    The 18 marker has always been on correcting market failure so they may have something different this year? So nervous!

    Also, how's F582 revision going?

    Thats true but I honesty don't see what else it could be on? Market failure has the most substance.

    I think I am more confident with F582 as there is so much more to write about as opposed to F581 which is basically all centered around supply and demand. For F582 i think i need to mainly nail how to measure employment and get my head around all the different organisations and surveys.
    What about you??

    The 18 marker might be on Tradeable Pollution Permits... hasn't come up before.

    Lol I'm finding F582 more difficult especially learning all the Causes and Effects of BOP, Inflation, Unemployment, Growth

    How many past papers have you done? are you planning on doing all of them?

    Hi Guys,
    I have attached a few resources that I think will be helpful for you guys!
    First is an A grade script
    Second is a presentation that covers all the types of questions that come up in a F581 exam and states exactly how to answer them in a way that WILL GET YOU THE MARKS.
    Finally I have attached some photographs of an 18 mark question that got full marks. This DOES NOT belong to me, I found it off TSR (really sorry cant remember the user)
    EIGHT DAYSSSSSS

    thats so helpful thanks, do you have any more grade A scripts by any chance?

    But the 18 marker may be revolved around evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of trade able permits and whether it's the best solution to solve market failure or something

    Hmmm may you tell me why you sure of this?
    Because since of the A Level reform, they may want to do something tricky.
    Im just so scared D:

    Though it has never been on but they may want to do something different?

    As what I was told by my teacher, to get level 4 on the essay question, u should state the alternative method in yr essay and maybe briefly give the advantages and disadvantage to yr alternative method. hope it helps! Good luck everyone.
