    What application did you write?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I didnt mention anything about fiscal or monetary policy... I only wrote that unemployment is decreasing, eco growth is rising and BOP condition is better as well as inflation is rising but generally the economy is recovering boosting consumer confidence etc...

    Did most people struggle with this exam a little? Seemed like a harder paper overall compared to some past ones, any idea what the grade boundaries might be?

    What happens if you're required to write 'two' points but you write more? Would they select the best two or would they just mark the first two and ignore the rest?

    I hope about 60 for an A but in reality about 62 for an A and 69/70 for 90 UMS

    I thought that it was positive marking. In other words they seek to give you marks. So, shouldn't they be reading everything and select the best two?

    It was related to the 30 marker. I guess you didn't have to use it but you could have found it easier to write about cooperation tax if you read it.

    Did you quote the data from extract 2 in the 30? I hope i will not loose marks in that how many marks do you think it was probably worth i remember it being a very small extract and was there a figure 2? Sorry my memory is really bad

    So apparently, I've been told they do select your best 2 points, and score you on them.However, you're silly to do more than 2 points, and you're just wasting time that could be spent doing other questions if you do. If they ask for 2 points, just do 2 points. Simple.

    But! I finished all my answers and had some extra time so I went back to the questions I answered weakly and added one or two points additionally.

    You know if you got the answer to the index one wrong? (Like I put 177 instead of 277) don't ask me how I'm just really stupid would you still get like maybe 1 or 2 marks? Cos it was a 6 mark question, so surely they should credit something even if it was wrong? Or no?
