Don't you get a choice between context 1 or context 2? For AQA you can pick what essay questions you want to do.

yeah we did. I chose option g the one about government intervention in the fish market. the only trouble i faced was with the 10 and 15 marker, the rest of the paper was decent. how was yours?

It was about the effectiveness of price laws and indirect tax in a particular market (not gonna give too much details in case teachers wanna use t for mocks in the future :wink:) but it was alright, wrote 3 thicc paragraphs, but didn't finish the conclusion. :frown:

the 6 marker was basically the opposite of a public good right? so it was rivalry and excludable. the 4 marker i got like 700 thousand or something you needed to find percentage change which was -0.16

i went in order so started with A. How did you find the 10 marker? i had nothing to talk about so i just did defintion of negative ext one point and one evaluation, my point was that its rational for firms to act like that since they want to maximise profits

yh same but for evaulation, i said in long term, their supply is diminished so theyre not acting rationally enough to think about long term consequences
