I’m in my first year, and have been getting pretty consistent grades for the past month. But just got a really shit grade for Econ HL... does that count or am I just killing myself for one stupid grade

gonna recommend you IBID textbook by Matt McGee.. or Oxford study guide... lucid and coherent explanation for IBID... the study guide is good for condensed summary... just download them on the web... tbh econ hl is one of the easiest HL so u might not grasp the “economic-logic” yet... (1) understand the graph so u need not memorize it anymore (u just automatically remember the graph without recalling your memory)
(2) dealing with Paper1–> always follow the marking grading... for 10 pts mark start with define key terms, explain the theory briefly, draw supporting diagram if applicable (75% of the time), explain the diagram (look ibmastery article on how to explain), support with REAL LIFE examples (e.g. government implementation of subsidy in rice crops in country A...)...

for 15 marks questions —> add synthesis/evaluation at the end
short term and long term implications
OR advantages and disadvantages clearly explained

@phillipharmadi yes please, it was my paper 1 which I did awful in. My email is sonynatasha@gmail.com so if there is any economics based content or essays you have that you’d be willing to share, I would really really appreciate it!

I’ve sent it to your email. I’m really sorry for the terribly late reply.
