    this makes me so happy I had no idea in my mind about XED when I was writing my answer.. I wrote all about subsidies.. but the rest of my class picked up on XED... i'm not sure.. what a strange exam..
    It might be.. if it is you'll still pick up at least 5-6 marks for talking about subsidies so it aint no biggie, as long as your answers banged in section a (around 15-16 marks) and your 20 marker was alright - there are no complaints.

    I didnt have that much time to do the price mechanism, all i did was define it and list what the three instruments of it were. it was either that or the 20 marks and even then i didnt conclude it.

    Hey, I self-studied my AS in Economics last year and got 100%.

    Now have an offer to read economics at Cambridge and wanted to help other students who might need help with their AS (helps me too because I need to revise AS content because it repeats at A2).

    I've been helping a lot of students out with the new spec, here are some resources I've made/found:

    1. Mind maps with all definitions + evaluation points (attached).

    2. Free online revision course (pretty much just used this to get 100%): www.uplearn.co.uk

    3. Edexcel detailed syllabus (page 20 on):

    http://qualifications.pearson.com/co..._Guide_new.pdf

    4. I also compiled the past papers for Edexcel (before 2015) here:

    https://drive.google.com/folderview?...W8&usp=sharing

    I also have model answers to all the past paper questions.

    Literally any questions and I'm happy to provide a detailed answer to assist

    PS: Mods, please delete the other thread with same title in Exam Study Help - thanks!

    Hi Ahnaf, i was taught that when given a question with "discuss" "to what extent" "asses" etc that a good solid analysis is required along with a solid evaluation. i'd start by defining interest, drawing a diagram to help with analysis on the effect of an increase on the economy i.e AD shifting in. I'd then analyse further by talking about the affects on consumers, producer, government and the economy as a whole and try to link this to any information provided for those application marks (AO2). For evaluation i'd then look into things that may not allow interest rates to increase as stated. For example time lag, other things not equal, the multiplier etc. depending on the number of marks allocated should help with how detailed your analysis and evaluation should be. Hope this helped and good luck!!

    I got 129/160 which equates to an A. I'm pretty happy with my result, even though I missed out a few small mark questions.

    Reformed ASs are all in raw marks as far as I know. The grade boundaries have no UMS conversion thingies.

    Hellooo! I tried using the uplearn page but when i get to the specification part I am not able to choose from any of the options as it says it is sold out. What does this mean?
    For Up learn, If you just go choose subject, economics then edexcel A, and then select theme 1 or 3 it will work and it doesnt say sold out. I just bought it yesterday and it worked for me.
