    Draw them with a ruler so you get straight lines- I think this is the best technique. I would also advice using a sharp pencil when possible

    I thought we were considering its XED.

    Since when was it XED? I remember it only talking about the Help-to-buy scheme

    You were supposed to say the effects of the Help to buy scheme on the market for rented accomodation.
    I said deman for rented houses will decrease because now more people are able to BUY houses. Therefore, people renting out their houses may be forced to lower their rents to attract consumers and therefore receive less rent payments or simply choose not to rent their houses.

    However, some lower income people may still be unable to afford the mortgage even after the prices are lowered. Therefore, they may still choose to rent. Also, people who come to the uk on work permits may still choose to rent as it is economically not feasible to buy a house for the duration of your work permit. Also, it depends on the magnitude of subsidies to the mortgage.

    If demand shifts outwards price increases.

    For the price mechanism surely it's just a reference to supply and demand (what the price mechanism actually is) and so you just have to evaluate good and bad of it. Good, for example: efficieny and what consumers wants. Bad: inequality, can cause government intervention and therefore failure??????????

    I did- market will diminish because: price drops- people will choose to use the helptobuy instead
    Evaluated with I forgot.. Something.
    And I wrote that it would diminish because the extract said people would switch.
    I forgot the evaluation here as well.
    Am I the only one who thought it was a purely XED question like on the past papers?

    For the 10 marker I said the scheme acts as a subsidy (drew it on the graph) in order to incentivise producers from lowering mortgage prices which increases demand for mortgages within consumers. For the 20 marker I also used the example of a subsidy in order to fix the postivie externality of an under production in housing can produce. That was a real s*** exam. I personally started revising in March confident in all the topics etc. And found that extremely hard due to the vauge wording of the exam! Hopefully macro is in our favour.

    I thought we just explained functions and applied to the market. Then evaluated with the extract (low PES- means signalling can't be fulfilled, etc.)

    I actually found the 15 marker the easiest question on the paper. Draw a graph and explain how the different price mechanism tools can manipulate the figure 2(was a big help) price fluctations. Then evaluate with the PED and PES points

    It was compared-
    Helptobuy: makes acquiring a house cheaper
    Rented property: what people who don't own homes use
    It's ok if you don't buy it but I think this makes more sense.

    lols this is like when everyone is debating whether is was 3 or 5 and you get 5476578.

    if you're talking about the multiple choice, apparently it was +4

    but dw i got it wrong too- i put -0.4%

    What graph did you draw, all I defined was what the price mechanism was and the three types to allocate resources - signalling, rationality and incentives then I became stumped
