Have a look through past papers- I think you need to know a couple of advantages/disadvantages- but I may be wrong, best to check yourself

I cannot get a hold of the Jan 2013 paper, however, I did read the examiners report and yes a question came up on calculating CPI. Reading the report I could tell that it was a hard paper so fingers crossed that this ones going to be easier.

I have not come across as what you have mentioned while doing my past papers, but I think it's better to remember them as there might be some evaluation question where you might need to say, "however, LFS only covers 60000 people" or something similar. anyway fingers crossed it'll be easy coz Im sitting this paper as well!

How did people answer this question in the january 2013 paper.

Q)
Using information in the case study, calculate Sudan's trade balance with India in 2010 (2marks)

i have the mark scheme answer which is :
Two marks for US$10m.
One mark for correct working i.e. US $490m –US $480m or
just 10 or -10m

but i dont know where the figures came from, like $490 and $480..

THANKS!

It's because Sudan exported $9800m, and 5% of this was to India. So Sudan exported $490m to India.
It imported $8000m, and 6% of this was from India. So Sudan imported $480m from India.
To work out a trade balance you do: Exports - Imports.
490 - 480 = $10m

in the pie chart it shows that India has 5% of Sudan's exports and 6% its imports
we are then told that Sudan's total exports were US$9800m and imports were US$8000m.
therefore you work out what 5% and 6% of this is and take them away from each other:
US$490 - US$480 which gives you the answer of US$10m

hope that helps
