How To Write A Good Ib Economics Ary
So this article will serve as a kind of extension to a previous article I wrote which you can access through this link. Planning is key and I know it’s a cliché to say this but when you fail to plan, you plan to fail. For this, we’re going to look at an example from an actual past paper (Please don’t sue me IBO if you’re reading this) This is the Microeconomics Question from the IB Economics November Past Paper: For 10 marks: So remember DEED? This is the part where you define all the theories or economic terms that you’ll be writing about. For the explanation, you’d have to get analytical and explain the theory of a government implementing an indirect tax on cigarettes. How does implementing an indirect tax help a government raise revenue and reduce the overall consumption of cigarettes? The advice I’m going to share today entirely revolves around your structure first. There will be no exception for this IB economics paper 1 tips article. This is a pretty simple structure to follow so you won’t need to worry too much. Pretty much “IB Economics Paper One For Dummies” if you know what I’m sayin’. It’s called DEED in the case of the 10 mark question and DEEDE in the case of the 15 mark question. So how would you go about answering a 10 mark question using the DEED format? Let’s start off with the easiest one (assuming you’ve done your content revision well). You could also write your example here if you wanted. So long as you’re clear, your answer flows well, and your explanation and examples are good obviously.
So in the 10 mark question above, you may choose to define what an indirect tax is and also what demerit goods are (because cigarettes are demerit goods). That’s basically what the explaining part is about.
Now, let me just say that the IB Economics Paper 1 exam is A LOT easier if you have a method for doing it. Planning is a general theme to pretty much all my articles. With this, fool proof, examiner-friendly acronym that I credit my former Economics teacher for brining to our attention. DEED basically stands for this: D – Definitions E – Explanation E – Examples D – Diagram And since you know the 15 mark question needs to include and evaluation part to it, you know the final E in DEEDE is going to be: E – Evaluation Now you’re going to want to remember this acronym for the test and format your answer entirely around that format. It’s foolproof if you’ve nailed your analytical writing.
If you’re going to do well for Econ, you DEFINITELY need to know your stuff before you walk into that exam. This is because for the 15 mark question, you need to add an evaluation.
As a result….” That’s probably not such a good example. Include your diagrams folks because it’ll make all the difference. All you gotta do is say “Please refer to part a) for the definition of an indirect tax.” Bam. You can just refer the examiner to the same definition.
You should check with your teachers about it but yeah. It can be hypothetical but you have to explain it well. You could have the best theory and explanations and still land a 6 instead of a 10. Looks like indirect tax comes up again as a possible term to define. Gives you more time to spend on everything else (by the way we’re going to get into time management after this 15 mark section don’t worry).
