Tips to score in paper 1:
1. Complete past year papers at least back to 5 years from now. Repeated questions are highly possible.
2. Understand the way examiner sets questions. Questions that are being set are highly similar. They will change the question but they still want to test on the same concepts.
3. For Micro, students are required to fully understand PPC, scarcity, how demand and supply curve shift, PED, YED, XED, consumer and producer surplus, function of money.
4. For Macro, students are required to fully understand inflation, unemployment, BOP, max and min price, social benefits and social costs, how fixed and floating exchange rate work, AD and AS.
I hope these tips can help you. All the best to all the students.I am selling A-level mark scheme EXPLANATION, which is much better than the mark scheme provided online. Do whatapps/sms me at 0149110523 to get a copy.

Does anybody have any tips for writing 10 markers? Never really been sure how to do them as we haven't been taught at school and I feel as if I lost a few marks on the micro ten marker. - Any help is appreciated

Try to get in a relevant graoh and link it to the question and explain what the graph shows. Also you get the marks mainly for analysis so make sure you explain your point properly. Unlike the 25 marker you don't lose marks for not evaluating. Just make sure you explain your points in steps so it's continuous and try to get in a relevant graph and you will be fine. Also, the 10marker also doesn't require for you to quote the cases study like the 25 marker does.

any suggestions of what might come up next Monday's exam?

I'm guessing there has to be a 10 marker or 20 marker on one of the four macroeconomic objectives or something like
floating exchange rates or international competitiveness as a 20 marker.

Graph depends on what you are choosing. Basic AD/AS diagram can show inflation/economic growth

I messed it up too, I think you may get marks for the labelled axis? What did you label your axis?
I thought overall it was a harder test than the micro paper

I think it went well. Nothing "unexpected" came up. I think multiple choice questions were very generous.
