I don't think there's an official thread for just Edexcel AS level Economics so i had to create one

As many of you know the Edexcel Econ A paper 1 is on the 14th May. Around about a month till then.

1) Theme 1 (Introduction to Markets and Market Failure)
2) Theme 2 (UK Economy)

How is everyone revising for them ?
What sort of revision techniques are people using ?

Structure for Paper:
Section A (Multiple choice questions and short answer questions) 20marks
Section B
- 5 marker
- 10 marker
- 6 marker
- 4 marker
-15 marker
- Extended essay 20 marker !!

My school don't do AS Exams, due to the reformed A levels, but i'm using flashcards with previous exam questions from the old specification to revise, and just going over my notes on mostly theme 2, as i find theme 1 much easier and general knowledge (except government intervention/failure). I also make mind maps on my best topics from memory to keep the idea fresh in mind. I've done past papers but there is only the specimen & 2016 /(i got 2017 for my mock last year), so not that confident about it.

The ideal 25 marker would be intervention to deal with externalities but I don't know how likely that is to come up because it has the last 2 years.

There actually was a thread, just in the Econ Exams section. I've merged yours with it.

Also, the best of luck with your exam guys! I'm sure you'll smash it
