    Given that you can virtually draw any diagram in the 18marker I drew a neg externalities of production diagram indication overproduction and how to correct market failure by bringing production back to Qsoc. I hope this would be ok to achieve L3B2? thanks

    I did the same. I said how it increases costs of production and how they have to buy the permit etc. Not sure if it is right!

    can you get penalised for writing too much? i used a whole additional paper booklet and wrote more than the lines for even the elasticities question. most of the time it was becuase i didnt know what to write so basically just wrote everything i knew.

    For the negative externalities question, I completely missed the fact it was about domestic fuel and spoke about emissions leading to increased health costs and as there were more cards on the road this would lead to noise pollution... any idea if I'd even get anything for this? Didn't compare elasticities either and entirely failed to recognise that it was domestic fuel and not domestic petrol, so disappointed I needed to do well on this

    I too mentioned the increased exhaust fumes leading to air pollution.

    can anyone confirm whether the last 6 mark question was either 'comment on the extent to which the problem of pollution is as a result of information failure' or 'comment on the extent to which the problem of pollution caused by domestic fuel use is as a result of information failure'?

Not sure if it said domestic fuel or carbon emissions though
    It was the second one. Comment on the extent to which the problem of pollution caused by domestic fuel use is as a result of information failure

    No but seriously, look at the papers from 2009 up to around 2014. I could score pretty much full marks on each one with ease. To have stepped up the difficulty so much (from pu'er tea or 'one of the hardest' therapeutic gum papers) this paper was on a different level. It wasn't just the questions but the obscurity of domestic fuel (who really know that was only gas and electricity- why would we know about the effects of that anyways) felt that they were out to catch us all out this year (Define PPC, then draw a diagram that's not a PPC)

    Okay everyone, we are somewhat finished with the unofficial mark scheme. It is on this link, you can only view it, not edit it.

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

    Let us know what you think, and a HUGE thanks to everyone that helped us out in making this. Let's hope we get the F582 paper sorted too. Also, sorry if I wasn't able to accept your request to access the document; I had over 200 requests from people to join, and I couldn't accept everyone.

    Let me know if we got anything wrong.

    Ok thanks. Made an unofficial mark scheme apart from question 12 (the 18 marker). Not been added to the mark scheme file yet and it hasn't been posted on this thread so I can't add to it. I could post what I have so far but think it'd be best to wait and add it to the file where other people can evaluate/add to it + refine the weightings of the marks

    Check your e-mails, I added you earlier in the day. Would like to see your answers added to the file.

    Thanks.
