    Omg I f***** up on 1b, the comparative advantage question, we're you meant to draw the trade barrier diagram? Because I did not! I only realised on literally the last minute that you were meant to do that, were you?

    I'm sorry I didn't reply! I didn't log back onto student room until now. Where you able to find another reason for why SS policies may not be key to growth?

    I'm worried that it may have been too nice and that the grade boundaries are gonna be really high.. Always positive..

    Trade barrier? No I don't think so. At least, no one I spoke to did the diagram as it didn't seem to be in relation to the question.

    Really? Ok thank goodness for that, I was just have a nervous breakdown for half an hour.
    What did you write for it?
    How did you find the exam? I think other than that it was pretty nice, especially the last two questions

    What was the 2c question asking for? I didn't understand the wording.

    Also is FDI a factor promoting globalisation or not?

    2c was just pros and cons of remittances for development

    Was 2c the one about remittances? It was just about how remittances lead to development (through top up of income, promoting small scale businedses) and how it doesn't (the actual amount of remittances sent back is very small and that it could lead to individuals not finding jobs because they depend purely on remittances)

    I think the growth of MNC s could have been mentioned for the globalisation question but I'm not sure about FDI

    I don't think so, there were more difficult aspects of it which I suppose could have tripped people up
    Let's just hope that nationally people didn't do well so the grade boundaries are low :P

    What did you write? ?

    I mentioned how a depreciation would work and how it appeared to be successful in reducing the deficit over the five years- I probably should have mentioned the Marshall Lerner condition being satisfied but I didn't :/

    And then I said how even though it appreciated in 2007 the deficit actually fell and this might have been due to the recession so lack of demand for imports.

    There's so much more I feel like I should have said but I just get panicky in exams hence why I didn't
