    Does anyone have any advice on how to revise effectively in this last week before the AQA micro exam? I've been trying to revise but honestly I have ignored economics for my other subjects (I know it's bad and I really regret it but nothing I can do about it now). I started making notes but they're nowhere near finished and I know that it would be a waste of my time to finish them now.

    Honestly I'm at a bit of a loss on how to approach this and revise as effectively as possible in the little time I have left. My class notes aren't great and are a bit confusing/disorganised so I can't really use them. I have flashcards I made with definitions on and I bought the tutor2u flashcards as well.

    I would really appreciate some advice! I know I need to just get on and do it but I seriously don't know where to start and am just wasting time at this point. Any advice is appreciated. TIA!

    Thank you! I have just bought those revision guides. How would you recommend learning the information? Normally I remember things better using flash cards and writing out notes from memory and the like but they don’t really work when trying to learn pages and pages of information? Thank you I really appreciate your advice!

    Not sure both of them were needed as the AS one might be contained in the A level one. I posted because I wasnt clear what stage you were at. In any event they were cheap. Whichever method suits you for retention. It doesnt go in as well if I read. maybe print a set off and use a highlighter and scribble bits out. Not sure you have time to make flash cards, but whatever method suits you and you have 4-5 days. You need to spend 2 on past papers. 24 hours in a day. Im hoping it speeds up getting through the syllabus for you.
