I shifted both on the second question. 18 marker was a godsend. What did everyone put for commenting on allocative efficiency?

I feel like the grade boundaries could be pretty high.
It increased welfare, reduced under-production and then added that it increased consumer surplus (not to do directly with allocative efficiency)

An increase in demand and a decrease in supply would significantly increase price, yes.

Yeah same I reckon you will get 4 marks any for explaining it correctly with the right labels and equilibriums everyone has seem to have done one or the other

Do you guys consider this paper to be easier than previous papers? Perhaps easier than 2014?

The term significantly implied that both should be shifted. Essay was indeed superb!

Posted from TSR Mobile
My teacher seemed to think that a shift in either would be sufficient as it wasn't clear, significantly could also be depending on the size of the shift. I only showed a shift in supply as this is what I picked up on from the case study but wrote about the effect if demand shifted too, so hopefully it'll be decent at least.

Don't worry -that's probably okay as well. If the decrease in supply was significant, so would the price change. I just did both to be on the safe side.

18 marker gave no context at all? Should I have referred to case study? Or given specific examples? The lack of context threw me, and now reckon I'm getting capped because of no examples, despite getting 16 and 17 in last two practices. :/

No need to refer to the case itself, although that could be useful.

Examples are L2 material. I added two, after explaining what a subsidy actually is, but it is not required. I wouldn't worry if I were you...

Did the question ask specifically why agricultural prices would rise? Or just prices in general?

I guess we'll just have to wait to see what the answer was that they wanted. Either way, hopefully the rest of the paper made up for anything I lost there.

It asked, as far as I remember, how the price could increase significantly, as shown by a D&S diagram.

It was something like "use an s&d diagram to show why the price of agricultural products may rise". It was specifically related to agriculture anyway.

Ok thank you, Im glad you found it easy

I didn't take economics but I took the three sciences and philosophy ( All OCR except chemistry) so I wanted to know if they were going to be nice this year, 2014 papers threw so many people off that's why Im worried.

Thanks for the reply
