    For the minimum price control question I wrote quantity demanded as q1 and quantity supplied as q2, price as p0 and quantity as q0. Do you think I'll still get the mark as I demonstrated everything else correct in my diagram?

    I talked about inelasticity, consumer surplus, black markets forming, alcohol as a demerit good...

    I did the same thing for the diagram so I thing it should be alright. How did you link consumer surplus too the question? That never came across my mind at all hmm. But isn't black markets more to do with maximum price and excess demand not minimum price?

    I talked about how the consumer surplus would have decreased and lead to consumption being lower of alcohol. Basically an argument for the minimum price control decreasing the consumption of alcohol. If consumers see less of a benefit of consuming alcohol because its more expensive then the value they placed on the good would have decreased.

    Honestly I'm not really sure if mentioning a black market is even relevant because its about the selling of commodities illegally. But black markets especially happen in violation of controls and rationing so who knows.

    It is hard to say they use a different way to mark the 20 marker.

    Do you think economies of scale may come up tomorrow
    (Original post by Junaid12)
    Its could because it wasn't in the specimen paper, but i think it will most likely be a multiple choice question, but then again i wouldnt be surprised if it was a 10 mark essay aswell, just be prepared for the worsed

    hope that helps

    Im not sure mate, you may lose quite a few on the 20 marker as with economics, most explanations require diagram where as business studies requires no/ little diagram analysis. if you do not draw one, you may only get a maximum of level 2 for analysis. the 17* 20 marker required a MPC/MSC diagram, and potential another depending on your analysis.
