Damn it I did the calculation question wrong. I just found the difference between the two firgues. Hoping for at least one mark for attempting it.

Did fairly good on the 10 marker and 25 marker.
i think thats right because index numbers are percentage increases i done the other way but im not sure

What did people get for the calculation on context 2?
I got 5.4% or something like that but it was definitely 5. Something. What did you get??

It's only a direct % increase i.e. the difference between the two years only if its from the base year to the year specified.

10. grade boundary predictions out of 70 for an A??

Tell me how you'd get 10 marks from talking about AD only? There's one point you can make about it, whereas if you talk about AS, you have an additional diagram/more content to write about.
lool you dont know what you are on about. Please stop trying to be an ***hole to people. You DO NOT need to talk about both AS and AD in the 10 marker.

Diagram of AD shifting left (4 marks)
2 definitions (2 marks)
Imports become cheaper and exports becomes expensive (2 marks)
Components of AD, exports > imports therefore AD decreases (2 marks)
Lower price level, inflation decreases. (2 marks) (making reference to the diagram)
Use a quote (application) (2 marks)
12. yep i got the same, what did everyone talk about for the context 2 10 marker

Unfortunately, I don't think they award 2 marks for definitions for the new spec.

grade boundary predictions out of 70 for an A??
It was around 58 last year and I believe this exam was much easier so me and my teacher reckon it's around 61/62 for an A in unit 2 and 63 in unit 1.

61/62 out of 70 is 88%, it can never be 88% raw marks for 80 ums.
In fact, 88% raw marks last year i.e. 66/75 would have gotten you 94 ums..
Therefore, 56/57 out of 70 is likely to be an A.
62/63 most likely 88-92 ums
16. It's out of 70, last year was out of 75. So an A will probably be in the region of 52-54.
17. What did everyone get for the MPC question about trend rate compared with annual economic growth? I was unsure but went A (which was in 2013 there was an increase in spare capacity).
18. How the hell do you lot remember the multiple choice questions? I just remember a few phrases that's it!

Yeah I know. How do people remember like every single question and like what they put for it, I don't think I can remember one🤘
