    No, equity is a measure of fairness, so it can't be tested against facts. EQUALITY can be tested against facts.

    It's only 1 mark anyway so not a big deal overall.

    Definitely. I thought this was harder than any of the specimen papers or than the old style papers. You know how there were always two obviously wrong answers and then you had to choose between two nearly right answers? Well I thought it was really hard to find the right answer from the remaining two!

    Maybe the grade boundaries will be lower.

    Exactly, but doesnt the final ums have to be 80 percent, or can that be lower?

    So the UMS is based on how "hard" the paper is, which is why a different score each year can give the same UMS. But the UMS value for each grade is the same, so 80 UMS is an A, 70 is a B. I think!

    I honestly don't know. I wouldn't worry now, there is nothing you can do about it. Revision for macro should be the priority.

    any predictions for macro?
    also do you think they will make macro slightly easier due to micro supposedly being slightly more challenging?

    One paper has nothing to do with the other. You shouldn't rely on predictions, just revise and make sure your exam technique for answering long answer questions is good.

    I put that as well. At first I put it was a positive statement. Then I thought that it cant really be tested and its a matter of opinion so I put the other one. Which one do you think is right?

    the correct answer was that in involves a value judgement. Equal- positive, equitable- normative.
