    You should be able to get the MS in 9 days off your teacher I believe.

    I didn't take this exam today, took it in January, what were the Data Response on?

    Ah yea, last summer was NHS and Monopolies? What were the 3 policies you talked about?

    The one I sat in January was a lovely paper!

    MC was one of the toughest ive seen, some very tricky questions in there!

    Data response was nice though - I chose mobile phones and talked about education (neg ext diagram showing over consumption and information gap), regulation and minimum prices w/ diag.

    It was very hard, i didnt finish it either the question 04 on tuiton fees.

    MC was tough, although there was like about 8 easy questions and 10 medium with 7 really hard ones (guessed)

    DR was ok, i think 01, 02, 03 were ok, i'm aiming for strong marks in them since i didnt do a conclusion in 04 because of time issues, i know i didnt even enter level 4 so look at around 14marks max.

    Can We Discuss Multiple Choice questions since they are still fresh in mind.

    Did anyone find 02 a bit confusing in terms of comparisons..

    And what points were raised on question 04?

    Thanks

    Hi, I too looked at context 2. What you say you've written doesn't sound wrong to me? You'll be credited with marks for saying that in the analysis section, however most of the marks come from your evaluation which I'm not to sure on tbh. How was everyone's multiple choice? I got very few C's. Is this the same for everyone else?

    I did too! i'd say it was the 'obvious' choice, although a little less obvious in the case of this paper

    Hi, can someone tell me if this is right, I did context 2 about mobile phones and wrote about taxation, regulation and education and why if the government inforced these they might work but light cause market failure? I did analyse them in quite a lot if detail but jut wondered if they were right?
    Thanks

    Those policies sound good! Esepcially because Mobiles are a demerit good, therefore arguably inelastic so education will shift rather than cause a movement -

    Would have loved that in mine!
