    Oh and does doing old papers help? Because they are based off the old spec and the marks available for certain questions are different so I'm not sure whether or not it's useful to do the past papers
    You have to look for adjusted papers, quite a few out there

    For theme 1 there is nothing in the new spec about buffer stocks, so you don't need to learn about it.
    Thank you

    What do you mean by adjusted papers? The only ones I can find adjusted for the new spec are the specimen papers. And there are only one specimen paper for each theme. I just wanted to do more practice on 20 mark questions and couldn't find any online.

    Any predictions? The housing market came last year so I doubt it will come this year. Any chance of commodity market coming? 😭

    Hi sorry for bothering you, but what adjusted papers? I've been looking so hard trying to find some but all I find are the old past papers in the old format. Please could you help me find them, I'd be so grateful

    very specific questions help. But it is much better to do economics IAL papers.

    Hi, just come across the forum. Retaking Economics 1 for the second time on Monday - already have Economics A-Level but am retaking after a gap year to meet uni requirements. Had a moment of panic reading about the exam structure changes, wondering whether this will affect me or whether my exam will follow the structure I'm used to I.E; Multiple Choice followed by Data Response: 6 Marker, 6 Marker, 8 Marker, 14 Marker, 14 Marker

    I would just recommend doing the old specification essay questions (i.e. the 14 markers) and answer them as 20 markers. The questions will be similar anyway, so this is what I have done.

    There is now a 20 mark essay at the end of the paper. Also there can be 10 and 15 mark essays instead of 8 and 14.

    I don't think they're doing UMS this year, because the new courses are linear. Are you resitting the older style of exam?

    If you are re-taking exams, you should be re-taking the old specification (but double check this with your school/centre...). The old specification is available for re-takes until Summer 2017.

    If you started A levels in 2015 you will be on the new specification

    guys as demand and price have an INVERSE relationship

    doesnt that mean that PED is always negative and therefore a relatively elastic PED is greater than -1 not (1) and relatively inelastic is between 0 and -1 . perfectly elastic is infinity, unitary would be -1 and perfectly ineaslic 0?
    or is it the other way round help !!ahaha
