Thanks a lot for these links.
Does anyone have a basic check-list style document of this new AQA Economics specification?
I need it so I can see the whole syllabus one one/a few pages, pick things to revise and then tick them off...

Has anyones téachers said what the predict will appear in the exam?
Asking or relying on predicted questions wouldn't really help. You should go over the specification and concentrate on topics you are not comfortable with instead.

Hiya! This exam thread is great - I've added it to the Exam Thread Directory 2017

If you see any other exam threads threads that aren't in the directory yet - let me know by either tagging me in, or linking it in the directory and I can add it in! You can also find discussions for your other exams there.

If any of your other exams aren't on there yet - feel free to make the exam thread for it yourself :excited:

Good luck in your exams :eek3:

Basically i got 9.3 aswell but at the end of the test i went over everything and realised it couldnt of been 9.3 because 10% of the number was less than the original number so it had to be greater than 10% and then i check with all the smartest kids in my school and they all said 10. something

Context B:

-9.3 %

Percentage of gambling increased:

- Successful advertising, demand increases
- Higher prizes - more demand as inelastic and people have a higher chance of winning money
- Real income - falling, so people take risks to earn the money back and market failure.

25 marker *****:

- Govt intervention, regulation - quotas on the amount of sales - unintended consequences e.g. regulation may lead to less output (due to restrictions) so labour is derived demand so labour is layed off and structural unemployment occurs and decline in economy's income.
- Taxes, negative externalities - crime rates increasing - also alcohol complementary good E.V. Magnitude, socially optimum level, regressive effect
- Bridging the information gap - information failure.

I ****ed the paper up lads. I so badly flopped the 25 marker and possibly the 10 marker too. Absolutely no application.

Will I get a grade X because I did not go to the exam due to extenuating circumstances? Does this mean I can't do A2?
