Hey guys
First of all, do you think this target is reasonable, realistic and POSSIBLE?
I’m in year 12 currently doing a levels and I keep getting E’s and U’s in my economics tests and only recently just started scrapping D’s. I enjoy economics and maths a lot and I’m getting A’s in maths, but i need to get my economics up to an A by the summer so that the department can give me an A/A* prediction. What things can I do that you know are successful or might help, and do you really think I can turn my grade around in enough time?

Maybe an A if you do the right revisions and work hard and smart enough, but you would need to change the way you work in big ways because current methods arent good enough.
At this stage if I was serious I would pay for uplearn.

cgp revision guide + textbook for things you don't understand from the revision guide + past paper questions + marking your Qs with the markscheme

= grade booster

However, it takes a lot of effort, but as long as you baso learn what you don't know and learn how to answer the exam Qs you can achieve A* grades ASAP (as soon as you have completed this for all your content)

Thanks guys, admittedly I was just reading notes and hoping this would do me well enough for the exam but I think using mind maps and flash cards for content so I know everything then doing practice questions will be good - exam technique is the biggest thing holding me down atm. I hope to get there, I’ll definitely do some of the things you’ve suggested

Hey m2b - good luck! You're background is similar to many of our students - a chunk have gone from U/Es to As with us, but you're right in that you will need to put the work in. We do have exam technique videos - I'm not sure if they're on the free trial though.

You must change your studying strategy/technique and attitude towards economics.

Use the notes on Physics and Maths tutor, I would suggest highlighting them and reading through them carefully. Then use their questions by topic. I’m in your year and so I can help you with any problems or tutor you : )
