    probably not, it's computer scanned so as long as it was filled in properly i don't think it would make a difference if you answered in pink
    Thank you

    Damn didn't do that paper, as it wasn't on AQA website and couldn't be bothered finding it, were any others recycled?
    I counted around 6 recycled questions which I remembered

    for context 2 12 marker i did:
    definition of investment and 'rate of growth' (economic growth)
    said how in short term investment increases AD, creates short term economic growth as increased RNO
    said how in long term invesment could possibly lead to innovation, better tech/machinery etc so increase in productive potential of economy (showed this on ad/as diagram shifting lras right) then y1 to y2 being increase in potential, again increased economic growth as more RNO

    hows this?
    also saying multiplier effect will gain you more marks probably

    C - Trade in goods and services, investment incomes and transfers.
    D - Transfers involving money in and out of the economy.

    I put C because D threw me off as it sounds a bit like Circular Flow rather than BoP but I have regrets.
    I also put C

    D would have been incorrect as the total money thing would mean the current account and the capital account. We didn't have to know the capital account for our AS though.

    Circular flow is about money into and out of the country, as well as how the money travels within the economy, while D would be only about how it flees and enters.

    I did similar. spoke about how investment was a component of ad meaning an increase in investment. would shift ad outwards.
    spoke about capital investment increases > productivity > output increases > LRAS increases > economic growth

    Can anyone remember context two question 08??? What was it again? The Britain one?

    Were we supposed to relate greatly to the UK and the three extracts, or could we just talk in general?

    I simply stated how conflicts can arise and can be solved (so pro and against) in between econ growth and keeping pollution and inflation down (gov objectives), and how income redistribution (a government objective of some countries) may conflict with econ growth too.

    I only stated two things from the extracts at the end of the exam in passing just when I realised what the question really was about ....

    Please, some feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    I answered the multiple choice in pencil, would this be an issue ?
    They will probs realise you must have done something like that when they scan it and it comes up with 0 so they will probably check it, but did you not do the first exam or did you do pencil for both? (You might want to call up the exam board or tell your exam person in school about it)

    I did state that there would an increase in the industrial capacity of the economy, but I used a graph showing the trend and current growth, and how investment tends to increase trend growth, making it harder for current growth to reach it or surpass it and thus cause demand-pull inflation. I did say that in the short term it's also part of aggregate demand so it improves the economy that way too, not only in the long run with less inflationary pressure, etc.

    What do you think? =o

    Also, didn't anyone else notice that the multiple choice had a couple questions that could have been answered by a couple answers?? The questions were at times too ambiguous to be sure of your reply...

    What did you guys choose for an increase in the currency value? Fall in aggregate supply and increase in aggregate demand, right??

    Yeah they scan it to save time and stuff, all that economies of scale stuff

    There were instructions on the back and it says to cross over the wrong answer...

    C - Trade in goods and services, investment incomes and transfers.
    D - Transfers involving money in and out of the economy.

    I put C because D threw me off as it sounds a bit like Circular Flow rather than BoP but I have regrets.
    I put C as well like many others because that's what the Balance of payments is

    Yup.

    Appreciation of a currency = increase in the currency's value on the world market

    seriously? isn't that what was meant to be done in question 6?

    i hate essays, i have never been good in them and my teacher always focused on multiple choices and data significance questions which was completely useless to me, i felt like i wasted at least half a year
    Yeah there were 4 columns, you had to talk about growth and inflation, not the others :/

    The Extracts guided you as to which direction your answer should take - it mentioned unbalanced growth (e.g. growth based on consumption), lack of productivity and therefore perhaps the necessity of supply side policies, the situations when inflation might emerge. So you don't by any means have to refer to what the Extract was telling you, a variety of approaches would be acceptable, but as long as you followed the clues in the Extract and your own knowledge you probably couldn't go wrong.

    Yup.

    Appreciation of a currency = increase in the currency's value on the world market
    if currency appreciates then AD falls and SRAS shifts right, so the answer was c?
