Our APT Full Resource is constructed to enable students to be formally tested at various key points throughout their study of the theme, as well as upon completion.  Hence, there are 3 ‘interim’ papers and 1 ‘end of theme’ paper, together with Mark Schemes and Example Model Answers for each Paper as follows: 

  • Paper 1 – concerns Nature of Economics (1.1 of the specification subject content).
  • Paper 2 – concerns How Markets Work (1.2 of the specification subject content).
  • Paper 3 – concerns Market Failure AND Government Intervention (1.3 and 1.4).
  • Paper 4 – concerns the entire themeMarkets and Market Failure (1.1 to 1.4).

The four question papers have been written to include questions that test as many areas listed in the specification subject content relating to Theme 1 as possible. 
The style and format of each paper is based on the sample assessment material produced by Edexcel for AS Economics A and the papers have been written by a senior examiner for multiple examination boards and experienced teacher of AS and A Level Economics.
