Generally speaking. Be concise and get to the point - there is little to gain from waffling in an economics essay.

- Spend 5 minutes or so planning a consistent structure so you can get your argument across! Spending time to plan will save you time later in the essay!
- Start with a short introduction or definition (if applicable).
- Put your arguments forward in order of importance.
- Before evaluating and discussing the implications you should really ask why. If it is a policy question, why would the government want to do that? etc
- Use diagrams when applicable. When diagrams are used, clearly label them and make them reference to them in the text. There is no gain from drawing a diagram if you do not make reference to it. Remember that a diagram can speak many words so use them wisely!
- Try to bring in wider economic discussion when relevant but keep this to the point. For instance, does the question relate to anything which has happened in recent times. You might be able to bring in discussion of articles from the economist or FT etc. (if known)



Doing little things right can pick up easy marks. If you have any essays that you've got typed up, feel free to send them over and I'll try give some feedback!

Hmm I would say the same advice applies to Macro. The essays will follow pretty much the same structure.


20/25 is a good score. You will probably only need to adjust a few little things to get those extra marks. If you have the time, try and discuss it with your teacher - they should be able to exactly identify what you need to do!
