    hey guys also doing both exams this summer

    I personally find f581 a lot easier to understand especially after doing past papers etc

    For f582 I've been making sure I actually understand my notes not just writing them down and learning them. It takes time but it is worth it! I've done the first 2 units of it and only 1 more to go and am surprisingly enjoying revising haha!

    Yeah same! really worrying though, got my econ f582 mock next week and its the Jan 13 paper, I know the essay question but everything else is unknown, oh well just gotta keep my fingers crossed that I do well (Mocks are usually a good indicator of progress, e.g. I got 46/60 in my first econ1 mock which was a low A and in the exam I got a low A)
    Hey what is the jan 2013 essay question? Good luck! You'll be fine!

    Ah I want the same! I know from F581 that I need to be less vague and that you ALWAYS get marks for commenting on time period/ how big is the cut/ change? using evaluative marks as well. Ideally I'd like 96ums but I doubt that would be possible (would need the 96 to break the 90ums average for Cambridge, just fingers crossed both of us get A and upwards )

    Enhancetuition is good for tips on the 18 markers
    http://www.youtube.com/user/EnhanceTuition?feature=
    other than that, i suggest practising all the pastpapers, and then looking and the mark schemes and examiners report to see where you are losing the marks. for most people, it tends to be the comment questions because they forget to evaluate
    thank you

    how doable is it to mark the 18 markers yoruself as i am sitting the exam independantly and cant contact any teachers?

    I guess if you use the mark scheme accurately and give yourself a fair mark then its ok. But teachers are better as they seem to know what they're doing. Or you could upload it on to here / email it to enhance tuition to see what others would think youd get ?
    Im not allowed to contact my teachers Ok that osunds good! Thank you for the help

    I'm getting mine back on monday, but i know i've done most of the questions wrong. and i wrote very little on the 18 marker so dont think ive done too well
    Yeah F582 isn't as straight forward as F581 that's for sure, though its only a mock and there's still some weeks to learn from our mistakes so it should turn out fine. Good luck regardless though . The Jan 13 one was really tough for me to expand and evaluate on, a decrease in aggregate supply seemed foreign to me

    F582 really isn't that difficult , a lot of it is just getting used to exam technique - once you have that nailed you'll find that D turns into an A
