    I don't think the mark scheme is available online yet.

    I got an A overall! Really happy with macro as I got 100 but in micro I got 74. Wanting to do economics at uni so will probably need to retake that! Looks like everyone here and even at my school did better in macro/unit 2 than micro/unit 1! Regardless, congratulations everyone!
    congrats, very good results, if you can please let me know the questions (if you remember) that came up in f581. thanks

    Unofficial mark scheme? The paper from last summer is likely to be used as a mock exam in the coming months.

    I have already completed my mocks and the paper they set us was JAN 09, unofficial mark scheme as in; questions that perhaps came up with answers of how it should be styled in the exam...?

    as far as I know there has never been an unofficial mark scheme for any economics paper since the marking is determined after the standardisation period so there is no point in anyone doing one.
    I wouldn't post the mark scheme or paper since others have not yet have their mock exams and releasing them now will make the mock exams not credible.

    It's difficult for someone to post an 'unofficial mark scheme' for subject like Economics.

    Okay fair enough, do you roughly know when the paper will be released on the OCR website? If not can you message me the paper/mark scheme?
    Thanks

    So you want help for a mock exam tomorrow? Isn't the purpose of the mock knowing your level of understanding at this stage? You need to look at the economic effects of a rise/fall of a current account deficit/surplus

    thank you very much for your opinion. the way I like to work is to go know the paper and to really concentrate on each question so it's not like a wasted attempt (that's the way my college have done it anyway!). thanks for the help x
