    Could everyone post model answers/plans to every macro long 15 marker question they have?
    How to plan:

    Introduction. 5 minutes. 1 paragraph. Define terms in question. (Sometimes you are explictly given a mark or 2 for defining a term in the question)

    Main body: TWO points for, TWO points against. No more, no less. Usually 1 paragraph per point. This is where you draw diagrams whenever you have the chance (but don't overdo it, set yourself a limit eg. 2 diagrams). Make absolutely sure you explicitly use the data in at least one point, otherwise you are restricted to 7 marks.

    Alternatives: eg. If the question asked for good/bad points on fiscal, breifly describe international or monetarist, outline advantages.

    Conclusion: Do not add anything more - one paragraph to answer the question. Always say based on the data, always indicate there is a copromise, or trade-off (eg. between inflation and unemployment).

    Finish.

    Hope this helps.

    thats good stuff! if you are abit stuck and cant analyse each point enough, i would say do more than 2 points for and 2 points against, i think you get marks for briefer but more points made

    You have 30minutes at least to answer the part c) question, so you can develop more than 4 points fully!

    Ellie, we just call it plain old AD/AS, yes?

    None of this SR/LR stuff? I have it on some of my notes, but only like 2 pages? :confused:
    SR/LR just stands for short run/long run supply, if you haven't been taught it don't worry about it. AS/AD would be fine.

    I figured, but ta for clearing up!
    SRAS is just like normal AS, and LRAS is just a vertical line. I should have an example somewhere but can't find it.

    Not very. Mention in 15 marker if relevant, but don't think it's on the spec.?

    Baz - new thought. Were you taught by the Chief Examiner for Economics? He's on my Unit 3 web guide which I was just reading, along with a nice request to e-mail him at his Westminster e-mail address if you have any problems. Russell Dudley-Smith?
    Yeah, he's the Head of Economics at Westminster.

    So they don't actually make these people up. Hmm, he wrote a 100 odd page guide for Unit three. Poor man, but helpful. Too many definitions though.
    Well, that's what edexcel pay him to do.

    Is he the Cheif examiner? Anyway, a lot of Head of Economics at private schools are examiners, the Head at Eton in an examiner for example; as is the Head of Economics at Harrow.
