I'm doing Edexcel IAL (International Advanced Level - it's this new a-level for international students that's similar to GCE, except slight differences in syllabus & they've replaced Econs 3 Section A MCQ with two 20m essays) Economics, and I want to aim for an A*. I'm sitting for Economics 3 (re-sit) and 4 this May/June. Any tips? Please help!

We have a great thread where A* students share their tips on how they did it. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=815293

I'm going to move your post into the Economics forum, too - you should get some more subject-specific advice there.

Thanks! Though I can't seem to find any study advice for an A* in Economics in that thread (though I only used the search option; didn't go through the entire 86 pages haha). I only found technical advice on how many marks are required for an A* in Economics etc.

I really want tips for Econs 4. I'd love tips for Econs 3 too but since the IAL format is different (essays in place of MCQs), I doubt I'd be able to get as much help there.
