marks even though their answers are not on the mark scheme any idea why? Finally, what do you guys think is going to come up as data response for unit 1?

    Thanks

    - Because they structure it in a sophisticated way that shows very good understanding and ability to evaluate
    - No. Make sure you revise everything, if you leave a stone unturned, then by chance your weakest areas will come up (Sods law) and you'll be retaking this exam this time next year - you dont want that.

    Pretty much what Homeboy Hotel said.
    Answers are different because there is no one definite answer to an economic problem.
    The answers on the mark-scheme is just there to guide the examiners.

    Makes notes of all the key terms, and all the diagrams you need for the course along with and explanation of each diagram, also any parts of the syllabus which to do not understand fully.

    Then when the exam grows closer you can read over these notes as opposed to having to read the whole text book. Also it is more likely that you'll remember things if you write them down a few times.

    I would also recommend doing loads of past papers and getting your teacher to mark them, then redo any of them which are below your target grade. Hope that helps
