    What topics came up in the January exam? Would those topics probably not come up in the exam tomorrow?

    And how likely is Elasticity of Demand to come up? Only topic I find any problem writing more than a short paragraph on with detail.

    Cheers!

    elasticity of demand is highly unlikely to come up as a stand alone question. it normally gives you the value for it or has data on it so you can work it out yourself, then just incorporate these figures into any of the long 13-15 mark essays to support your argument.

    Same haa I spent literally all of half term revising biology so I'm so tired. How did you find the biology? I'm guessing you did f212 right?
    Yeah! It was okay, reckon I lost a few marks on silly mistakes, but overall I'm happy! How about you?

    the main thing i've come across in examiners reports is that people make loads of relevant points, but never develop them. lots of little points = 3 marks. 2 fully developed points = 6 marks. its all about quality. also, just dropping the name of the business will get you 0 marks. state a point and analyse it in context of the business. so for example, you could make a very generic point saying 'decreasing price may increase sales revenue as more customers will be attracted to it'. a better response would be 'decreasing prices would be good for company X because demand for their goods is elastic (shown by the value of 1.5) therefore this means sales would increase. you've used something given to you in the case study to support and strengthen your argument, rather than only mentioning their name which would score nothing.
    theres loads of marks for evaluation in this paper so make it thorough. i believe X, my main reason being...but this will depend on..in the short term this may happen if they choose this decision..this will have an impact on their objective of 10% increase in sales etc etc.
    also a key thing, to get high application + analysis marks in the long 13-15 markers its a very good idea to use figures to support your argument. not ones theyve already given to you, but actually calculating your own figures from given data.

    I thought most of it was alright, but the collagen questions at the start I wasn't really sure about, hadnt learnt it too well haha, and it was like 10% of the paper on collagen ^.^ . For the 6 marker i wrote it was a helix has fibrils and then I wrote about it having disulfide bonds an hydrophobic interactions or something.. Probably totally wrong but anyways.

    Can someone go over price elasticity for me? I am struggling to understand it. The only thing I know is that if it is price elastic a change in price will have a significant change in demand. For price inelastic a change in price wont have much affect on change in demand.

    ignore the sign, treat it as being positive. a value between 0 and less than 1 = price inelastic, therefore demand wont change with price. 1 and anything greater than 1 -= elastic, so demand changes with price.

    price inelastic = increase your prices
    price elastic = decrease your prices

    so if youre given a value of -2.2, ignore the -ve sign. its just 2.2, and therefore elastic
