    Unit 2 is going to be the death of me... its mainly why i pinned my hopes on Unit 1. The difficulty gap of Unit 1 and 2 is massive imo :no:

    IDKTution on Youtube has some good structure videos but Pajholden was just a bore fest. I just resorted back to the books

    Pajholden is very good for looking over content, particularly things you find hard. However, im not sure about unit 2

    Unit 2 is much different to unit 1 in terms of the data response, it requires serious knowledge on various topics in order for you to really squeeze out bits and bobs

    I agree! got a U in the mock a couple weeks ago, but hopefully can get a B, im generally decent at things when I put a bit of work into it.

    Same... the cold feeling of a U is not one I'd like to feel again! Lol but i think the 30 mark question is everyone's killer

    if you use points not on the markscheme but are still valid do you still get analysis/evaluation marks for them if so does this also apply to graphs?

    That's surprising, it's the opposite for me. I'm relying on Unit 2 to make up for my mediocre performance in Unit 1!

    IDK is amazing! He posted an exam technique video for unit 2 today if any of you are interested.

    He mentions including externalities diagrams, and I've never heard of anyone including those in a Unit 2 exam before. Has anyone ever done this? I can't even think about how you'd get one in!

    It depends on your examiner really, normally examiners will know enough about the subject to know some abstract inferance as to what an answer could be. As long as you clearly link it back to the point made in the question it should be fine

    doesn't stop them from bringing it up again though, it could be supply side policies to solve a specific type of problem
