    yeah it was tough, i only had time to write half a paragraph for the last question. I also throught it was bad that exam board asked a question on mean and median.
    What was the stuff you wrote about . . .
    I wrote about the good being a subsitute for the first question.
    I wrote about supply being contracted for the nurses and doctors question.
    I spoke about income inequelity for the market failure one.

    Yh for the first question i wrote the same. For the nurses i said about doctors is a more skilled required job and that theres a smaller supply so they earn more. For market failure question i wrote for advantages that there will be symmetric information so consumers know a lot more about ticket prices. For disadvantages, i wrote that there will be a decrease in companies revenue so can result in an increase in unemployment as they wont supply as much trains. For conclusion, i said it depends on the change in price.

    wouldnt AS shift to the right as inflation decreased. And also there were so many more 8 markers than the specimen paper. The wording of the first question was horrible. Every past paper I did was so much easier than this since it was easier to finish and just in general the wording was easier to understand.

    I missed out two 8markers which will definitely get me an E or D or U (failed the exan) but hopefully if everyone found it hard the grade boundries will be low. It was more macro based questions than micro I felt. What do you guys think I will get plus I did the calculation question wrong

    I'm pretty sure I failed this exam... Did a shed load of work for economics but was completely thrown on the XED question which resulted in me running out time... EC2 is apparently worth more in the way of % of total grade though?
