    Thought it was good, little worried in retrospect that I will lose a lot of marks on the 18 marker as i didn't talk about investment or transfer payment on the current account. Any ideas how many marks you could lose?

    What was the 18 marker? I smashed this exam last year so I can help in terms of telling you how correct your answers were/marks lost etc

    Loved it up until the 18 marker, wrote a page out on the current account and imports/exports etc, going really well, then had a brain fart and decided that what it was actually talking about what was a deficit caused by government spending exceeding tax revenue and wrote an essay on that instead. 18 marks down the pan, brilliant

    Comment on how beneficial for the economy, the current account moving from a defect to a surplus, would be.

    Not worded quite like that though, but those were the key elements.

    I think the paper was quite good. Hardest thing was 3 different points about the 2 sets of countries inflation rates tbh. One were generally higher and struggled to make any other points.

    18 Marker mainly talked about imports and exports but did a paragraph on profit and income. Surely they don't expect us to have analysed all 4 areas?

    I HATED that paper! I can't believe that there wasn't a single definition or graph! They're usually such easy marks to pick up!!

    lots of questions relying on the case study and knowledge of A.D. very little knowledge required overall apart from the essay. strange exam
