    Just updating this thread to say that I have made a new essay for AQA titled 'Exports Rising Faster than Imports Essay'. Honestly, I feel like the question was pretty unclear, but I managed to write an essay on it nonetheless. Additionally, I am now creating facebook chats for all of the exam boards, so message me early if you want to be a part of any of them
    Are there many people in the Facebook chats? I'll join, if they are active.

    Not yet, that's why I am trying to get people to join haha. Can I ask which exam board you are on? Once I get enough people for your exam board, I will send you an invite to the chat (just send me a link to your fb in a pm).

    AQA
    Is that AS or A2? On a side note as well, do you reckon I should keep it the way it is and have separate chats for A2 and AS, or should I just combine them? Thanks, just curious to hear someone else's opinion

    A2. Combining them would be better I think, especially since all the content is mixed now, with the new linear A-levels.

    Seems sensible tbh. Having 6 chats for 3 exam boards would have been a pain hahaha.

    BTW are you in your second or first year in UCL. how is ECONS as a major so far though?

    thing is I was pretty much planning to read buss managment, but for all the reasons, im having some second thoughts on taking buss management and am considering either econs or PPE instead. in a muddle right now with my brain.

    This is a facebook group chat (i.e. real time chat) rather than just a simple facebook group. I am in my first year at UCL, and it's been going alright so far. I wouldn't be able to say whether or not you should take it over business management or not, but definitely be conscious of the fact that economics (particularly at UCL, but really at a lot of top unis as well) has a lot of maths, so unless you happen to pick econ for a uni that isn't so mathematical, be ready for a lot it.

    The essays all get automatically updated in the essay dropbox folder. I just made the recent post to bump the thread up again and show people that another essay had been done

    1. Government Intervention to control monopolies (With Diagramatic Analysis)
    2. Long run and Short Run average cost curves
    3. Normal profits, supernormal profits and losses
    4. Wage determination
    in competitive and non-competitive markets

    Those are the four topics I particularily struggle on with number 4 being the most. I will join the facebook chat later.

    We just learnt a very siimlar thing on the OCR spec. It can be quite confusing especially when AR=AC and firms still make a profit??

    At AR = AC, it's just normal profits though (i.e. profit = 0) isn't it? (unless I am thinking about a different diagram)
