    Yep that was the question we were talking about above. You had to give 2 reasons as to why inflation reached high levels in 2011.
    Extract 3 mentioned both reasons for this; Increased VAT and Higher Commodity Prices. This would cause cost-push inflation.
    I'm sorry but why is it wrong??? The question did not say refer to extract 3??? Extract one and 3 kind of clashed as extract one says average wages increase. The question did not specifically say use extract 3 it didn't say anything about using extracts just two possible reason why inflation was high

    For the Queston on 2 reasons why infaltion was above 2% target could you have said nominal wage increase- more consumer confidence (more income?) thus spend more? Demand Pull inflation? + It said about sluggish economy therefore investment would be low- this would push supply in in the long run thus inflation increases? Would that be ok?
    I did that two using extract one for wage increase then talked about how it may increase investment. The question didn't say you have to use extract 1 or 3 as the other person who is saying your wrong used.

    Examiners don't deduct marks.

    There should be marks available for quoting data from the graph, too.


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yeah (positive marking), but they won't be able to give full marks if we gave them a final answer which was wrong.
    So:
    1 mark for quoting original value
    1 mark for quoting the final value
    2 marks for working out % change.
    1 mark for writing the correct answer (not 2 cuz we then did an unnecessary calculation and gave our final answer from this).
    Or am I being too optimistic? (cuz normally they give 2 marks for when you are told to refer to the data)

    You have totally misinterpreted Extract One! The extract said that while wages had risen, inflation had risen by a much greater amount, causing a DECREASE in real wage value in 2011.
    In case this was still highly ambiguous, the extracts went even further by describing how there was negative GDP growth during the period and stalling consumer spending, so how you can tie this to demand-pull inflation is beyond bizarre.

    You clearly have misread the extracts because they did not "clash". Extract 3 mentioned how consumer spending would rise and the inflationary pressures from the rise in VAT and higher commodity prices would wear away in 2013. However, both extract one and the question referred to 2011.

    No, that was another question. That was B(ii) but I'm referring to A(ii).
    Oh my bad! I can't remember answering that question then :/

    lol sorry but you're saying it yourself that inflation caused the fall in wage rates which would be the answer to the other question which was the consequences of Inflation, I believe the markscheme you mentioned earlier was either June 11 or jan12 which the 2 reasons you have written were there but also if I remember correctly the question they wanted a reference to the extract whereas here they don't mention anything (not even if it's cost push or demand pull) therefore I think consumer spending and invesment are as correct as your answers and probably a lot of other possible other causes which are not mentioned in the extract ( but are correct ! ) will get marks so I think it's better to stop scaring people off that they will get nothing

    It is factually incorrect to state that there was demand-pull inflation in 2011. Even though the question did not explicitly state that you should reference the extract, the questions are based around the extracts. And the extracts clearly stated the presence of cost-push inflation while rejecting any presence of demand-pull inflation in 2011. I don't understand how much clearer it can get.

    Also, I am not basing my answers around a previous markscheme, I'm basing them on what was being insinuated by the extracts which the questions themselves had been formulated around.
    I don't understand your statement of "lol sorry but you're saying it yourself..." because what you state only further reinforces my point.

    They were basically as follows but with different wording:
    A(i). How is CPI calculated? (6 marks)
    (ii). Why did inflation rise in 2011? (8 marks)
    (iii). What would be the impact on living standards... (12 marks)?
    B (i) Why do GDP estimates have to be regularly updated? (4 marks)
    (ii) What are the economic consequences of inflation below 2% (8 marks)
    (iii) To what extent has the Monetary Policy Committee helped secure economic recovery by the grace of God? (12 marks)

    How does a contractionary fiscal policy interfere with attaining macroeconomic objectives? (30 marks)

    Well, they should ignore the wrong answer as its not relevant, and if you've got the right answer down somewhere they'll give you credit for that.

    TBH I'm not really sure why that question was worth 6 marks.

    Unless the question specially said 'with reference to extra/figure 3' or whatever, (and it seems like it didn't) then you'll be credited for ANY causes of inflation- cost-push OR demand-pull.

    I wrote monetary policy would decrease interest rate
    then elaborate on- increase investment because oc the lower interest rate
    And so increase employment

    for aii) could you talk about low interest rates and high consumer confidence

    bi) incomes in real terms increases so redistribution of income improves and imports/exports improve more price competitive

    I think I said something about low interest rates and I think people did become more confident because people thought the worst of the recession was over in 2011 and then there was a double dip later than year or in 2012 or something...

    Should do.

    Examiners are encourage to adopt positive marking, so they credit anything relevant.

    That's why you can bullet point stuff if you're running out of time.
    ok,bear with me-here goes.

    1. i did question 1.For the very first question i defined everything perfectly and showed all my working through the percentage change.However,i did not add the extra 100 on -how many marks will i get?

    2.For the 8 marker on the economic situation which can affect the price of oil- i got it the wrong way round and analysed how a recession will cause the price of oil to rise due to suppliers suffering from a lack of productivity and extra costs whereas in a boom the price will decrease -i also applied .

    3.For the very first multiple choice question on the unit 1 paper -what was the answer?

    1) I did the exact same thing but I'm being optimistic here and going to say around 4/5. I mean adding a simple 100 isn't going to be more than 2 marks.
    3) It was D as all over options I deemed were incorrect, meaning I checked each statement to see if it was correct, it took me around 5 mins which I was annoyed about. Although I could still be wrong.
