Product Information

Structure, Style and Format:

The structure, style and format of each paper is based on the sample assessment material produced by OCR for A Level Economics Paper 3, as well as the first paper sat (in June 2017) for this exam.  Therefore, each 2 hour paper carries 80 marks and contains 2 sections, as follows:

  • Section A comprises 30 multiple choice questions.  Students answer all questions.
  • Section B comprises short answer and extended response questions.  Students answer all questions.

The questions provide students with exam practice across OCR’s 4 A Level assessment objectives. In brief, these concern:

  • demonstration of knowledge and understanding (A01)
  • application of knowledge and understanding (A02)
  • analysis (A03)
  • evaluation, including the use of quantitative and qualitative evidence to support judgements (A04).

The question papers include appropriate spacing for students to write down their answers.

For questions worth 8 or more marks, which use ‘Level Descriptors’ to mark students’ answers, the 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 met: ‘Kn’ is used for knowledge and understanding, ‘Ap’ for application (to the context provided in the question), ‘An’ for analysis and ‘Ev’ for evaluation.
