    I'm feeling okay, what about you? My prediction for the 25 marker is to do with Market failure and whether government intervention is the way to go or not.. what about you? 😊

    I am feeling good however I am nervous for the multiple choice more than anything and yes I think that it will be on market failure or government intervention and that should be good

    I have noticed an upwards trent in the level of hardness for the multiple choice each year- 2015's paper, for me, was my lowest scoring one, in terms of the multiple choice. I have been scoring v highly recently and I am hoping tomorrow I do not make stupid mistakes as sometimes I rush and the question can be worded to trick you which i hate ha.

    what did you get on 2015
    18/25 for micro but for macro 15/25 and normally i get 22/25 for both but I have learnt the mistakes so i am feeling confident and have been scoring highly on all the other multiple choices.

    Glad i am in the same boat! I heard that as that was the last paper from that spec it was the peak level of hardest. Tomorrow should be fine and 20 questions is nicer than 25 i guess haha.

    total cost is fixed cost + variable cost

    average cost is total cost of production divided by Quantity of output.

    variable cost is the cost of production that changes with the amount that is produced even in the short run.

    specialisation is a worker performing a narrrow range of tasks, so they make the different parts of a product or service. Through this more can be produced and supplied. However a problem with this is that workers may have occupational immobility of labour which refers to their lack of skill set. If they are fired from their job, or their specific job can be more efficient with a machine, these people will find it hard to work elsewhere due to their lack of skill.

    hope that helps...
