This resource consists of 19 sets of 30 multiple choice questions with supporting explanations, which test and consolidate students’ knowledge and understanding of the subject content required to be covered for the OCR A Level Economics Specification (published in 2016, for first examination in 2017).  The questions are structured to enable students to be tested at regular intervals throughout the course, ie at the end of each topic, at the end of each component, and at the very end of the course.

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.

EXTRACTS from TEST 1 are currently showing on this webpage.

The OCR A Level Economics examination for Paper 3 includes 30 multiple choice questions.  This represents close to 40% (37.5%) of the total 80 marks available for this particular paper.  Practice multiple choice questions should, therefore, form part of every OCR A Level Economics student’s revision programme.
