    Hey, thanks for the tips. I did most of that last year in AS. I used previous exam papers to predict what may come up, but often found it difficult to apply my own knowledge to the case study.

    Is it ok if i have a look at your exam papers? I think my biggest challenge at AS was the 6 mark 'explain' questions. I like your method for the analysis question. In the exam I think I lost a few marks in some of the questions for not explaining properly. However, did you time to write in that much detail in the exam? also is it necessary to outline all the links?
    Attached is a 6 mark question where the command words are 'identify and explain' - I hope this was what you meant by the type of questions you found difficult. Ask if you want any other questions.

    My timing was 45 minutes for the first section worth 42 marks. I write quickly and I would fill up the space provided and probably another side on the back of the paper. I would then spend 35 minutes on the 18 mark question and wrote about 5 pages. I would then have about 10 minutes to check. I wouldn't advise that you use the timings I did; just find what works for you. Give more time to areas where you think you could lose marks, for me this was the 18 mark question

    you really do not need to do this much. i wrote 2 and a half pages and got 17/18 for the essay.

    Thanks What did you get in the 18 mark question?
    16/18 which were the only two marks I lost in the paper.

    As I have said, it varies from person to person how much time they want to spend on each section and how much they want to write. Although looking at where I lost my marks I think I was justified in how I allocated my time...

    Just had a quick look at a mark scheme.

    TV = Too vague
    Seen = Noted, but no credit given
    Do you have the mark scheme?

    I'm doing fiscal policy, why does a decrease in government spending reduce demand pull inflation? I get the AD shifting in bit, but I need some more analysis. Thanks

    Government spending is a component of AD. Hence a decrease in government spending will lead to a decrease in AD from AD1 to AD2. This leads to the diagram below. The price level reduces from P1 to P2. Therefore, the rate of inflation is slowed and demand pull inflation is deceased.

    You can also comment on the change in real GDP if you need to.
