Description

The A Level Economics revision workshop is designed to support all Year 13 A Level Economics students as they near completion of their two-year linear course.

The workshop will reinforce core A Level Economics teaching content from both Years 1 & 2 and build confidence in the assessment skills required to ensure students perform strongly in the three terminal papers.


Workshop Content: The workshop will see the delivery of five intensive large-group tuition sessions delivered by our experienced A Level Economics team;

  • Theory of the firm – delving into the detail of those market structure diagrams
  • Labour markets – marginal revenue productivity theory made easy


Session 2 – Magnificent at Macro (Subject knowledge booster)

  • The UK economy – looking over the last 10 years of the UK economy
  • Policy instruments – the effectiveness of instruments in achieving macro objectives

  • Making the most of the ‘economic toolkit’ – utilising knowledge and diagrams


Session 4 – Amazing Analysis & Excellent Evaluation (Exam technique)

  • Amazing analysis – developing an effective chain of analysis that is technically perfect
  • Excellent evaluation – explores the art of thinking critically and providing different perspectives with your arguments and judgements to gain that A/A*


Session 5 – Synoptic Success (Exam technique)
