    Are the exam questions predictable for economics?
    Or do you have to think a lot about the answers?
    Do you just memorize the content and just recall it in the exam once you know which topic is being asked about?
    Out of 10, 10 being the hardest, what rating would you give?
    Is it easy to get an A?

    It's pretty much the opposite of just remembering content and using it in exam, the whole exam is pretty much application of the knowledge.

    Agree with the guy above. It's hard and you must know why everything is the way it is, not just knowing that it is. You'll need to apply one economic rule to multiple studies.

    Not memorize.

    Although Economic papers have mark schemes, the answers you can come up with are countless as long as you have evidence with the relevant economic theory to back it up.

    The knowledge that you learn, a lot of it won't even be used. You'll learn really generic stuff and then have to apply it to questions. For example, I did OCR and you learn about demand and supply and apply this knowledge to graphs ect

    It's hard, but wouldn't say very hard. In comparison to say Business Studies, it was very hard, but in comparison to Physics, it was easy.

    Fairly yeah, they tend to use key economic principles that have been in the media at the time of writing, such as globalisation or fair trade and stuff.
