    I don't really know anything from economics. Only probably defining definitions. What revision technique can you give me for my as exams in May?

    Start learning the content. Personally I hate reading so I watched Pajholden's youtube videos as he explains concepts really well and it's actually interesting.


    I achieved 90UMS in Unit 1 and 100UMS in Unit 2 and an A* overall in the complete A level

    pajholden is good, Econplusdal is also a Youtube Econ teacher who's very good.

    Make notes from these videos if you can. Read up from the textbook after each topic or something just to supplement your notes.

    Make sure you familiarise yourself with the mark scheme.

    In addition to this I've found that making flash cards/ key cards with important facts, definitions and economic concepts really helps.

    There is a good app called Flash Cards for iPad/iPhone which I use.
    Just going through a few cards a day can really help drill that knowledge in!

    Hope this helps

    One thing I would recommend, after you've learnt all the necessary content from textbooks/revision guides/videos, is to create a mindmap on a piece of paper . If you have learnt the content well enough, you should be able to analyse each element separately as well as see links between different elements, since the nature of Economics is such that almost all topics are linked - for example, there are obvious links between inflation and unemployment. After making a few mindmaps, you should feel a lot more confident with answering analysis questions, as questions like "analyse the effect of a higher inflation rate on the unemployment rate" should be easier to answer after you have created links between inflation and unemployment.

    Good luck!
