    I put something like 1.12% inflation and -$190(roughly)m
    and that it depreciated
    It's 12%, +10M and yes, it depreciated.

    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

    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

    I'm hoping for low boundaries. The 18 marker was just so random

    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.

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