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!

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!
