    Funny how this was negatively rated by 2 people, would you care to explain why? Quite clearly you need to know the content before you try a question, but knowing the content should be pretty much done for most people at this stage! Then, practice practice practice!

    Hey, you seem smart, going by your grades.

    I was wondering whether you could clear this up for me.

    I know the UK is part of the custom union (CM) and NOT part of the Eurozone, but is it part of the SEM? Also, what is the difference between the Eurozone and the SEM?

    Thank you.

    Has anybody got any good evaluative tips, and application points for the 25 markers? And I'm generally stuck on the 5 markers too, I don't always seem to get full marks...

    Econ 3 in Jan was great. The questions totally clicked with me, like a jar of nutella + a spoon. Sadly though my evaluation let me down and I only got 17/25 in both essays.

    The Single European Market is a Customs Union with a CAT (Common Ex Tariff)
    The Eurozone is a Currency Union

    Not stepping on Kelbels Toes or anything :P Just knew the answer, i also did well at AS (100ums in Macro and 85 in Micro) and have strong knowledge at A2, more than happy to help

    What effect does cost push inflation have on labour productivity and investment?
    Also in an essay why would you say that pollution is bad for economic growth and effects it has e.g. multinationals going to other countries and polluting the country what effect will this have on the economy of that country?

    Haha sorry :P
    Indeed so, however, may have messed my Micro up slightly with Context 1, hopefully not too badly!
    The higher the A in that the easier the A* is of course, prefer Micro anyway, Macro was a doddle at AS

    Pollution is a bad consequence of economic growth, yes, due to the industrial process used especially by MEDC's, a lot of noise and sound pollution created, and the use or burning of non-renewable resources causes pollution. Multinationals polluting other countries is bad because the domestic country is not suffering from any negative externalities as a result of their own gain i.e. the US set up a factory in Malaysia, and there is loads of pollution. The US will probably take all the profits from the venture back to the domestic country, and Malaysia will be left with nothing to show for it except the negative externalities of noise and sound pollution, and a big whopping factory which is probably an eye sore! You would only need a brief description of this in a whole 25 mark essay, for a few marks

    You need an A at AS, so you need to average 80 UMS, and then you need to average 90 UMS in A2 x

    At our school we do the Unit 3 and Unit 4 exams in June, Macro isn't necessarily trickier, but i get where you're coming from, particularly bringing in Globalisation and the EU I assume? I do politics and both topics come up in it so i generally find them easier.

    How did you do in your Econ 3 in Jan, the paper was a dream, would have loved it

    You need to total 320ums over the whole course and also total 180ums at A2 level, so technically you could be on a B at AS and still get the A*

    Oh right, yeah, sort of. It's just because Unit 2 and 4 are very similar, my class think. I got 100/100 UMS in Econ 3 in Jan.. I wouldn't have exactly called it a dream, much harder if you were sitting the exam on the day I think! Much easier when you're looking at past papers at home lol! Luckily for me, I was hot on Oligopoly for the data question
