    I'm sure some people will be able to help closer to the exam, unfortunately I have to focus on F582, once that's out the way, I'll start posting in this thread.

    Any tips on the 20 marker? Don't usually get many marks on the big essay questions at the end.

    Hey dudes! How would you structure a 20 marker?!
    First paragraph: Define the key terms in the questions (AO1). Start to introduce the essay with relevant theory (AO2) e.g. In theory this should cause firms to become more efficient.

    Second paragraph: Explain two points for the argument with a clear chain of arguments (AO2 AO3), try to use a diagram if possible. At the end of each point to an evaluation point (AO4) to why this may not be as effective or why it may not be a significant advantage.

    Third paragraph: Explain two points againest the argument (balanced argument) with a clear clear analysis (AO2 AO3), try to use a diagram if possible. At the end of each point to an evaluation point (AO4) to why this may not be as effective or why it may not be a significant advantage. Try to use word like it depends upon, however on the other hand.


    Fourth paragraph: Come to an overall judgement, weigh up what you have said and state which you think is the most relevant point. Justify why you have said this point and say what it depends up. 18plus i think you would have to say what the evaluative points depend up and expand it even further.

    Remeber each point you make should consist of AO2, AO3 and AO4

    If no ones gonna start then I'll try :/

    4a) "Analyse what is meant by an integrated transport policy" (15)

    To get into a Level 3 Band 3 (13-15marks) there need to be TWO clear analysis of TWO DIFFERENT types of integrated policies.

    L1 L2 (Introduce the questions key components in detail by making two to three points)
    • Simple definition of Integrated Policy: "a policy that encompasses all modes of passenger and freight transport"
    • Give examples i.e. bus subsidisation, ticketing, park and ride schemes, bike and ride schemes.


    L3 (Depending on depth of analysis, I would say 2-3 analysis points)
    • Bus subsidisation are grants from (usually) the government to lower the cost of production to bus providers as they may be perceived as a merit good --> this would lower the firms ULC --> shift supply curve outwards on a S&D diagram --> this lowers the price of bus services --> making them more attractive and cheaper --> this would increase the level of consumption to Q2 (or whatever) --> meaning that more people have decided to start using or perhaps switch to bus services throughout their journey --> hence, creating a more intertwined transport system.
    • Borris Bikes are another form of integrated transport policy --> their small size allows mobility whilst travelling within the condense city of London --> their large accessibility and low hourly costs make them attract to hire --> furthermore, there is no licensing required to hire the bikes which makes them even more attractive and more accessible to users --> this may encourage car users within the city to switch to a bikes due to the fact it allows more mobility on congested roads --> more time is saved --> lowers the cost to the consumer --> increases consumption of Borris Bikes --> this increases the diversity of transport that they use --> hence, increasing transport integration


    Any criticisms? --> just tryna get used to this -__-
