    Hi, I've got Macro econ exam in about 2 weeks, I've pretty much almost finished Micro but I was quite decent at it so it wasn't too much of a struggle this week (still have to finish it off and do past papers as the exam is on the 16th) but I have only just started Macro revision while revising Business, So I'm just wondering what would be the best way to get through it, I'm personally thinking watching Youtube videos and noting and then attempting around 4-5 past papers nearer to the Exam.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Best way to revise depends on you. If your plan worked for Micro (videos and papers) then you may want to do the same with macro. I would suggest concentrating more on papers assuming you have a good understanding of the content.

    I'm doing A2 econ now, and I personally think that for a subject like economics, the best way for me to revise is mainly just focusing on past papers. Last year I faffed about with notes and videos and didn't find it useful, so this week ill do a couple of past papers, give them to my teacher and take in their feedback to improve for next time

    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.
