    Hi

    I was stuck on Multiple choice questions on the new OCR spec
    The paper
    (http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/170861-...t-material.pdf)

    I just wanted to ask does anyone have any advice on these types of questions and how to answer them? i am struggling with them..

    One final question is the specimen paper usually harder than the actual exam in may?

    thanks for any help

    problems in which questions? to improve in them is just a matter of practice.

    The specimen paper is to give you an idea on how the real exam is going to be, I advice you not to speculate on whether it will be harder or easier. Different people will have different views on the specimen paper.

    Thanks for the reply. Its just the multiple choice questions. from 1-10 Im not to good because there is not a lot of resources for these type of questions so it is difficult to practise them, I'm trying my best and know the spec inside out, its just the way these questions are phrased.

    Just had a look at the first 2 questions. The first one requires knowledge of current expenditure by the government (knowing capital expenditure will help) the second one requires knowledge of nominal GDP and problems of measuring it. You may to consider revising those topics a bit more before attempting the full paper. You can use Edexcel and AQA past paper questions from the legacy specification (2008) to practice more as well.

    Edexcel and AQA have always asked multiple choice questions. They require the candidate to have a knowledge of all aspects of the specification. Practice by using the old papers. You can find them on my website at:http://aleveleconomicssuccess.com/old-specification and at: http://aleveleconomicssuccess.com/old-spec
