    Context was good,but didn't like the essays.

    For the context about the EU being the best way to get growth, I split it into BRICs, EU and Fiscal policy, weighed up the advantages and disadvantages of achieving growth then concluded which I thought would be best for achieving growth.
    Did you have to talk about the effects of growth? I didn't think the question warranted it... Was I wrong to not talk about the benefits and costs? It's just that the question asked what was the best way? Unless you linked it back to that, then wouldn't it be irrelevant?

    Yes you had to say whether being in the EU is good for economic growth

    I misinterpreted the question and wrote about a argument on the benefits and costs on being in the EU and my main argument was leaving the eu is good for economic growth which is wrong apparently

    The quote said whether the EU was the "best" source for economic growth so why wouldn't you be able to talk about trade with other countries being a better alternative for economic growth? The extract also mentioned the "global economy worsening" which I used in my essay so pretty sure it has some relevance?

    I messed this definition as I wasn't taught what it was. I defined recession then said two recessions in a row. But its a recession followed by short recovery then another recession I think

    I wasn't taught this either but I defined a generic recession in the UK and then said that before an economy fully recovers they enter another recession.

    Yeah, writing about whether being in the EU is good for growth is right, but its not about the effects of growth e.g. higher living standard?

    Yeah, I almost misinterpreted the question. I briefly mentioned in my conclusion that they should not leave, just to cover myself as I was unsure.

    But, hopefully, that doesn't give the examiner the wrong idea lol.

    309/400 - Suprised I was that close to an A. I'll probably retake ECON4 to get the extra marks as I think I could've done better.

    Can someone help me? I am not sure which exam I should get remarked ECON2 or ECON4

    ECON2 - 82
    ECON4 - 77

    I am close to an A overall but the thing is I weren't that confident in ECON4 but managed to do quite well and people seem to be doing worse in this module than the others so it might have been marked harsh. On the other hand I thought I had done better in ECON2 I thought I'd get around the low 90's so now I don't know which one I ant remarking

    You could remark both? If your overall grade goes up you should get all the money refunded
