    Adding wrongly is not equivalent to going blank. Going blank implies that you have no recollection of the material required to do the question.

    Clearly I had no recollection of the material required to do the question, because I had no recollection of basic maths.

    Guys don't worry about 2g, it was just a really easy question disguised as a hard question. As long as you talked about the two demad-side policies, drew a diagram and linked to the question, expect top marks

    Nope, was demand-side policies.
    Hopefully you will still get half of the marks.

    I know how you feel, by the end of the exam fatigue kicks in, and you don't always read the question properly.

    Don't worry about it - there is nothing you can do, it is a rubric error - not a knowledge error.

    It's never been more than 61 for an A, I think it'll be 55-58 for an A in theme 1 and 61 for theme 2. Remember we don't need UMS anymore because it's a new spec, just raw marks so they might even combine it into one average grade required In both papers so like an average of 60 between the 2 for an A…

    Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking. I estimated myself just scraping and A and being in that 74-78% range.

    Same, I think I got somewhere in the mid 50's for unit 1 and I think I smashed unit 2 today so if its combined and not UMS I should hopefully get an A just hope, you might get a nice examiner, you might've done better than you thought or there might be low boundaries for unit 1… I'm feeling very optimistic after today and I hope you are you too!!

    Pretty sure that if u expand on fiscal policy enough and evaluate you're still capable of getting all the marks, I wrote about response in gov spending benefits , borrowing to spend , fall in income tax , fall in corporation tax

    How do you know so much about economics? Do you read a lot of The Economist or The Financial Times? You seem to have so much information...

    Yeah so am I. However the main problem for me is my terrible handwriting. It starts of ugly and then gets even uglier. So I just hope the examiner can read what I wrote... Otherwise I'm screwed 😅

    Yeahh, knowledge and application marks cap tho, also there's never been a mark scheme where they say to not givr marks if a certain other aspect isnt drawn on. But monetary policy is relevant ofc. Abit like unit 1 on the gov intervention, it was so broad with the help to buy scheme, the subsidies and max pricing so u can say whatever as long as it's detailrd
