I produced this booklet for my L6th tutor group to help them when writing UCAS personal statements. My tutees are primarily interested in applying for Economics, or Economics related undergraduate courses, however, there are other sample personal statements in here too such as Maths, Engineering, Drama and Experimental Psychology.
A Nando's menu style, differentiated worksheet of 4, 6 and 10 mark questions based primarily on extract 2 material for the Global Economy paper. This worksheet focuses on the supply side policy angle of extract 2
This is a selection of potential 9 mark questions "with the help of a diagram, explain..." on the topic of economic policies. This has been divided into demand side policies of fiscal and monetary, as well as supply side policies.

The resource includes notes on British econmic history in the 20t century, as well as videos to support unerstanding of the key issues in Britain in the 21st century (2008 financial crisis, Austeristy, and Brexit)
The resource comes with extension tasks in the form of university lectures on British economic history.
Students would then apply their skills and focus on economic history on a country of their choice
A 25 mark exemplar essay for the AQA Economics syllabus for Year 2, Macroeconomics. Students would not be expected to write this much of course, but I tried to cover a range of ideas, so that they can steal the bits they can relate to the most based on their own understanding, and so they can see lots of different points of analysis in terms of breadth of ideas.
One of the AfL sheets our department use. It can be completed by students and/or staff. Tick boxes relate to the main exam board examination skills students need to demonstrate. There is then space for an overall evaluation of their skills, as well as a target box. Students and staff also circle perceived effort and presentation by circling boxes at the top.
Students reflect on their confidence/ability to draw the Macro diagrams needed for the new AQA A-Level Economics specification.
I would get my students in groups to come up with as many diagrams as possible themselves, and then issue them this afterwards as an aid memoire.
One of our 2 departmental AfL sheets. Students and/or staff can complete this together to focus on what went well, and areas for development.
Students and staff also circle at the top their perceived presentation and effort scores too.
