    There's nothing stopping you, but to be honest, I'm not sure if it's really worth it - the only paper in Economics that's synoptic (requiring you to bring in things from everything) is Unit 4, and so personally, I'd say concentrate on nailing the Micro evaluation, and save the Macro stuff for next week!

    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE

    Remember to read the question, and put in lots of evaluation, and diagrams and definitions!!!

    Nail the easy marks, and you'll be sure to get a great grade in August!!!

    Do it well, and these won't be your retakes in a years time

    I spoke to my teacher about this, and he said don't bother doing a whole A2 diagram - I think he just said do a S&D diagram, but I can't exactly remember - to be honest though, you aren't going to lose marks for doing A2 diagram, and it may impress the examiner, so from that perspective, might as well go for it - but make sure to stay with the AS Micro, rather than A2 micro where possible!

    Thanks very much - not too sure how you'd show a monopoly with just S&D so I think I'll go for the A2 graph.

    Yeh, I think I was quite confused about that tbh - I don't think there was a specific monopoly diagram except the A2... should impress the examiner in any case

    Good luck!

    You just shift supply to the left, showing higher prices at lower o/p

    Good on the whole, I suspect grade boundaries will be a little bit lower than last year maybe.

    I'm just wondering - for the multiple choice, did any of you end of with the answer D for questions 7, 8, 9 AND 10? Or something similar - I can't remember. I was a bit surprised to end up with four in a row but I suppose Iwas confident of the answer being D at the time!

    Does anybody know roughly how many marks you can get maximum for the 25 if it asks you to write For and against but you are only able to write:
    Definitions
    P1
    Good evidence and explanation
    Good evaluation
    Link

    Very very very brief P2 ?
