    My teacher thinks it will be something to do with Scottish Independance or on poverty and inequality as its been a while since that came up
    I still feel like I dont know anything for this exam lol, but I guess everyone feels that way
    What does your teacher think will come up?

    I just use the s-cool website which seems to be very useful and concise for Unit 4. My teachers suggested that immigration could come up, what do you think to that?

    For this essay:

    "Discuss the possible contribution of supply-side reforms to achieving an improvement in
    the UK balance of trade in goods." (25 Marks)

    Would I set it out as:
    Paragraph 1: contribution of SS reforms
    Paragraph 2: another factor for the contribution of SS reforms (then evaluate SS reforms, such as time lags)
    Paragraph 3: against SS reforms (depreciation of £, then evaluate this - J-curve)
    Paragraph 4: against SS reforms (import control, or expenditure reducing policies, then evaluate these - loss of welfare and lower standard of living, respectively)

    Or would I have 2 paragaphs of the SS reforms, and then evaluate the SS reforms, and then say whether SS reforms are good or not.

    The former way seems like a more detailed alternative to the latter way; I'd recommend the former (although be wary of time constraints!).

    Thought this thread could do with a bump. Let's hope we get some more people in asap!

    I don't know about you but I tend to focus less on my structure now, even though it is important and just ensuring that I'm answering the question, well applied and good evaluation

    Yes my teacher said Scottish independence is likely to come up as they usually include questions that is currently on the news and there won't be another chance to put this question in

    Do you do these from the book, online videos or mark schemes?
