    I spent way too long on context 1 and ended up missing 4 multiple choice questions
    Why didn't you guess?

    Just wondering what graph(s) you all used for the 12 mark question in context 2 about corn, soya beans and something else??

    I'm unsure if it was an easy paper or hard, I was very rushed and was pretty upset with the time limit :/
    Supply and demand diagram showing the subsidies which moves the supply curve from S1 to S2

    How about you?

    I panicked as someones phone was playing music and stupidly put down a subsidy and explained how that would decrease price, I've sent an email to my form tutor to complain about the phone it went off for half an hour before the invigilator did anything about it. :'(

    Do you think I've done the diagram one wrong i did supply and demand but showed an increase in demand from D1 to D2 and then that the government would subside to produce Q2 but with P3.. I thought I was right on that, then explained that the subsidy meant that processed food could be made and sold cheaply

    How many marks would this be for MPC
    I put its when an individual only considers the cost a good/service has on them. Then I just put an example of smoking where smokers only consider their private costs and they do not take into account social costs.

    I did a supply and demand diagram, then got P1 and Q1 from that... then I drew a rightward shift in demand to D2, which pushed the equilibrium price so i got Q2 and P2, I then marked P3 off the D1 curve as that is the price they would charge for Q2 as a subsidy? I think I've done it wrong :/

    If someone posts the paper I can hopefully make an unofficial mark scheme?

    Not bad, Context 1 looked horrendous so I did Context two which were:

    1) Define 'Marginal Private Cost'

    2) Identify two signficant points of the fruit and sugar graph (forgotten proper wording)

    3) Use a diagram to explain how subsidising corn, soya and beans is effecting processed foods (again not accurate)

    4) Evaluate for and against whether government's should intervene on the market for food and drink.

    The case study was about obesity and healthy eating etc.

    Sounds fairly easy, especially the 25 mark essay.

    I have drawn it and yeah the p2 to p3 is definitely the subsidy

    But my understanding is your showing an increase in demand is because of the subsidy which is correct

    but i thought it was the suppliers that were being subsidised hence the supply curve is being shifted right

    I think the question was why or how the subsiding of corn soya beans affects the market for processed food

    I didn't think its consumers that we're being subsidised if you understand my point

    But your graph's correct just depends how you explained it

    Yeah I think that's where I've messed up, my logic was that I was showing how it has benefited consumers... as by the price being reduced it's made the ingredients for processed food extremely cheap and widely available.

    Just tweeted my teacher and she said with a good explanation (which I did write) and the diagram labelled correctly I could still get 10/12 or something like that!
