OCR microeconomics predictions

25 marker predictions :
- contestable markets
- monopsony / trade unions
- perfect competition
- competition policy
- XED may come up again as it was poorly answered last year (but may come up in a different context)
- labour market is very likely as it’s under-examined
- use of the margin

Data response :
- something to do with price caps
- environment ?

In general I feel like environment and labour markets may be heavily examined this year with the obvious market structures.

What are your thoughts ?

I reckon this is a pretty strong estimate. What would a question on the use of margins look like though. Surely this is too pervasive to assess. it's just content that's foundational to teach market structures ig. I agree w XED and bilateral monopsonies tho.
