Consumer surplus yeah
They only asked for a definition, then you had to draw a supply and demand diagram, with supply shifting to the left right?

For the 18 marker the only third party I wrote was the people that may have wanted more fuel? and i dont think i mentioned negative externalities
and I just argued points for and against, with evaluation points
Will I be capped?

The 18 marker didnt require alternatives, the question included 'always' it was just a for and against question, you could mention alternations as part of the against for the opp cost but not a full section because the question wasnt about the effectiveness

That's what you're supposed to do, except price rises not falls

Oh yes my mistake.

But are you sure your supposed to do this because as you know most consumer surplus diagrams shows shift in demand and only ONE supply curve. I only did a shift in supply because it said show something like this in the question.

Absolutely no requirement to mention the case study at all in the last q anyway
Is that absolutely fine, we won't get penalised for it?

mark schemes normally say you do NOT have to refer to the case study. But most candidates use it as an example because it is normally related to the essay

What did people write for what makes the ped more elastic, i said number of subistues for one, and then i said some products are neccessities and people need them eg rice so are more inelastic than others

Thats what i was thinking but that was the template we used for the 18 marks, I was so confused during the exam I didnt know what to write for that

and when I came out of the exam apparently we had include negative externality/third party and demerit/merit good?

Yes, it was an odd one but I think you're correct, that's what myself and most people I know got. It definitely said supply in the question

On the consumer surplus one I didn't draw in the two supply curves I just showed the change of price it would cause and the demand curves. Will I be penalised?

It wouldn't. But for an evaluation point you could say that it was used on a demerit good, but that would cause more market failure, as the subsidy essay didn't specify what type of good the subsidy was placed on.

Does anyone have any opinion with regards to the Grade boundaries? I'm guessing between 42-44 wasn't the easiest paper?
