    I don't think to Shift AD was nudges. Its very debatable if people want to remove stuff In lofts. I said subsidy.
    Subsidy affects the the supply not the demand.

    Nudges affect demand not AD as much. There needs to be an expansion in AS to increase AD. Subsidies pass on lower prices to consumers, demand could increase. Both can be argued

    Could someone tell me if i spoke about the right things?
    Question 31- Decline shown by falling employment , fall in output, fall in average growth rate and a rise in trade deficit. Evaluation, the fall in output was minute.
    32- Income elas. of demand for services is higher therefore econ growth causes rise in real incomes meaning more demand for services leading to employment ( obv, more detail in the essay) . Also, rising tech in man. causes more capital and less workers due to capital being more productive.
    33- intervene because of potential unemployment, living standards, international incompetitiveness,the impact on other markets. Dont intervene because of gov failure, the cost involved, impact on taxes. Conc- depends on type of intervention and risk of gov failure

    Lower than that as I'd say for paper 3 we will be looking at around 60/80 for an A

    Yeah paper 3 was odd. Slightly different exam technique and some fairly challenging multiple choice questions I thought.

    I think I got 20/30 on the multiple choice but my micro paper was solid and 5/6 of the macro questions for me were really good so I hope I scraped an A

    Yes I'm feeling like I got about 20/30 on the multiple choice - my 10 and 15 markers were meh but I feel like my 25 marker was pretty good. Micro I think was fine other than the 9 marker where I maybe only got half marks and macro I felt went really well. I only need a B but kinda hoping I've done enough for an A

    Last time a new spec was introduced grade boundaries were 68% for an A. Due to new ways of marking I feel perhaps 57/58 for an A 52/53 for a B across all the papers

    Yeah I think this seems fair. I feel like paper 3 will lower the average grade needed per paper what with it being a new style of exam from the previous spec and papers 1 and 2.

    I hope this is correct. I feel like for me, micro could be anywhere between 66 and 70, macro will be around 61/60 and paper 3 around 59/60. I really need low boundaries to get my A. 👌🏻

    Well your worst case scenario from what you've said is a total of 186/240 which will almost definitely be an A in my opinion. I think you'll be very unfortunate to not get an A with a mark like that.

    How is everyone feeling for results day ir2 economics?
    What are your grade boundary predictions?

    My grade boundary predictions based on the news and the papers etc are as follows:

    For an A grade:

    Paper 1- 63/80
    Paper 2-60/8-
    Paper 3- 56/80

    Yeah I'd go with that - seems reasonable.

    Hopefully! Synoptic definitely has to be lower since no one really had any idea what they were doing in that paper
