I need help on how to get an A in my AS edexcel Economics. I just want this so that i don't feel like i've disappointed my teacher. Because I wasn't allowed to do economics at the start of the year cos I got a c in maths. Cos I moved toa grammar school for sixth form, they were quite strict about the grades I had to get in order to do a subject. So my economics teacher tried his best to get the deputy head to agree for me to do economics. Therefore I don't want to disappoint him with a bad grade.

What exam board are you doing?

If it is OCR:

Make sure you learn definitions so that you don't misinterpret questions. Also make sure that you know what could come up on the 18 marker and practice structuring them.

If we get an 18 marker in class, I will write it until I get at least 15/18 preferably higher.

I got a A in AS economics.

What i did was i kept up to date with the current economic news of the uk and a developing country(any country is good) and tried to work that into my unit 2 answers. Also practice your essay writing skills on a regular basis. What i did was a mock exam a week and gave to my teacher and asked for improvements which i then acted apon. Plus read around economics and see how other people write.

And other general **** like lots of revision of the diagrams and revision in general.

Good Luck!!
