Anyone found it difficult to relate the global economy to balance of goods and services?

Possibly the easiest economics test I have ever seen.

Felt sort of weird answering the question about female inequality in the workplace, I didn't want to come across as being too offensive towards women.

Going off previous years and operating under the assumption that this years exam was easier than previous years, I would say 90/100.

91/92. (according to last year's standard)
probably be a bit higher - considering all the comments above.

Overall, not a bad test.

I found the women in workplace question the most challenging because what I said sounded extremely sexiest So at the end I added " Such discrimination against women is unacceptable" lulz

no, it was way too easy for that, I reckon 93 would scale to 95. (You'll realise when u see the paper)
Yep, they are not going to give everyone a band 6 lol.

But yeah, I wouldn't say "way too easy" until I get my mark.
