Structure, Style and Format:

The structure, style and format of each paper is based on the specimen assessment material produced by AQA for A Level Economics Paper 1 (published in 2014, for first teaching from 2015).  Therefore, each 2 hour paper carries 80 marks and contains 2 sections, as follows:

  • Section A carries 40 marks and comprises data response questions.  Students select one set of questions from a choice of two contexts.
  • Section B carries 40 marks and comprises essay questions.  Students select one set of two questions (essays) from a choice of three sets of two questions (essays).

The questions provide students with exam practice across AQA’s 4 A Level assessment objectives. Marks are weighted according to AQA’s requirements at A Level.

For questions carrying high marks, detailed example model answers:

  • are written in paragraphs, instead of a list of relevant points anticipated to be raised in the answer.
  • contain a range of comments which attract a mark.
  • include annotations that show where individual assessment objectives have been demonstrated: ‘Kn’ is used for knowledge, ‘Ap’ for application, ‘An’ for analysis and ‘Ev’ for evaluation.
