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)
