    It was 75 Bn


    3% added to whatever the question said the GDP was in 2010

    Divide the whole number by 100 and times by 103.
    itt increased from or decreased or something from 3.6% to 3.0% which is a change of 0.6% thus in 2010 it was 25 billion, therefore u do 0.6% of 25 billion, thats what my teacher said when i asked her!

    Sorry but I'm afraid she's wrong.

    The annual percentage change ON THE PREVIOUS YEAR was 3.0% in 2011. Therefore, the answer is (2500 x 1.03) - 2500 = 75bn. I personally put 2575 because it was worded weirdly... Hopefully will get some marks!

    This exam was so good compared to Micro! The inflation and interest rate question was amazing and there was no weird context questions on water = good exam

    Anyone else get 2.43m in Context 1 for the 5 marker?

    3.0% was how much it changed by. 0.6% is how much the change changed by... which is way too complicated for a handful of marks

    Standard of living assessment should have been things such as life expectancy at birth, GDP per capita etc, education, gender equality etc.

    We've both answered completely different thngs since yours was factors affecting assessing standards of living and mine was the actual assessing the standards of living

    Only one of us can be right What did everyone else right for question 2 in section A?


    So my answer was right then?
    Im pretty sure I am correct, but we could both be tbh. Population growth definitely has to be considered or a economy with a larger gdp would have a higher standard of living.
    I think you are talking about economic development more

    Context one on Unemployment and Question 1 on inflation and the interest rate... they weren't too bad, I was very unprepared so was thankful it was something I could answer okay-ish you?
    Context 1 was not on unemployment?

    Sorry to say but by uploading that you could get into a lot of trouble with AQA - they have strict copyright laws, I know a school who put up the JAN13 paper straight after it came out and they were given a £23000 fine apparently.

    I know Edexcel have such rules, but i've never heard anything of sort from AQA .. the paper has been posted on the day for the unit 1 2 and 3 and for other AQA subjects I take, plus your allowed to take the paper out of the exam ...

    Lol not sure about such a huge fine, but you are definitely not allowed to be taken out of exams. They are to be recycled (a few days after) or retained within the school
