    So.... when you pick which context to answer, did you have to tick or fill in a box to say which you picked? Because I didn't see one, then forgot to check at the end. And if there was and I missed it, would they find my answers, given that I chose the second context?!
    Aaaaaarrrgghghh
    Oh god I did this too. I'm pretty sure they would mark it, would be stupid not to.

    When I open that paper next Monday, the first thing I look for.... Not getting through mcq's or reading contexts, but IS THERE A BOX. How that will help in macro I don't know but I know that'll be the first thing I do.
    I live in hope a) there wasn't one or b) they mark it anyway
    *Crosses everything.

    Context 2 : 25 markerIntro - define 2 key termsaddress the situation by mentioning cigarettes as demerit good and it creating negative externalities in consumption.lastly types of govt intervention possible to prevent over consumption in a free market.1st point : Regulation - How is it possible to use this type to reduce consumption. To what extent will it work (long run and short run), any govt failure and why. (negative externalities diagram)2nd point : Any other possible intervention i.e. price min - how to reduce consumption via this method and is it better than regulation or not and justifying your opinion. (diagram of excess supply) 3rd point : Alternative intervention i.e. Taxation - how this reduces consumption. Is it better than regulation and why? (diagram of supply shifting left) Conclusion : which is the best possible method in your opinion with each point evaluated briefly with both its pros and cons.REFERRING TO THE EXTRACTS WAS A MUST!!!

    I made the same mistake. but so many people would make our mistake that it wouldnt really matter. It would still get marked. if you are worried about this, ring aqa tomorrow and ask them...

    For the 8 marker in context 2, I think I only put the highest visitor attendance for blalala was 12398000 instead of giving an unit like 12398000 people, would any marks be deducted??? Does it matter if I didn't put "people"?

    hey, im sure ull be fine because atleast 5 people in my exam hall forgot to fill in the context circle so i dont think they wouldnt check the 2nd context if you havent done the 1st one like that would be common sense to check if the 1st context is blank

    It is fine. Do not worry. You, me and many other people have probably done this (I'm not even sure there is a box). Even though the specimen paper had a box the old spec didn't.
    However to clear things up go to this thread.

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1650700

    One of the guys called AQA and they said its fine as long as you didn't answer both contexts and its clear which answer you had chosen.

    Relax.

    For context 2 about the indirect tax in the 10 marker, did you have to draw a shift in supply or could you just show demand changing due to increase in price?
