Hello everyone, I'm a student from Pakistan who has recently self-studied Economics and achieved an A*. I have noticed many students are absolutely flummoxed by Economics and the art of writing essays. I'd like to help out by sharing my own knowledge and expertise.

I'm thinking about starting a YouTube channel where I go through my own answers and explain the rationale behind each of them. Since I have self-studied through the entire course, I believe I have a relatively firm grasp on Economic's concepts and the art of writing an essay. I intend to go through some of the papers I have done and elaborate as to why I included every single sentence I did: how it helps nudge the level of my answer up from 1 to 2, then to 3, and so on. I will explain what makes up a good Economics answer and the crucial chain of reasoning behind each of my answers.

Currently I'm studying for the SAT and working on my own college essays. I'm rather strapped for time. I do not wish to make a significant time investment into this unless I know there is demand out there for such Economics videos. So my question is, is anyone interested?

Just do a few and see what the feedback is as well as demand.
People will be more interested in exams rather than explanation of economics.
No idea what the market is for IAL or CIE compared to UK boards.

If its too much effort v reward then focus on your own studies.

I really like Economics and am considering studying it at A level (I've started doing it at A level along with Maths, Further Maths and Physics), and I see your point that the majority of the students in my class seem to have no idea what is going on, especially when it comes to responding to questions. Good idea. I would also be interested in the videos (mainly for perfecting exam technique and essay writing). Good luck .

CIE and IAL are pretty much the same thing as the local exams in UK, at least as far as Economics is concerned. I have done both UK Econ papers and IAL papers, so I can put out videos for both, explaining how to structure answers.

Yep that's what I'm thinking. I will give it a try, and if people like it, then I shall continue.

That is exactly the same combo of subjects I did, except Physics, for I chose only 3 A-Levels. I have got an A* in Math too with an A in Further Math; perhaps I can upload some videos on those two as well.

I was thinking about starting from October, but I guess I will start uploading videos within the next few days. I can surely help with those questions; in fact, data based questions are my forte. Btw unit 1 or 2, or both?

Do you have a specific question you'd like me to explain, or shall I explain one of the data based questions I've already solved myself?

And also it would be nice if you solved questions which require formulas and calculations Like consumer price index

Of course, I will tackle those first. I'm going to be uploading my first video within the next couple days.

A* Economics 1st Video

https://youtu.be/E7Iczt_aG8k

I apologize for the background noise. I recorded this through my phone's microphone, which is, well, pretty crappy. Please like, share and comment: a simple thanks is enough. Also, feel to critique and mention what you would like in the future videos.
