# F582 - January 2013 - Question Spotting watch

1. (Original post by Hithere!)
I put something like 1.12% inflation and -\$190(roughly)m
and that it depreciated
It's 12%, +10M and yes, it depreciated.
2. How was the trade balance done then, I thought it was 5% of total exports minus 6% of total imports of India?
And Yeah inflation I did completely wrong!
Obviously wasn't think straight! So frustrating
3. The 18 marker was a bee with an itch and a half
My exam got interrupted for a fire alarm, not impressed.
I talked about the 18 marker with my Econ teacher after and I told him what I did, and he said that's what he would've done so hopefully I did okay. Luckily I was pretty well learned in the rest of the paper, so fingers crossed! Hope everyone else here does well!

Exports - 5% of \$9800mn = 490mn
Imports - 6% of \$8000mn = 480mn

490-480 = \$10mn
5. that paper was dirt around 4 of the candidates just left half way through, im just hoping the grade boundaries are 5 marks for a B lol
6. I'm hoping for low boundaries. The 18 marker was just so random

7. 5 marks for the inflation question?! what did you guys put
8. This was horrible compared to last year..I only got one of three calculations right..the essay was okay along with the comment on questions though (: Everything else was blah
9. Hi guys.

Just a few quick thoughts on that exam.

Pie charts. That's a first.

18-marker, little strange, nothing owing to a particular policy. My main argument was that it depends if AD is low/high and that cost-push inflation is far more dangerous than demand-pull, because it is not backed up with a sufficient increase in real GDP.

5 marks to explain how CPI is calculated. Hmm, OK.

It could have been easier and it could have been harder.

I felt as though, seeing as this syllabus has been tried and tested a number of times, they're beginning to get more "straight-to-the-point" each time.

Good luck to all who took it. Let's hope for some good results on the 7th of March.
10. Can someone post the exam paper or just the 18 marker question?? Thanx in advance

I think it was Discuss the extent to which a decrease in aggregate supply is harmful to the economy.
