    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has any ideas on what may come up? any advice before the exam etc.

    I'm really hoping price discrimination will be one of the essay questions

    Hey, I'm doing this exam too and honestly speaking, I prefer unit 4 compared to 3. I don't feel very confident with these unit 3 essays =(

    Does anyone else feel that the context questions are a bit awkward? Like it always asks about government policies but that's so vague and doesn't require that much theory, I really don't like these questions, can anyone shed some light about how best to answer these types of questions?

    A caring person clearly, there is no real trend and therefore no way of predicting what will come up, however;
    I would recommend:
    - Going through your notes in line with the spec ( http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/busin...ubject-content )
    - Learning strong evaluation techniques, i use WEESTEPS
    Wider Context (Using the context data (quotes))
    Efficiency
    Equity
    Sustainability
    Time (SR/LR)
    Effectiveness
    Prioritisation (Stongest points)
    Scale (Does the policy affect a wide range of people .. etc)
    - Revising over a section then looking over past questions based around this section, i have a word file of all past questions if you would like it, this can be writing up plans and comparing with mark schemes or doing the question
    - Extras: Specific Economists to support points .. Quotes
    - Current Data
    - Other theories of the firm for strong conclusion/evaluation (Revenue Maximisation, Limit Pricing, Neo-keynesian theory of firm, Environmental Objectives, Satisficing)
