So Im writing Cambridge AS levels and BBBA are my predicted and I need to get to AAAA (there is no A* in AS) I do Business, Accounting, Economics and Computer Science and the two Bs are for Economics and Accounting and I need to up those grades in 1 month (i have exams in May) please help 🙏🏻
Hey can you tell me what problems you face in accounting and economics? I got A in both accounting and economics in AS but I did Edexcel IAL. Tho CIE and Edexcel IAL have somewhat similar specifications and writing patterns. My A2 exams are in May and June

Accounting it’s actually the writing part mostly I end up loosing so much in that area , the advice questions and Economics its the evaluation and sometimes I dont have facts to write

I don't know what to say about the writing questions in accounting because I usually finish the paper on time. Most of the advice/ writing questions are repetitive - even though they may seem different, examiners just twist the words and trick us into thinking that the questions are different - so there's no need to spend a lot of time thinking about the answers. You should memorise the key points of common advice questions, perhaps through the use of flashcards.

As for economics, I suggest you watch econplusdal (YouTube channel). His videos will give you evaluation ideas. If you can't come up with an evaluation then use general evaluations such as short run vs long run or saying that it depends on the PED (for microeconomics). For facts (I am assuming you meant applications), use Google or this website: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/topics. Search the topics for which you might need applications in your exams and find a suitable application. Your textbook may also have some useful applications. Memorise an application for each topic, or at least topics common in past papers.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other queries.
