How to write essays for Edexcel A-level Economics
In this post I outline the key requirements for each section (mainly B and C) in papers 1 and 2 for Edexcel A-level Economics A. This is the advice I give to my tuition students to help them achieve improved grades.
From years as an economics tutor and from reading through the examiner’s reports, I have picked up students’ typical mistakes and good general approaches for A-level Economics students.
For an online course on economics exam technique, check out this link here:
For sample answers to 25 mark questions, check out the link below:
Here the total marks – 25
So ideal timing – ideally you would get this section done the quickest, for example around 15 minutes or even quicker.
Note there is no need to say much about the structure here. It is important to be succinct with short answer questions.
Also with questions asking to draw a graph, make sure to label axes, lines and equilibria correctly.
Now this section requires the knowledge, application and analysis (KAA) skills as well as the evaluation skills.
Total marks – 50. Note this is half the marks of the paper for papers 1 and 2.
Here the ideal timing – 60-70 minutes. Note you may want to spend some time reading here.
Below, this table shows the mark allocation for each question.
To summarise, the more marks allocated to analysis or evaluation, the more you need to write. You should remember this table when doing exam questions.
Breakdown of Section B by question
First the 5 mark question. Answer the question quickly and use the extract to support your answer. Keep it succinct, at most an extended paragraph. No evaluation required.
Next the 8 mark question. Here 6 marks for KAA, 2 for evaluation. A good general structure is 2 KAA paragraphs and 2 short evaluative comments (or 1 evaluative comment well developed). See page 24-25 of this examiner’s report for a good example, though the evaluation could be even shorter as the examiner’s report notes: here .
Now for the 10 mark question, 6 marks for KAA, 4 for evaluation. The difference between the 8 and the 10 mark question is the extra marks for evaluation. Again 2 KAA paragraphs but now 2 developed evaluative comments.
For the 12 mark question, 8 marks are for KAA and 4 for evaluation. For the 12 mark question, we need 2 more detailed KAA paragraphs, ideally one where a diagram is being used and explained, and 2 developed evaluative comments. To find a response that received full marks, see pages 27 to 28 on the examiner’s report here .
Finally for the 15 mark question, there are 9 marks for KAA, 6 for evaluation. For this we need 2 KAA paragraphs, ideally with at least one diagram where possible. Note these explanations should be deep with more than one chain of analysis per paragraph. The two evaluation paragraphs should be well explained.
Typical Mistakes in Section B
From students essays I have observed, typical mistakes in section B include:
- Often overwriting;
- Specifically spending too much time on 8 and 10 mark questions. This is often to the detriment of 12, 15 mark questions and the 25 mark question in section C;
- Conversely leaving parts or whole questions blank due to not understanding the question or time constraints;
- Also missing one or more of the criteria – application, analysis or evaluation.
Section C – 25 Mark Essay
Finally for the section C essay, total marks – 25
Here the ideal timing – 35-40 minutes.
So for the 25 mark essay, the mark allocation is 16 marks for KAA, 9 for evaluation.
Now regarding the structure different teachers have different recommendations on the structure of this question. The simplest way is to:
- First, have a short introduction with one/two key definitions;
- Then two extended KAA paragraphs each with multiple chains of analysis, at least one (if not two) graphs in the analysis;
- Between these KAA paragraphs, two extended evaluation paragraphs with extended chains of analysis;
- Finally there should be a conclusion that directly answers the question, justifies the answer and relates back to the context.
In addition for an example essay that scored in the top bands is on pages 56-60 in this examiner’s report here .
Any spare time you should use to make your answers more complete, filling in any gaps left. This exam is often quite tight for time. So please do practise in timed conditions.
Next, a key criterion for doing well is using examples from the real economy. Tips on how to score application marks for Edexcel Economics A-level:

Using the Model Essays
- A good way to use this guide is to take a question and write down an essay plan of what you would write for the question. Then have a look at my answer, see what is missing, consider whether you understood what the question was asking.
- Also, note how much evaluation I will add for any question which asks for Discuss, Evaluate, Assess e.t.c
- There are other points that could be made in these essays, there are often different ways that you can get full marks. But, one feature of these essays is that they don’t waste any words writing about issues not relevant to the question.
- How Long Should Essays Be? These essays are not necessarily long because I only include information relevant to answering the question. It is beneficial to learn how to write specifically to answer the question.
I have marked 1,000s of A level exam papers during the past 6 years I have worked for Edexcel. Being an examiner gives a very good idea of what is necessary to get full marks.

How to Write a Good Economics Essay (IB & JC A Level Economics)?
Governor November 28, 2019 Real World Applications 3 Comments
Many students ask “How to write a good economics essay?” This Guide to Writing an Economics Essay is applicable to both the IB economics as well as the Singapore JC/A Level H2 economics examinations.
This guide contains tips for writing economics essays and is also applicable to large-mark case study questions . Thus, it is actually also applicable to H1 Economics students.
5 Steps to Writing a Good Economics Essay (& even Large-mark Case Study Questions)
Step 1: DISSECT the Question
Make sure you analyse and fully understand the KEYWORDS and REQUIREMENTS of the question. This is a very important skill that is taught in Mr Hong’s econs tuition classes.
For example, “Best”, “Most effective” are closely related but mean different things.
Paraphrase the question to make it simpler if necessary.
Take note of the command word (eg: Explain, Discuss) as it determines the approach needed for the essay, whether two sides are needed or one side is sufficient. Below are some common examples found in economics questions:
Command Words Action Required
Account for Explain why lah!
Analyse Break it down into step-by-step explanations lor!
Assess For & Against. Consider other factors.
Compare Identify Similarities & Differences
Distinguish Point out differences
Discuss Talk cock lah! And cover both( back )sides
Describe Increasing / Decreasing? Large? Negative?
Evaluate Talk more cock! Good and Bad.
Explain Say why lah! Use examples/illustrations
Explain whether Cover both sides/possibilities & Judgment
Examine Look closely. Sure or not? How so and how not so?
Comment Give your opinion. Better cover both( back )sides!
Suggest Give possible reason
To What Extent Well…..But….Judgment
Remember to look out for the context in the question. This is usually given in the form of a country (eg: Singapore). The examples in your essay must be tailored to this particular context (for example, do not suggest interest rate policy for Singapore). If no context is given, any example can be used.
Keep in mind the question throughout the essay and remember to always answer the question. Don’t go off-point!
Common Examiner’s Comment :
Not Answering Question (NAQ)
Step 2: Plan
Take some time to consider what economic framework you will use to approach the question. Scribble down your main thesis and anti-thesis points. Ensure they ANSWER THE QUESTION.
Step 3: How to write an economics essay introduction
In the introduction, include definitions of keywords in the question and spell out the economic framework you will employ for your answer as well as key definitions.
Step 4: BODY
In the body , there will be several paragraphs.
The number of points/paragraphs depends on the question. It is common to require about three main points for each 10 mark essay and about 5 for 15 mark essay questions.
Use one paragraph for each main point you are making.
However, do not be too focussed on the number of points or paragraphs. The key is to answer the question.
For each body paragraph , I use my self-devised, extended or advanced PEEL(ED) structure. Include only one main idea per paragraph.
- Point – Write your point in the first sentence so that markers will know what the paragraph will be about. The topic sentence must directly answer the question!
- Explanation – Explain what you mean
- Elaboration – Provide further analysis with clear step-by-step economic reasoning. This part may be done with examples as well as diagrams.
- Link – Link your explanations back to the Point and to answer the question.
- Exemplification – Give an example to support your reasoning. It can be statistics or real-world examples (for Case Studies, evidences from the Case must be uncovered!)
- Diagram – Draw an appropriate diagram with correct labelling and refer to it in your answer. This is crucial to show economic reasoning.
These are of course such easier said than done! Thus, students in Mr Kelvin Hong’s economics tuition classes are regularly honed to achieve such output including with tips and tricks to spark off the correct thinking.
Our resources including the Study Guides for A Level and IB economics examinations also provide a very powerful and handy reference on the depth of analysis required to score the highest marks.
Mere statements and claims. No economic rigour.
Step 5: CONCLUDING SECTION
Earn evaluation marks by making a reasoned judgement. Deliver your verdict like a Judge!
Check back on the question before you embark on this. Ensure your judgement answers the question.
So the question now is, how does a judge arrive at and deliver a verdict ?
Certainly, you should not be summarising or merely paraphrasing your main points in the conclusion. Obviously, you cannot expect more marks by saying the same thing over and over again!
Repetitive. Mere Summary.
Here are some quite common types of Concluding Sections
- Consider the relative importance of thesis and anti-thesis factors. Which factors are most important or pertinent in the given context? For example, are certain policies better fit for specific economies ?
- Consider short-term vs long-term pros and cons. Do the short-term benefits outweigh the long-term costs? Is the policy more effective in the long-term, and if so, how pressing is the problem that needs to be addressed?
- Suggest a multi-policy approach, in which each policy has strengths and weaknesses that allow them to complement each other.
However, there is no way to really memorise evaluation points as every question and context is different. Of course right?! You are tested on higher-order thinking…
There are other tips that Mr Hong’s students will receive but the key point here is that the training of the mind to think and apply economics is essential. That is where Mr Hong’s weekly IB & JC / A Level economics tuition online lessons come in and that is why students are often asked questions in class, trained to think on their feet and as Xue Min from YJC noted, Mr Hong does not just spoon-feeds the students but mentors them in their thinking to arrive at the answers.
In your essay, write in simple and clear sentences. Everything you write should be value adding. You do not have to spend time showing off vocabulary as no extra points are awarded for language. Focus on economic reasoning. Use succinct and effective examples which support the point you are trying to make and accurate diagrammatic analyses.

Unemployment Within the Economics
Most of the socio-economic studies indicated that unemployment within the economics of crime studies is positively related to crime. Committing crime without failing while unemployed has a higher reward (Burdett et al, 2004). Unemployment shows lack of opportunity for participation in the labour market and the acquisition of legitimate earnings (Freeman, 1999). The exclusion from legitimate income opportunities raises the expected returns from crime, the economics of crime theories have confirmed. Although, most of the empirical studies show a positive […]

Positives and Negatives of Marxism
Many people believe that 'there is no place for the political doctrine of Karl Marx in 2018'. While this statement sounds sensible and reasonable, some people think that it may be a little unfair to generalize all of Marx's beliefs as being negative and absurd. Negatives of Marxism One of the downsides of Marxism is its attempt to abrogate religion. The reason it does this is because one of the key features of Marxism is to have everyone be fully […]

The Burg family publicized the company in 1961 by issuing stock on over-the-counter market (Misa & Thomas 174). Five years down the line, […]
Unemployment in the Country
An adage says "an idle hand is a devil's workshop". The enormous growth of unemployment in our society today calls for alarm, and it is expedient for all nations to figure out what leads to this great dilemma. Unemployment has messed up our society because of three major factors, such as increase in population, lack of encouragement for self-employment, and change in technology. One of the major causes of unemployment is increase in population. Increase in population is an event […]
What are Private Property Rights?
Property and prosperity rights are inseparably linked. The significance of having strongly protected and clearly defined property rights is currently widely recognized among policymakers and economists. A private property right provides people the exclusive right to utilize their resources as they see appropriate (Calandrillo, et al., 2015). That power over what belongs to them leads property users to be responsible of all the costs and benefits of employing those assets in a certain way. The process of weighing between benefits […]

When economists use the term "economic growth," they are normally referring to sustained increases that occur over a substantial time period, rather than the quarterly changes often discussed in the […]

How to pass A-level Economics
More than 39,000 students received results for the qualification this summer, according to the Joint Council for Qualifications , a 7.3 per cent increase on last year, making it one of the UK's top ten most popular A-levels.
With Economics graduates having some of the best employment prospects, earning higher salaries and finding a wide range of career opportunities, here's how to pass with flying colours.
Why choose Economics A-level?
There are many reasons to take A-level Economics, including the fact that it can open doors to a wide range of careers in business, finance, and government. It also helps you to develop transferable skills, such as how to think critically, analyse data, and solve problems.
It's also a gateway to an Economics degree, which offers some of the highest financial returns of all subjects in the UK. According to a study from the Institute for Fiscal Studies , lifetime returns for women are more than £250k for economics, law or medicine degrees, and for men, more than half a million pounds.
How challenging is Economics A-Level?
If you're genuinely interested, Economics A-Level can be broken down easily. Students will typically study a mix of microeconomics and macroeconomics topics. However, the topics covered will vary depending on the exam board and the school's curriculum.
One thing to remember is that you need excellent writing skills for success in this A-level, as essays require students to communicate and explore their ideas clearly and concisely. You also need to be able to write essays that explain economic concepts, analyse data, and draw evaluative conclusions.
What will help me do well in this subject?
To do well, you need to have a good understanding of key economic concepts to succeed. So, ensure you understand the different types of economic systems, the different market structures, and various monetary policies.
Alongside this, it's essential to go beyond your textbooks, as one of the most critical skills in this subject is applying economic theories to real-world examples.
Doing this means being able to think critically about economic issues and come up with solutions using financial data to support your arguments. This also means being able to collect and interpret data effectively.
What can help here is to ensure you work on a range of past papers and look at both the marking system for essays and structure essays to ensure you get maximum marks.
Every single essay in economics has a structure you need to adhere to. For example, for a 25-mark essay, you need an introduction with a definition and possibly a diagram, 3-point paragraphs with evaluative points and a conclusion with an evaluative point. To fine-tune this, do as many practice essays as possible and ask your teacher or tutor for detailed feedback.
What resources should I use?
There are a range of economic resources that can help you go the extra distance as a student. The Financial Times has been reporting on global business and economic news for over 100 years. It's known for its in-depth analysis and commentary on various topics, including finance, markets, technology, politics, and society. Academics and students of business and economics widely use it.
The Economist is also a valuable resource as it provides comprehensive coverage of the latest economic news and developments. It explores complex economic concepts in a clear and accessible way. The Economist's articles also present different perspectives on economic issues and discuss various economic schools of thought, such as Keynesianism, monetarism, and supply-side economics.
Also worth visiting are the National Institute of Economics and Social Research. This website discusses the research behind the economic and social forces that affect people's lives. Discover resources ranging from research publications to blogs, to media and many more.
Adam Smith Institute has a blog that comes from one of the world's leading think tanks. The blog "promotes free market ideas through research, publishing, media outreach and education".
Work with an Economics Tutor
An economics A-level tutor can be a valuable asset to any student. By providing personalised support and guidance, a tutor can help students understand concepts, apply concepts to real-world problems, help you create well-structured answers and fine-tune your analysis and viewpoint on concepts, theory and data.
Tutors and teachers will also be able to advise you on how many points you need to write for each question type. It's also worth looking at the examiner's report for Edexcel. You can find the examiner's reports here . The Edexcel examiner's reports are perfect for showing exemplary answers with student commentary. Also, for AQA, the examiner's reports are here .
