    doesn't stop them from bringing it up again though, it could be supply side policies to solve a specific type of problem
    i really hope you're right, supply side policies are a blessing

    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!
    Hi all,

    Thanks for the kind comments! Just a quick note on that video- I've grabbed the first 4:30 from my unit 1 video, hence the reference to externalities! I've annotated the video within the last hour, apologies for the confusion!

    My unit 2 evaluation video will be uploaded within a couple of day.

    Is it just me who find the 10 or 14 marker actually harder than the 30 one?

    Me too, this is because you might find it hard evaluating the data and applying to the case study, usually a 30 marker is generic and requires generic analysis and evaluation that you can learn from a textbook

    Yeah, like sometimes I actually got stuck on them. Damn!
    Sometimes I don't even know how marks will be allocated.

    I find the questions harder to understand on unit 2, I can never work out exactly what it is they are looking for -_-

    tbh I prefer a monetary policy one, supply side I struggle with sometimes. Also, where is the line drawn between some supply side that are also fiscal??

    Yeah I hope so. It is always like that for me after I stop learning something for a while. Like I was pretty good at Unit 1, and then somehow stuck after learning Unit 2. I started revising for it again without learning anything for Unit 2; as a result, Unit 1 became pretty fine and once again, stuck on Unit 2.
    Actually stressed now

    I am revising macroeconomic policy instruments and just wondering which one (D Side or S Side policies) is more likely to come up
    I am really depending on unit 2 to bring up my marks since ik I failed unit 1 :'(
    heeeeelpppp

    actually both might come up by discussing conflict? but which one does edexcel favour? or should I just revise both of them equally and stop being lazy

    i heard supply side will be a 30 markers, however just make sure you fully understand how achieving one macroeconomic objective may hinder the progress of another. This is a really tricky part of the spec to explain under time pressures
