Sadly yesterday was a bad day for me, a U in both economics units at AS :mad:

I somehow came out of the exam all those months ago feeling really confident that i had written all the correct content and whatever. My main problem all year has been trying to get the order of my answers right using

KNOWLEDGE
APPLICATION
ANALYSIS
EVALUATION

and i just can't seem to grasp this skill. Can anyone please give me tips on how to write the correct way in the exam to get the marks so when i try again next year i don't do as bad, i would really appreciate it, thanks

Edit: the board for the exam was Edexcel

Wider reading. Following the news and having up to date examples of current economic related events is key to obtaining top marks. However, a U suggests a lack of understanding of key concepts rather than a lack of technique. If I were you I'd start youtubing some of the topics as there are plenty of online teaching videos. Paj Holden and Econplusdal but to name a few. Good luck.

Following on from what Paul said here's a thread I devised to assist Economics students.

This is for AQA exam board, although has all the same processes with regards to your Analysis/Evaluation/Application etc..

I know, I want to request my A2 paper back though. I'm not sure how I did so badly.
