Basically people doing AQA Unit 4 economics will know that there's 2 sections: Business economics and Government intervention/the labour market. In the exam there's a choice of 2 contexts (5,10,25 marks) with one normally being on the first half and the second being on the latter. Then there's a choice of 3 essays (15+ 25 marks) which also has every year had at least one essay on each to do.

I'm seriously considering just revising the second part and ignoring the business economics as i personally find it a lot easier and if there's been a choice every single year surely I can be a lot more efficient and boost my grade by just focusing on the second part (with the exception to a brief look over business economics). My teacher practically said you could do this but obviously can't recommend you do as he could get in some pretty big trouble if something went wrong.

So I guess my question is how risky really is this strategy considering this is my real A levels which aren't re-takeable?

Wouldnt revise like this when you still have time and a choice to cover everything. But if you would rather test your luck with the questions feel free.

Yeah I guess it isn't ideal but my exam timetable is dreadful with 5 of my A2's in 3 days so any shortcuts would definitely come in handy haha. But I don't want to completely risk my economics A level really so it's hard to know what to do :/
