    5 markers that have come up in previous years and so are most likely not to come up in the exam:


    income elasticity of demand
    subsidy
    demerit good
    negative externality
    normal good
    social costs
    economies of scale
    positive externality
    equilibrium price
    market failure
    price elasticity of supply
    market mechanism
    composite demand
    external cost
    scarce resources
    factor of production
    positive cross elasticity of demand
    marginal private cost
    derived demand
    private goods
    --------------------------------------

    therefore what could come up:

    buffer stock
    consumer surplus
    negative cross elasticity of demand
    demand
    supply
    diseconomies of scale
    division of labour
    economic good
    excess demand
    excess supply
    geographical immobility
    government failure
    indirect tax
    inferior good
    information failure
    joint supply
    market failure
    merit good
    occupational immobility
    monopoly
    normal good
    opportunity cost
    normative statement
    price elasticity of demand
    positive statement
    price elasticity of supply
    private benefit
    producer surplus
    public good
    specialisation


    DONT TAKE MY WORD FOR THIS
    THE QUESTION COULD BE SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT OR COULD EVEN BE A REPEAT...WHO KNOWS???

    Hi do you think the 25 marker question will be on the housing market?, I have a feeling that it will come up this year the past few years haven't bought it up so they might do so this year

    Wouldn't bank on it! Very hard to predict the exact topic but fairly safe to assume that externalities/market failure will be a key concept to at least one of the 25 mark questions.
