    I used ongoing ankylosis and overall evaluation but I'm worried that because I talked about buffer stocks to have a stable price for the farmers that I won't get marks and the essay flopped... I did talk about market forces and how they wouldn't allocate resources. Am I doomed???

    i don't think you needed to talk about buffer stocks, because it wouldn't have had much relevance- the text didn't say that prices were rising too high, it only said that supply was being used for biofuels

    fot context 1, if your argument was mainly that they should intervene,- i wrote 3 pages on why they should intervene, and 1 on why they shouldn't because i thought that they should defo intervene, would you lose marks? i also evaluated fully all my points

    I did context 1 5 mark did it with ease, 8 mark was quite straight forward, 12 mark i drew supply and demand with demand going outwards and defined demand and supply, 3 points of comparison just all about the 25 marker! i wrote definition government intervention, market failure, i wrote about unequal distribution of wealth opportunity cost on the poorer people i stated that biofuels generate negative externalities, also drew a subsidy diagram as it stated in extract C that the government have provided subsidies, used 4-5 other prompts and drew buffer stocks, talked about government failure information failure unintended consequences, market mechanism and used a few other points from the extracts.... how many marks you think i will get?

    Yeah I talked about buffer stock stabilising prices which increases farmers future income and optimism. Then about the costs of storage and information failures. But I don't know if it was relevant. Will I get marks

    I put inelastic supply.
    The question had nothing to do with supply. It talked about incidence of tax being passed on, so I put unitary elasticity of demand.

    I didn't talk about any possible government intervention I just wrote about why they should and shouldn't intervene, will I still get marks for it? I'm so worried

    Is it just me or did those multiple choice questions seem a bit tougher than the ones in previous years? I usually breeze past them during mock runs but quite a few tripped me up, I think I lost more marks than I should've. I opted for the newspaper questions, had no problem at all with the first three but I didn't give myself enough time for the last question, I didn't evaluate as much as I could have or make enough arguments for government intervention so that's gonna cost me.

    Gonna predict a B which is shame really because I was banking on getting straight A's at AS in order to give myself more leeway at A2, just gonna have to manage my time better for the next exam.

    Can't be unitary, otherwise the incidence of tax is 50%, when it asked for 100% IOT

    I only wrote about that too so don't worry! The question specifically asked something along the lines of 'Evaluate the view that the government SHOULD or SHOULDN'T intervene...' it didn't state anything like evaluate the best way of intervention or policies that the government should use etc. so we should be fine


    Imagine a question asking 'Evaluate the view that humans need food and drink in order to survive', you would talk about the pro's and cons of them, but you wouldn't necessarily need to say what types of food and drink they need because the question doesn't ask that :cool:
