Here are some

Econplusdal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj0UdM30FNI

25 markers that came up last year I know because I'm resitting the exam so these are probably unlikely this year

Buffer Stock
Monopoly
Planned market vs Private
Cross elasticities of demand

Micro: unlikely to be Monopoly, there could be monopolistic/oligopoly/perfect competition. I reckon Labour Markets will come up as its barely come up in the previous years. Cross elasticities is a possibility as it was answered badly last year. Buffer stock is easy just have a look at it in case it comes up. Nationalisation and privatisation might come up as well.

Yeah, I agree with u, maybe contestable markets as well. I hope any questions on labour markets are not too hard cause I hate that part of the course

I agree with all youre points except that nationalisation isn't in the OCR spec

I doubt it, its quite a vague topic area, maybe in an 8/12 marker

Not too bad, I was happy with the 25 markers, my 12 marker was pretty dodgy though

It was quite difficult compared to other past papers but fair play to those who called the exam questions... Especially the gig economy
