    Hi, for the 18 mark question I did not give any examples. This is level 2 if I misses this will my marks be capped at that level or can i proceed to level 3 and 4 as they were really good. And what else counts as level 2 I had diagrams of subsidies does this count?
    So long as you at least used a diagram or at least explained the application of subsidies, there's nothing to worry about.

    i think the supply curve shifts to the left for the agricultral product diagram, it did say in the article that less land will be used for agricultral products thus supply shift to the left, result in increase in price and fall in quantity. If you shift the demand curve, even though it raises price levels, it would show an increase in quantity of agricultral products, but this was not the case, it never said there was going to be an increase in demand as well for the products.
    Im not sure though..

    Still, the fact that such questions have never been asked in a "comment" style made them difficult for many people.

    What did you write?

    they were being efficient for producing biofuel but not so for other goods as a result, cant remember all the examples in the case study. The public good one was just define it and explain how the characteristics of it may or may not be applied to those areas

    i explained how a subsidy reduced the cost of production and increased profitability therefore producers were willing to supply more. I then drew a rightwards shift of supply and analysed the effects for example the price and quantity changed.

    Will merit goods with positive externalities be an example for level 2? I have level 1 3 and 4 but not sure if i have ticked level 2 and if so does my marks get capped?

    For the question asking how "price could significantly increase", is there any chance a double shift could be awarded marks? I.e. Increase in demand, decrease in supply. Instead of just one shift?

    i also didn't use an example... just spoke about positive externalities (defined it) then said supply shifts right as production costs decrease so producer surplus will increase causing a fall in price from p1 to p2, resulting in an increase in consumer surplus leading to an increase in quantity demanded. This, in turn will solve the market failure reduce underconsumption and move the market close to allocative efficiency as consumer welfare increases.

    would this be ok...?????
    I did the same thing just talked about merit goods and positive externalities in general and not specificity. I also want to know if this is okay.

    Mentioning that subsidies show the true value of the positive externality of a good was sufficient. You still ought to link that to how subsidies reduce market failure.

    For the 18 mark question, I didn't explain any alternatives as the question asked will subsidies always correct market failure. I don't see how explaining and evaluating an alternate will really answer the question thus I didnt explain any alternatives. All I did was 2 analysis points of why subsidies may correct failure and 2 evaluation points for why it's not with conclusions and diagrams

    Same here. I also didn't use an example- mine was purely theory based :/

    What explanation did you give for the diagram? I mean why did you use it?

    They don't cap because of mistakes -provided you met the level criteria with other points, you can still earn high marks.
