    How do you guys think it went?

    Also if anyone can remember the questions I'd be very grateful - specifically for those in question 2 as I've already forgotten...

    Hi, I was a resit today as well

    If I remember correctly the exam format was like this:

    Explain 'Real GDP growth' (4)
    Assess the benefits of using HDI for measuring the standard of living within a country (12)
    Explain policies the government could use to increase the HDI score (8)
    Explain how CPI is calculated refer to weighting in your answer (6)
    Describe two factors the MPC will look at to decide whether to increase the base interest rate (8)
    Discuss how a very low rate of inflation can affect the UK economy (12)
    To what extent is monetary policy effective at controlling the rate of inflation (30)

    I thought the exam was okay, I need 88 UMS to get an A at AS so not sure if I got that

    Once you've learnt unit 4 in a great amount of detail you wonder how you didn't 100 unit 2
