HELP Please- Did a mock earlier AQA Economics and ran out of time on my final 25 marker. Couldn't do a conclusion. Will I be capped at 20/25 marks even if everything else was very good?

I don't know if it's the same for all subjects, but certainly for humanities subjects e.g. Philosophy and History, you are capped at a certain amount of marks for missing out a conclusion. So I would say the same would be applicable across all essay based subjects as an essay without a conclusion lacks a cogent argument, which won't gain as many marks.

So for a 25 mark essay, I will probably have been capped at around 20?

In philosophy, my 15 mark essay was capped at 10. I think you're basically capped at level 3 which is usually a B or maybe an A if the rest of your essay is literally perfect.
