It really can't. Provision of information is always used in conjunction with some other policy - it doesn't work effectively on it's own. Therefore, they cannot give an 18 marker based solely of provision of information.
state provision came up in jan 2010. Though that isn't a good premise in argument for info prov. coming up it still shows obscure market solutions may come up.

Last years f581 paper was a disgrace for OCR, who had to lower the grade boundaries by 7 marks because they made a ridiculous paper
this year it is much easier, so expect the grade boundaries to be back at 48/49

That was a very tricky one, yes, but examiners have specified that info prov cannot at all come up by itself

Thank you for sooooo much your information - I've decided to just revise the topics you've said will come up as that's the best course of action to take. Thanks again! Absolute lifesaver

State provision isn't obscure?

My point was is that provision of information cannot come up on it's own in an 18 marker. It can come up with other policies, but not on it's own.

It is reasonably obscure, I mean it doesn't even have a graph. Because how would you show 'free at the point of use' on a graph with a price axis.

the grade boundaries are meant to be 48 for an A
2013 and 2012 only a small percentage scored 42 and above

Fair enough, but it is a good solution for positive externalities (which, if you wanted to speculate, haven't come up in a long time)

You could always do a D/S diagram with a right shift in demand if you really wanted a diagram.

I don't understand. If the merit good was health care or education then the equilibrium would have to be on the quantity traded axis as there would be no price?? surely? Though there would be a finite limit to supply.

Guys just to clear this up:

Do NOT ever entirely trust predictions. This is a recipe for a fail, clear and straight.

You'll hear 10 people giving 100 different predictions. That's not even remotely trustworthy.
