    what you had to fill in a box to indicate what context you chose whatttt!!
    I can't be certain, as oddly enough, I forgot it, but in the specification paper for last year at the top of the context one answer page there were two 'lozenges' (aqa, not me) of which you had to fill in one to say which you chose.
    Today I was surprised when I didn't notice one, and meant to go back and check ;'( I'm hoping they'd removed it or it wasn't vital.
    Good luck for macro!

    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.
    Thank you for remaining calm and sensible. Very much what I need right now.

    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?
    You had to show a supply shift..
    Idk demand shift might be valid too!

    yeah but like what about in the short run when the price changes and so does demand but the supply hasn't altered yet so its like a movement in the demand curve and there is over production

    Yes, tax shifts supply to the right thus moving along the demand curve increasing the price th p2 and reducing quantity to q2

    For context 2 I did my first point on tax and I managed to analyse it extensively with diagrams as well as evaluate it really well. But for my second point I managed to analyse it well but I didn't have time to do much if any evaluation and only manged a brief conclusion. Could I still realistically achieve 18 or 19 out of 25?
    werent you supposed to evaluate regualtion for this question?

    hey how prepared do you guys feel for economics tomorrow?
    I still need to go over market failure and government intervention.
    Also what topics do you guys predict? I think market failure and the topic on production/economies of scale
    (Original post by Carlaaa_)
    hmmm... I am not prepared for market failure and gov intervention but feeling confident about macro next week! I have no idea what will come up, just hoping its a nice paper haha!
    (Original post by aadil10)
    I have mine tomorrow, but I'm with Edexcel.

    I think I'm ready but I don't know much about govt failure and market failure


    Also timing is terrible. I haven't managed to complete a single practice paper in the time given. I'm about 10min over currently.
    thought this was funny check it out
