I got an A* also. If you aren't aware of Econplusdal, get on his YT! He's so popular among students that he is no longer an advantage to know of, it's more of a requirement to pass lmfao.

My essay structure depended on how easily I can flow from pros and cons of the side / the type of question. Sometimes: small intro, pro, con, pro, con, conclusion. Sometimes: small intro, pro and con of policy 1, pro and con of policy 2, then a conc which tied the two together.

It depends. But best advice is to practice essays from early on. Don't waste time fully writing them out, just write detailed essay plans

good advice but personally I never used econdal , he was a good hype man though for this live streams the day before the exams . Simply to give some tips is need to know the content in the major topics inside out , on minor topics know the overview . Practise essay writing as early as possible ( skill that develops over time ) and towards end really hone in on priority topics (one’s that come up each year E.g market structures (oilihopoes )). Econ was a blast for me tbh , didn’t ever do any work in lessons and in the end dropped 20 marks over 3 papers , work hard but have fun 😀
