“I have to say the colour coded Edexcel model answers are absolutely superb, and I also used your 2023 exam papers [on due topics] you created.

We had very strong results this year, and these resources were a factor in this.”

“The exam papers on ‘due’ topics have been brilliant for the last two exam series.

Accurate, thought provoking and providing accurate guesses as to the likely content in the summer exam series.

Students have found the contemporary contexts stimulating and by covering a range of topics have helped them to be more thorough in their revision.

An incredibly useful resource, one of the most valuable items that we purchase.”

My son is generally picky about what resources he uses, and has been critical about some of the other content I shared with him. So i was delighted to see a marked change in his attitude and response when he started using your answers and was very excited about them prompting lines of thought he hadn’t previously considered.
I am ever so grateful.

These exam packs are by the far the most useful revision source I’ve used. The quality of answers and the detailed commentary makes me confident that I could achieve a high grade in A Level Economics. Just wish I found them earlier. Thanks, Peter/Ella!

I’ve just received my latest pack of model answers.  Many thanks to Peter Cramp for putting these together.

Would thoroughly recommend.  Suggested answer for every single question across all three papers AND written explanations for the multiple choice. These cover all questions on the current specification, including specimen papers. Invaluable!
