    Coming out that exam I think I did pretty well. For the budgeting question I wrote something on her having to "cut back in certain areas" to pay for her car, and the second point on the budgeting I made was that she would see an "increase under the loan repayments section" of her budget, I considered the fact that she also had student loans to repay.

    What did you guys write?

    For the first one I put the same one as yours: cutting on expenditure. For the second one I said that getting the car would mean she doesn't reject those work invitations anymore so she will work more and make more money, therefore this would increase her income in her budget(?) I think I got that second one wrong haha yours makes much more sense

    I'm really stressed out about unit 12 economics, I completed my research projects but I don't have many examples and I'm confused how to answer the 14 markers. I just feel like I don't have enough knowledge to answer any of the questions but at least we have the case studies
    Also I'm really struggling on the consequences of environmental issues and features of globalisation!!
    I'd really appreciate any help, thanks

    After reading your second point, ironically, yours made more sense. Let's hope we both get it right

    Yes I completely agree guys. That felt like a waste of revision because 1) half the theory in Managing the Economy did not come up; 2) the environmental issues/globalisation questions required NONE of my time to revise as it was all in the case study. Not to mention the questions were rather pointless....

    Ugh, there goes any chance of A* in Econ!

    What a silly test, AQA living up to its poor reputation this year once again.

    Come on, Chewing gums? What a dumb 14 marker as well. And inequality isnt even one of the main government objectives and they choose that. It was too similar to last year paper.

    The paper is called "current economic issues". Key word, current, so why tf did the EU not come up?

    Hopefully i get an A* but i doubt it.

    So relieved I'm not the only who found that exam really weird:/

    Here I go studying pollution and carbon taxes and pollution permits to get a 14 marker on chewing gum ugh!!

    I didn't know how to approach certain questions and I think I've messed up in some areas:/ really gutted as economics is one of my strong subjects and I'm planning to continue studying it for A level. Hopefully grade boundaries will be low (although they're normally quite high for this unit!!)

    107 for an A, 95 for a B (varies every year)

    to be safe, i'd say 110 for an A, 100 for a B.
    (could be lower this year? idk)

    An A is fairly straight forward but an A* is like 115-120, bloody ridiculous!
