    Heya, I'm going to put this in the Economics forum for you as you should get more responses there.

    You should also check out the forum to see if there's any other threads there which might be helpful to you!

    I'm also sitting this exam and have no idea on what might come up! I'm hoping for the essays on part B to be on MRP theory or market structures as these are what I'm best at. Definitely need to further revise poverty and essays on that

    No worries, the questions were as follows

    2a analyse using a diagram the impact of a monopsonist employer on the labour market from which it recruits
    2b discuss the extent to which govermount intervention is the best method of reducing labour market failure caused by a monopsonist employer

    3a analyse using diagrams how changes in marginal revenue product explain the quantity of labour employed

    3b discuss the extent to which demand side factors alone explain wage differentials in real world labour market

    4a analyse the main causes of poverty in the uk
    4b discuss the extent to which reforms of the tax and benefits system alone is the best method to reduce poverty in the uk

    Seeing as market structures weren't there last year, I have my fingers crossed they will feature this year. I reckon section A will probably be about labour rather than leisure, do you have any thoughts???

    I think it will be split between labour/work. Last year the topics were
    economies of scale
    unit labour costs (8 marks total)
    contestable market
