    Would anyone make an unofficial mark scheme for this? Seems as alot of people have different opinions on the questions on the paper

    6(f) i wrote about maximum price scheme
    Same here Can't say if that was the right thing to do though, I've seen a lot of varying answers for 6(f).

    My class wasn't really taught property rights but from my understanding of it, that sounds like something that would be an acceptable answer and I don't think you're the only person to have put that so it should be okay.

    how did everyone find it? i think it went well but was anyone else completely baffled by the first question related to the functions of money and division of labour? and i think i might have fell a bit short on application marks. i'm praying for low grade boundaries.

    You and the rest of the world. My friends and I found it very difficult and I found the wording of the paper was very poorly done. I'm just hoping next week will be better!

    The wording of the paper was absolutely awful! i just keep reminding myself that it's a new specification, so if we all don't do as well as they hoped then they will surely lower the grade boundaries! it was totally unfair for them the give us that as a first question tho, i mean where was our PPF diagrams and positive/normative statements!!!

    Omg yes - the start of the paper totally threw me for the rest of it! I was literally praying for specialisation, housing markets and government intervention/failure not to be on there and all of it was. Such a nightmare.

    There's always unit 2, which historically isn't as hard. Also, you can usually drop way more than 15; even in the last year of the old spec you could drop 19 marks and get an A. The lowest grade boundary for an A let you drop 25 marks, which was in the first January the spec was sat in, back in 2010. I'd imagine for this paper, it'd be about 60/80 for an A, although I could be wrong.
    Last year was 61/80 for an A so there is scope for errors! Having said that I have made so many stupid mistakes

    I'm so annoyed as I only said rental markets and houses are substitutes, I didn't define XED or draw a diagram etc. I am really upset with the paper because I revised hard but in the exam panicked

    I find macro soo much easier. I got 90% on a macro paper recently and 69% on a micro so you can see the spread there :P Economics is my only exam so even though I feel prepared now, I know I've got a whole week of revision that will really improve my results and hopefully boost my grade up after that abysmal exam :/ How about you?

    Guys for the 20 marker I talked about subsidies instead of public goods, I talked about how subsidies will help people with low income consumers and how suppliers will able to increase supply etc and my main evaluation points were time lag, opportunity cost and magnitude. How many marks can I get? I just forgot about public good completely, I am such an idiot

    and you're lucky that you have a whole week! my maths C1 exam is on Wednesday. Do you enjoy economics and think you'll continue it after AS level?

    Oh god, good luck!! Yes I love economics and am hoping to continue it. I want to take all four of my A level options but they are all 2 year courses so my school asked me to take an AS so that I would have the option to change my mind in case next year became too overwhelming. What about you? Are you dropping?

    you guys, i think I really mucked up on the demand for housing and Help to Buy scheme. I didn't mention XED, but if I used to extract and explained what would happen to demand and evaluated, how many marks do u think i could potentially receive?
