    Hi, I only took unit 1 today and yeah I'm not too sure how well it went either. I didn't think it went ridiculously badly. I thought some of the 8 mark questions were a little challenging but not the worse it could have been.

    I found unit 1 harder than unit 2 and I even found unit 2 quite hard to an extent.

    Just wondering what you guys got for the question that asks how much revenue is made from one room during one of the first questions about the monopoly for the tourist area or how you worked it out in unit 1

    Nope I don't think it does. A double bedroom is pretty much a single bedroom big enough to fit a double bed in so that it is big enough for two people to sleep in it.

    yeah It was just the fact that they said double rooms not double bedrooms that threw me of guard a bit

    There was a question asking what factors these two guys had to consider on opening their new shop or something and had to explain why? i think they already had one company but wanted to expand to card shop or food shop or something, what did you guys put for that? I put stuff like substitutability of factors of production and production laggs in producing food e/g crops etc
