    I can't remember all of the questions but one of the micro ones- define de-merit goods, compare data, 9 marker- explain the effects of a tax on cigarettes, 25 marker- should the government tax cigarette industry.

    Macro- the 9 marker was on an appreciation of the exchange rate and the 25 marker on falling commodity prices on the performance of the economy. Thats all i can remember. I can't remember the other options as I didn't take them.

    Heyyy, how much revision have you guys done for each micro and macro?

    I'm currently trying to get all my micro notes done and have not even looked at macro-- never even revised that in my life...

    Are you guys using the CGP guide? I personally find that a lottt better than the black AQA one.

    I haven't started revising either yet but I will spend a few months but revising both simultaneously as there is a lot to cover and remember, and as with every lesson I do I'll definitely be buying the cgp books

    You could use the specification as it shows all the topics needed for the paper.

    That's the book I'm using to revise. It tells you at each part of the book if the section is for all exam boards, and outlines any sections which are exam board specific (so OCR only, Edexcel only etc.)
