    Hi Matt - check out my YouTube channel. I'm putting together revision resources for OCR economics and put three videos together for what you're asking. Let me know if there are other things I can develop to help you out.

    You need to be doing over 1 page for 10+ marks for the 15 marker.
    Wheras with the 20 marker you need 2 or more pages to really break down topics for L1-4

    Okay, do you mean 2 sides of A4 when you say a page? for some questions I'm really struggling to get 2 sides of A4 for some 15 markers...

    No, one side of A4 would be a page in this case. That's perfectly understandable as 15 markers don't require that much depth as you progress though the different marking levels, that'd be for your 20 . Also can i ask, have you got your content sorted? (still kinda working on mine )

    Ahh cheers mate! well if im honest i've always found content in economics quite logical and cramming can do wonders for me. so if im hazy on topics now, i just look them over so they're refreshed in my head. This really works for me on the day before the exam or the morning itself, as the fresher it is the more fluent I feel. try cramming and then doing a past paper in your own time to see how it goes for you

    If you can get hold of a personal tutor with experience marking OCR papers that would be the best. You can guess feedback from other students here but that may not cover things in detail compare to one to one feedback
