If a subsidy is payed to consumers (e.g a university grant or winter fuel allowance) does it increase demand or supply?
Do not worry, you only ever have to show a change in supply

In that case, it's the change in demand that needs to be shown. The supply curve is irrelevant here.

As part of the main essay you would not be asked at all to have to draw a graph depicting a subsidy given to consumers

If the question asked what he asked (ie the effect on the market of a subsidy to consumers), then he would be expected to show the shift in demand.

Lets not argue, I have another question: what is the difference between the pros and cons of specialisation and the pros/cons of the division of labour?

Very similar, except with division of labour talk more about boredom for workers etc whereas specialisation pros can include stuff like trade between developed and developing economies

Specialisation can refer to everything, from an individual to a whole country. Division of labour only refers to workers.

The differences in the advantages/disadvantages should draw on this distinction.

The division of labour is specialisation, so there's no difference in the pros/cons.

Let's not make empty claims please. The specification mentions how subsidies can be used to reduce market failure. Giving subsidies to consumers in order to consume more of a merit good is a perfectly acceptable question.

But they're essentially the same thing. About 99% of the pros/cons would overlap - the only one that I can think of that doesn't is specialisation on a national level.

If I say 'it moves the market closer to allocative efficiency' - do I say it moves the market closer to where consumer satisfaction is maximised?

I know that to access L4, you need L3 Band 2, what are some examples of Level 3 Band 2?

That's the definition of allocative efficiency, so yes.

This one is L3 Band 2 analysis. Things like "reduces overconsumption/overproduction", "increases social welfare" and the like are band 2.
