the best is writing factors from the book onto a summary and then memorising. then practice if there's time and you'll get a 9 which is below 68%

I think Edexcel locked the last 9 months of past papers, so can't really predict what will come up.

they were talking about traffic congestion so when traffic is very slow
2 of the 6 markers were simply recycled from past papers.

The first one asking about how all four factors of production are used in the production of drinking water, and the third one asking about the free rider problem and defence force in Zambia.

The second 6 marker about why people might ignore the negative impacts was kinda weird.
What was the other 9 marker aside from the monopoly one? , and was there a question on something like increased advertising (if so do you remember how many marks it was).

The other 9 marker was about the role of the secondary sector in the economy… kinda a weird one, idk about the advertising question 🤷*♂️
