was a fall in demand from d1 to d2, and the mean was 6pound 37p or some ****

i think i got 3/4 on the calculation as messed up the nearest penny which is frustrating but yep i did that fall in demand.
5. Mean was 6.29, as the answer was 6.287 for calculation, and it wanted to nearest penny.
And yes 4 marker was fall in demand
6. for the 4 diagrams showing average cost curves! which one did you tick

I got the same answer, £6.29 to the nearest penny.
For the diagram question, I shifted to the demand curve to the left.
For the data analysis question, I stated the highest values and the overall trend

The one that was downward sloping, which I think was Option C
9. I got £6.29 for the mean and I also picked C for the LRAC curve question
10. Can anybody post any MCQs they remember? Found them quite difficult.
11. What did everyone get for the multiple choice question about price elasticity of supply? I picked D (160 units)

-160? i put 240
13. For the 8 marker on context 1, does comparing the second highest contributer to UK electricity production in each year count as "significant data"?
14. (Original post by Bigpaddy27)
-160? i put 240
It was a 20% increase off of 200 therefore 240 is the correct answer.
15. Can anyone remember the answer to the multiple choice question about labour productivity?

whats question was this?? mean??? i don't remember calculating anything

whats question was this?? mean??? i don't remember calculating anything
It was the mean question, context 2
18. I messed up on the 10 marker for context two big time.
I shifted the demand curve instead and said the tax would reduce demand for cigarettes because I'm stupid but i valid points about the elasticity of the demand curve due to addictive properties and explained the diagram also adding relevant application and definitions.
So will I get awarded 0 marks for this error as it is annoying me

demand does shift downwards (left).and diagram is only worth 4 marks if the whole thing is right, assuming you got the labels right I'm sure you got 2-3/4

you definitely won't get 0/10 for a mistake, they dont judge on errors, they judge on whats there.

Thanks that takes some stress off lol and i shifted demand inwards which is good. I got confused because the question was asking about consumption and i ended up shifting the demand curve inwards but hope it don't effect my grade to much
