    On the 25 marker in context one I just talked about market failure caused by externalities and gambling as a demerit good and talked about two solutions tax&information provision and ended up combining the two in a hypothecated tax whilst talking about the risks of government failure. Will it matter that I did not talk about monopolies as I assumed the 3 market failures mentioned were just guidelines for the essay?

    I compiled all the market failures together stating that monopolies were the source of market failures currently by saying that monopolies earn high profits which then goes to shareholders ect. this concentrates income among the richest creating income inequality. With the poorest then unable to afford rent ect. leading to the consumption of demerit goods E.G. gambling which was producing negative externalities. I then analysed the reduction in monopolies, advantages and disadvantages ect, before wraping it up into a conclusion

    Thinking about it I should of done this as explaining monopoly etc would've been easy marks but I'm just hoping their is no deduction in marks for not mentioning mononopolies as I feel I explained externalities in the market to a top level

    Im sure even economic markers wouldn't be harsh enough to take away marks for that the only two things im aware markers deduct if you don't do is using the extracts and not concluding

    That is a relief also the 3 market failures were mentioned more as a PS than an actual command question so I should stop worrying and get on with C1 revision!!

    You should have received a separate sheet with at least 25 lines... A, B, C and D all being open circles and you shade one of each

    The answer sheet is scanned by a computer so if the circle isn't shaded then the system may not pick it up.

    The paper with the actual questions doesn't even have your details on it. Why did most of you not even read the instructions?

    your multiple choice paper will be thrown away

    ticking answers means you cancelled them
