    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
    So basically we have to hope other people did worse than us lol

    I ran out of time for theme 1 and so I did the 20 marker first. Finished it properly haha. I found theme 2 easier when I was afraid I would fail this one xD.

    For the india question I talked about how it would be cheaper manufacturing there and some other bs lol

    Globalisation I talked about an increase in FDI, unemployment I think and migration (don't know why I did migration).

    The Research and dev question I said how process and product innovation can be done. Then I taked about alternatives such as lean production.

    The globalisation one for me really sucked with the rest ok. I found the 20 marker ok actually
    I think theme 1 was a better paper even though I didn't finish the last question

    Hey guys, Hope the year is coming along well!

    On the Edexcel website it says "For Paper 3, there will be a pre-released context document issued on our website
    in November of the previous year. A new context will be given to centres each year and will relate to the examination series for the following summer.". This has got me real confused.. I self study Economics B so am I supposed to request the context with my center? How does this work?

    Hi I was was wondering about that as well, I am a student looking for an A* and realistically feel I need to be looking out for this ASAP.

    If you could help, I'd be forever grateful
