This resource consists of 12 sets of 20 multiple choice questions with supporting explanations, which test and consolidate students’ knowledge and understanding of the subject content required to be covered for Section 1 of the AQA AS Economics Specification (published in 2014, for first teaching from 2015), upon which the AS Paper 1 examination is based.

The questions are structured to enable students to be tested at regular intervals throughout their study of The Operation of Markets and Market Failure, ie at the end of each topic and at the very end of this section of the AS specification.

The questions are supplied as:

  • Printable Test Papers – for teachers to issue to students as formal tests to complete in class, in a set time; AND / OR
  • Interactive PowerPoint Questions – for use on a computer (and private network / intranet) – for students to complete in their own time, or during class as a group exercise.

The AQA AS Level Economics examination for Paper 1 includes 20 multiple choice questions.  This represents almost 30% (28.6%) of the total 70 marks available for this particular paper.  Therefore, practice multiple choice questions should form part of every AQA AS Level Economics student’s revision programme.

200 Multiple Choice Questions are also available for AQA AS Economics Section 2 (Paper 2).
