I'm very dubious that anyone has done this before, because what would be the point? Aside from being difficult, you'd be much better learning the entire course properly from the beginning rather than cramming one or two topics before the exams. Realistically that's all you would have time for, especially assuming you have other A-levels to tend to. You would be distracting from other subjects, risking your chance of doing well in them. Not to judge your ability, but I doubt anybody has the capabilities of pulling a high grade in such a short amount of time. Is there any particular reason why you want to study Economics now, might I ask?

An A level is nominally 360 hours of "guided learning". That can be achieved in 15 days - but only if you manage to spend a full 24 hours per day studying. :wink:

Why would you even attempt this?

I may have worded this wrong, I have been doing economics as an a level already but I have a really poor memory (in the stages of getting a stm diagnosis). So, I usually cant recall even a word of what I have revised 2-3 days ago. Therefore, every time I have a test it is quite like learning all the content completely from scratch. Although I have been preparing for my exams, I tend to rely on cramming intensely a week before my tests (in hopes of actually being able to hold things in my memory). I did this for gcses and got all 9s, but a levels is much harder and I think I will struggle to revise all 3 of my subjects from the start within 2 weeks.

I think I can manage 12 hours a day every day, hopefully it will be enough.
The question is why, but if you have to then find a written answer for the most repeated questions on every topic, e.g., PED, the most repeated question is its importance to the producer or how the producer can use PED to maximise revenue (you don't have time to make your own answers), then learn those answers and you're good to go. inshallah
