Hey, does anyone have any ideas about possible essay questions which could come up this year? Does anyone think that monopoly or oligopoly have a chance of being the essay questions at all?

Econplusdal made a video with topic predictions and said it might. There’s a link to the video here: https://www.google.com/url?q=https://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DCh_l1uonWt8&sa=U&sqi=2&ved=2ahUKEwj55rWYwtOFAxXfYEEAHa-7BdMQwqsBegQIDRAG&usg=AOvVaw3124Ri1qbvU7gvSo0uu8aL

i think that monopoly, perfect competition and natural monopoly is likely to come up, i think the labour markets too because that is one of the main topics within microecon and potentially behavioural economics

Econplusdal did also mention behavioural economics in the context of market failure along with the policies to rectify them like nudge policies.

Anyone else here use a computer? if so how do you include your diagrams? I draw mine on lined paper and label them 'diagram 1' e.g. then i put them together with printed off work during mocks but idk if this is accepted in the real exams?

Last year there was way more activity before the exam: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=7339103
Any last minute topics/ diagrams I should be looking at before tomo?
Best of luck to everyone tomorrow, I bet a lot of people will come here after the exam to chat
I have not revised behavioural economics. Is it worth revising now or just weigh up everything else and just not choose the behavioural question?
