Once you start doing them you realise which questions try to trick you and they do this regularly in every past papers so you get accustomed to picking out 'red herrings'.
I was able to start getting 23-24 correct in the multiple choices once I start practising them and you start to be able to do them quickly as well, so you get more time doing the essay questions.
Hope this helped pal
Any tips on how to get better at multiple choice? improving time management as some questions are extremely long. How to find the correct answer as there are always 2 answers which are extremely similar.
For example, quickly picking out a question:
An expansionary monetary policy designed to increase aggregate demand is less likely to achieve this objective if, at the same time, the government
A increases spending on defence.
B cuts the basic rate of income tax.
C increases unemployment benefits.
D reduces the budget deficit.
So my first thinking is of monetary policy. Expansionary would mean lower interest rates and higher money supply. But the question basically says which of the following, if implemented would lower AD.
Obviously A would be ruled out, since defence spending is govt spending which increases AD. B would also have to be ruled out, since cutting income tax means people have more money which means people will spend more. C will also have the same effects. People have more money, so more likely to spend. Reducing the budget deficit, aka reducing government spending will definetly reduce AD therefore D is the answer.
