i am really bad at a level econ 20 markers.

as the title states, I am really really bad at 20 markers, esp micro economics. I never know what they're asking, what diagram may be needed, and technique wise I'm not sure how to be consistent.
My AS is in less than a month and I'm really not confident! I just want an A. I do Edexcel A. Does anyone have tips, suggestions, and or model answers?


All is appreciated.
Thank you very much!

For 20 markers don't overthink the q. First you need to understand the topics to be able to attempt any so make sure your theory is correct. I would tell you to go onto You Tube and watch EconPlusDal's 20/25 marker q structure as he knows it best and that's how most ppl learn how to do them

I do Edexcel A Economics aswell and I have just finished my mocks (ik they were early). My best advice for 20 markers would also be to watch econplusdal for content and question structure. My teacher has always told me when writing 20 markers, that it should be written as KAA EV KAA EV then conclusion at the end. The Analysis should be from the diagram and information from the extract and application should include your own knowledge based on the question.

Besides that, are you applying for economics at uni?

Thank you for the advice! I just find that I tend to forget the KAA structure when I'm under pressure and just blurt out anything that comes to mind. I will make sure to work on analysis too.

No I'm not haha, I want to apply for med or neuroscience. Are you?
