    How many marks would I have got for question 2 a on CPI if I said it measured inflation on a basket of goods how it differed from rpi and it looked at how much people bought of a good over different time periods and if they bought less price level was higher. I also briefly mentioned a base year but no weights, I know I wasnt completely right but how many marks should I gain. Thanks

    Unless you're hoping for full marks in the first place :cool:

    Did you know how to do the first part?
    Not at all Never been taught it.

    I quoted data & showed some basic maths though, so must get some marks.

    I did deregulation as one and evaluated by saying that most industries in the UK are deregulated so there isn't much of a point in deregulation since it wouldn't be very effective etc. Is this a valid evaluation point?
    Hmm i'm not entirely sure, you may get it, I think it was the majority of UK markets have been privatised! You may get the benefit of the doubt though because many markets have also been deregulated...(flights etc)

    In the exam no, now I do LOL (quite pointless I guess) The best thing is even though I guessed in the exam I managed to pick up half the marks, its true we never were taught how to form an index!

    I feel like I've really messed up this exam. I did Q2, started panicking and completely forgot to define things. The living standards question really threw me, I really couldn't think anything. The monetary policy and 30 mark question were okay, since I felt they were the only questions which really allowed you to show off knowledge. :/ I feel like I've really cocked it up. I got an A in January, and I dropping it, but I really wanted an A or a B since maths based things aren't my thing at all. So upset.
    Felt like i didn't do too well either was hoping for a B but think I've dropped too many marks don't think I went Into enough detail or talked about the right thinks, also missed my equilibriums off diagrams which is annoying! Don't feel good about unit 1 I did on Monday either (never sat it in January)

    Guys can someone please answer. I did question one, but I'm worried about the 8 marker. If I spoke about how the two units of measurement were the same in one year (2004) as one point which was their lowest. And them being highest in a different year to each other with figures mentioned. Would I get 8 marks?

    I needed a 90 to pull up my Unit 1 grade. Those pesky smaller questions made sure that need was not met.

    Base index is always 100, so new index will just be the percentage difference add the base index

    for question 1 , I said the costs of the deficit of trade would be 1)it could be unsustaible and create national debt and 2)it could reduce confidence, lessening investiment and consumption while net incomes also leave. I think that's right? and for the 8 marker on oil price I said the decrease was due to recession, drop in international trade and then I said the rise was due to govs trying to recover so attempted to increase growth which increased the ad for oil? any help if im right?

    I did question 2!
    For the 30 mark question I analysed by showinig how contractionary fiscal policy has been detrimental to achieving Economic Growth and Full Employment but for my Evaluation I showed how it has been beneficial to help achieve two macroeconomic objectives; Balance of Payments equilibrium and Price Stability. I also evaluated by explaining that the magnitude of the negative multiplier effect would be significant yadda yadda yadda
