    Does anyone know any resources for the Unit 2 multiple choice questions? Obviously because they're new to the spec this year there's no actual past papers but I really want to test my basic mark questions before going back after Easter. Thanks

    Revision tip for Unit 2 macroeconomics. Ensure you know the main macroeconomic objectives. Make up an acronym to remember them so that you can discuss them in responses. For example try GUBI:
    Growth
    Unemployment
    Balance of Payments
    Inflation

    Top Tip: Write at supernatural speed so we can finish the paper, unlike Theme 1 where I think they expected us to write with both hands at the same time.

    Predictions are dodgy. Better to revise thoroughly and be prepared for anything on the specification.

    Go for it! If it's anything like yesterday's paper, it will be exactly like the June 2015 old spec one.

    hey

    Inflation,Interest rate and exchange rates have relationship with each other because if the inflation rate of the economy is increased then where as the govt would increase the interest rate.High interest rate mean then the foreign savers would be better off since by saving in the local economy as a result of that more local currency would be demanded in which case the local currency would be appreciated causing the exports to be less competitive and imports to be much cheaper.
    The vice versa could be happened if the inflation rate in the economy is reduced.
    Hope this is helpful

    I use the acronym BIGUP:

    Balance of Payments
    Inflation
    Growth
    Unemployment
    Paying off the debt
