    I want an A as well. Hopefully a high A in Units 2 and 4 to balance out the disaster that was Unit 3! What's your university offer?

    I'm sure I calculated it between the time period stated in the question (1st August 2015 - 16th August 2015). The answer was +3.1%
    Yeah that's what I got

    If I can see a picture of the exam then I can be sure if it asked over the whole period or just part of it.
    I'm 100% certain it wasn't the whole period

    I did Context 2 but for the 25 mark question:

    I didn't realise what the exact demand-side policies were to reduce unemployment. So, I looked at the extract and I saw that EU countries are exporting more UK goods, and I talked about that an increase in exports will shift the AD curve outwards, then that there will not be enough employees so firms will look to increase the number of workers they have and if economic growth is sustained in this country and PED of our exports is high there will be a decrease in unemployment quickly whereas with supply-side policies, there would be a time lag.

    Then I went onto talk about supply-side policies in a separate paragraph.

    How many marks would I get for that bearing in mind it wasn't an example of demand-side policy?

    Also, what points of comparisons did people make for the 5 mark question on Context 2 because there was nothing significantly different.

    It is based on levels not marks so an unbalanced discussion is likely to be L3 (no demand side + supply side policy) assuming the question is on demand side and supply side policies

    How can the use of monetary policy be used to manage the exchange rate to meet macroeconomic objectives?
    Or something along those lines

    This was the exact question
    Evaluate the possible consequences for the performance of the UK economy of the actual rate of inflation being below the Monetary Policy Committee’s (MPC’s) target rate.
