What an exam. Finished in like an hour! As a consumer of those questions I was most enthusiastic.

I thought the exam was pretty straight foward if you actually studied decently. I for one did not study decently and i can admit to it. Without the decent study i think i did okay but all in all the exam would of been heaps easy if you studied decent.

Btw was it just me or did a lot of people leave earlier than expected cause i left at like 4 on the dot and i completed everything. =/

I expected the exam would be more straightfoward this year than last year, as last year was a difficult paper and they've now backed it up with an easier one following complaints last year!

What were the essays on?

I dont think it was a straightforward exam to me it seemed quite different to previous papers and trials, some of the multiple choice were challenging and the short answers were a bit weird. There was like 7-10 marks (over a few questions) on both labour markets and environmental and then case study was short answer as with last year but the question was worded strangely (something to do with business cycle). The 4 essays were Fiscal, Monetary, MER and how exchange rates are impacted by changes in the domestically and globally.

I found the exam pretty easy but I did not prepare properly for the essay questions. Multiple choice was definitely the hardest part and the short answers were relatively easy.

the general consensus so far:

- multiple choice was hard.
- short answers were decent overall
- essays were nothing shocking. (HEY, I PREDICTED ESSAYS CORRECTLY LOL)

the cut-off will have to go up.

That was SO easy, and I only studied for like a day! Best Economics test ever.
Multiple choice was a bitch though. And what did everyone do for the labour market policy/structural unemployment question? That was the only one I couldn't get. I BSed about WorkChoices and unfair dismissal laws, I really had no idea
