    I keep getting really low marks in my essays (like 13/25 which is not good at all) and my teacher said it’s because of my analysis. I’ve tried to do detailed chain of analysis but i keep getting them wrong.

    Below is an attempt at a paragraph i just did, can someone please read it and give me feedback on what my problem is? And also any other general help with econ revision will be appreciated!

    I didn't take economics at GCSE as my school didn't offer it.

    The question is ''analyse the factors that determine the elasticity of demand for labour'' and it's out of 25 marks

    try and get in a "however" at the end i.e. stating what factors must take place in order for the statement to be true. this gets you evaluative marks

    also always refer to diagrams and describe e.g. how p increases rom p to p1 and d decreases from d to d1 or whatever and talk of the shift in the curve. this gets you analytical marks
