    Hi guys, whats your bets on topics/ essay questions for unit 1 exam?
    not a good idea to look at predictions. Any topic could be tested just need to learn how to approach different questions in Micro and Macro. I don't think it would be different from past papers from the old spec

    Do we need to know analysis of particular markets e.g. commodity markets? Its in the textbook but my teacher has never referenced it and no one else seems to know? Thank you

    My teacher hasn't mentioned anything like that, so I suppose not. It might be worth checking on the specification though

    More than that. PPF, economies of scale, diseconomies of scale.... The sample assessment material had a question requiring a bar chart.
