    Guys I was just thinking aren't exchange rates meant to be theme 2? Or have I got that wrong? Anyway I think I did alright on the exchange rates questions so it don't really matter, just I seem to remember it being in theme 2 but maybe I'm wrong.

    This seems like a really silly question, but was the supply and demand diagram meant to be in pencil or pen?????

    I drew it in pencil but I don't think it makes any difference, just you can't correct mistakes with a pen if you make any that's all.

    I am scared as well, theme 2 is gonna be so hard. I have done up to the econ cycle today gonna try and finish that part of the spec tomorrow then do policies on sunday + the specimen paper. I ran out of time and my strategy this time is to do the 20 marker essay first. You should try ACDC Economics on youtube. He makes economics fun and easy to understand

    How do you guys think it went? I thought it was a pretty good paper and that last question was great imo, just a shame I didn't fully finish it although I was close to the end of it. Hope it went well for everyone and I'm glad to have it out of the way, I was so nervous about it before I did it

    Much better than theme 1.
    My weakest question was R and D believe it or not.

    I got 37.something for pc
    -40 for ped question

    Overall went well. Hopefully got a B overall

    Got the same as you for the calculations, R and D wasn't bad although I only very briefly revised that late last night when I realised I hadn't revised R and D really at all lol so probably could have done better in that question too but yeah glad that so far it seems like it was a better paper for us

    I didn't like the question on globalisation as it could bring me down
    Hopefully we've all done well and get the grades we want/deserve

    my teacher works for edexel swell and she said that they won't know the grade boundrys until they have marked all our papers as they give the top X % an A top Y% a B and so on , so the grade boundaries will be relative to our paper , but surely as we haven't had any past papers to work from they won't be that high
