    Hey I need help to make a decision..
    So basically last year for AS in Econ1 I got 64/100 UMS and for Econ2 I got 77/100 UMS.
    I got a B with 141 UMS. I want to get an A this year in A2 but I don't know which unit I should retake? Econ1 or Econ2? The problem is that I am not good in Econ1 and I don't want to learn everything again.. I would rather retake Econ2 as it is similar to Econ4 but is it possible to get an A if I retake Econ2?

    Econ 2 - definitely. Econ4 is basically an extension of unit 2 so you don't even need to revise for the exam, hence why you should retake it whereas with unit 1, you'd have to cover it all again

    Hey, can someone help me with a multiple choice question from June 11?
    Its Q.6

    The table below shows the shares of total income of different income groups in 2005 and 2010for an economy.

    % share of total income % Income Group 2005 2010
    Bottom 10% 4.1 2.5
    Bottom 20% 9.8 6.8
    Bottom 30% 16.0 12.0
    Top 30% 47.0 54.0
    Top 20% 35.0 41.0
    Top 10% 20.0 26.0

    From the data, it may be concluded that over the period in question
    A the bottom income groups experienced a fall in their income.
    B the distribution of income became more unequal.
    C the distribution of wealth became more unequal.
    D everyone became better off because total income increased.

    The Answer is B but I dont understand why the answer isnt A???

    The bottom income groups experienced a fall in the percentage of overall income that they shared-this doesn't mean that they necessarily experienced a fall in their actual income

    It isn't A because we don't know their income, just the %.

    For instance, the bottom 10%'s income might have risen, just by a lower percentage than the top 10%.
