Who is doing F585 The Global Economy in June? Would be good to have a discussion about what everyone thinks of the pre-release material.

Yeah, I'm doing F585, the pre-release material is mostly on inflation and growth. My teacher gave us in-depth analysis of it from some magazine or book that analyse OCR pre-release material, so that was good.

Is it called zig zag? Our teacher gave us that but it goes off the point sometimes. I reckon ISEW is going to come up somewhere in the exam.

No ours is from APT Initiatives LTD, and it is honestly really good! It really rips apart the analysis, and gives notes and anticipated questions. I think there is a high chance of it being on inflation (advs and disadvs) and how to address it. Hmm, what do you think will be the 20mark question? My teacher said it ususally is something that is not covered in extract, globalisation?

Possible 20 marker..Discuss the extent to which low inflation should be the primary economic target of any government.

Saw something in extract 3 that could potentially be a question; Discuss the extent to which rapid economic growth is capable of promoting development.

The 20marker sounds likely..
I think there'll be one about the impact of applying monetary and fiscal policy together and the impact of it on the economy
Or maybe discuss whether interest rates should be increased in UK

Ahh me too! Thankyou, goodluck to you too! Apparently there's a trend for the last q to be on the last extract and the very last line looks like it could be a possible q!

Really? So basically how does China/EU respond to global resource crisis? Or something similar?

Yeah something like that. Are you on the student room? If so, they have a lot of possible questions that could come up. When I did this exam in Jan, the last question was predicted all over the student room but I reckon there was something weird about that because it predicted it word for word.
