Who thinks the papers are going to be about Brexit and something to do with government failure?

I reckon they might because it's a relevant topic that happened recently that they could talk about.

Might be stuff to do with uncertainty leading to reduced investment. There is a lot of things they could ask there are many ways to look at Brexit.

No clue. Could be anything in the specification. I know that's not much help but we don't have anything to go on. Just revise the whole specification as they could give us anything with no context.

I guess I'm the only one who thinks they won't mention Brexit! I wouldn't be surprised though... I'm just thinking how it would be asked in the paper... But I think that they might ask something about the NMW or NLW since I haven't really seen any questions on it recently.

NLW is essentially a minimum wage for workers over 25. Whilst NLW is for 16-24 year olds.

I was meant to say NMW when I said NLW the second time 😭😭😭 this is what a full day of revision does to your brain unfortunately.

Erm no you only need to know about the UK economy iirc. Might be good to check the specification to see. Anything outside the specification isn’t worth your time.

I’m just revising content at the moment over Easter and should hopefully do some past papers towards the end. I think the most difficult thing is the content, there’s a lot.

the new spec is so hard. Like the style of questions, especially the multiple choice and paper 3. Does anyone have any resources for the new specification. Especially paper 3??? Thank you so much

Easier for new users or people to go back on in the future. Should you say sign up next year and want to see the discussion about the paper you don't need to go through several pages and work out if when someone says "Question 4 was ...." as to if that is for paper 1, 2 or 3

But regardless. Good luck with all your exams! :bl:
