    I found the data response stuff pretty tough, but the 40mark essays were ok-ish.

    All over now!!!

    Yeah but they're not economists as such. Habermas talked about legitimation crises and Nozick was a minarchist!

    I thought it went pretty well and itwas definitely worth taking the paper. I couldn't really be bothered before but the paper was pretty appealing. Thought that the data response on fiscal policy gave you lots to get your teeth into and lots of scope for advanced material. The essays were a bit more unit 6 style - I chose the contestability one and the exchange rates.

    Also - who told you that you have to cover all the material on the AQA course? Ie if you do Edexcel you need both unit 5 options.

    My teacher told me that once AQA made a major blunder and set a huge portion of the AEA on labour markets and that it most definitely wouldn't happen again. The problem occured because the AEA is supposed to be set on ground common to all syllabuses, and whoever was setting it glanced at the Edexcel syllabus and saw 'Labour Markets' without noticing it was optional.
