    Hey guys, I wanted to make an official thread of the A2 F585 Economics exam in June.

    For those of you without a case study, here is a link to it.

    I've already started going through it; underlining key points and trying to get a feel of how the exam will be tailored to it.

    So, let's start our discussion, post questions, ideas, exam tips and most importantly opinions about the case study.

    I did F585 in Jan and the essays are always based on the last extract so your essays based on sustainable development

    I find the same thing true. The last exam, our class predicted 100% that the essay would be on FDI. The end of the extract basically gifted it to us!

    If it is on sustainable development, then I'll need to get cracking on revising that because that's a tricky one in my opinion.

    I'm on the same boat. My college doesn't give those out, so anyone who does have anything like that, if you email it to me as well it would be greatly appreciated!

    Guys, one quick revision tip.

    I'm going through each extract (including introduction) and highlighting key points with questions that could be given on them. I've literally wrote "why" or "how does this..." on some of the paragraphs so I can be prepared for any questions.

    I'm making a case study guide, though my teacher will produce one anyway, that has key definitions from each extract, key points and expanded analysis. For example, the introduction talks about a single currency, so I've made a page saying what it is, the benefits for and against etc...

    If anyone would like a final copy of that, let me know. Hopefully I can complete it latest by 3 weeks.

    If nobody can get hold of a free copy of the toolkit from their college etc, would you guys be up for a 'whip round'? Its £50 but maybe will only be £2.50 or so each? Oh and how is everyone revising for sustainable development? At the moment I'm just creating a For and Against argument and I'm going to try to think up some evaluation for it but I find Economics is my hardest subject to revise for

    What exactly is the tool kit?

    And would love your notes on questions that could come up, upload them on here when you've got them please

    I'm finding the Macro part of this very nice, basically the first couple case studies, but the development park is a tad tricky.
