    Discussion - what more could be going on
    Conclusion

    Discussion means it's more than just bog-standard facts (price goes up, quantity demanded goes down). So here for example I would argue something along the lines of price sensitivity, there is a huge benefit to education so slight increases in price are likely to not affect quantity demanded too much.

    You could even go a step further here and say that education is beneficial to economic growth so if less people go because of higher fees there is a possibility of less growth.

    Edexcel new specification (10 marks)
    2 knowledge (identification of issues)
    2 application (data reference)
    2 analysis (benefits or costs of increasing tuition fees)
    4 evaluation (2 evaluative comments, costs if you introduce benefits in your analysis)

    All the information is on the sample assessment mark scheme and you just need to modify it from past papers from the old specification
