1: 17-18/20 (depending on that tariff question lmao)
2: 38-40/40 - Generally no problems. Pretty simple stuff
3: 17-18/20 - Exchange rates was generally ok. Could have had better analysis but ah well
4: 16-17/20 -> analysis wasn't too deep tbh. only had 40 mins on this essay

Around a 90 raw. Hopefully...

1: 14-15 (I got caught by the trick questions lol)
2: 34 (environment one i went a bit iffy)
3: 16 exchange rates(like 8 pages, probably not enough statistics, but i reckon i explained the effects well and gave some examples)
4: 14 free trade (lots of effects, weak on stats)

total: 78

these might be generous but honestly if i get mid-band 5 im happy

You wrote 8 pages and you don't think you will get higher than 16??? How big is your writing?

1: 10 m/c.
2: 35ish/40 (I made up a lot of stuff on the spot so my 4/5/6 markers did not have a very good structure)
3: 16/20 inflation/economic growth/GFC (in depth analysis on the stimuli but only two or three points of real economic theory on each of inflation, unemployment and economic growth and the GFC) (7 pages)
4:16/20 unemployment (very in depth definitions of 7 types of unemployment but most of them had the same effect on the economy. I might get away with my one page killer conclusion explaining how all of them (high unemployment) affect aggregate demand in the economy). (6 pages).


Thought I would have done worse. Overall happy with a band 5. Maybe it was worth eco being my back up 2 units. Maybe not.

1. 14/20 at the most lol
2. hopefully 38-39/40
3. 17+/20 I should have added more effectiveness of macro policy mix
4. 18+/20 Im pretty confident with this one, did causes of unemployment, economic and social effects of unemployment and also threw in macro and micro policies to help reduce unemployment as wells
Hoping I can scrape a 90 raw

MC: 15-16/20 (some trick questions + others I believe are right but can't see why they're wrong)
SA: 35-40/40 (used case study effectively + studied for topics)
S3: 17-18/20 (prepared for exchange rates so looking for good marks)
S4: 14-16/20 (didn't study for either topic but managed to remember quite a lot about unemployment)
Hoping for 82-85 raw because my assessment marks were 82.

MC - 14/20
Short answers - 35-7/40
Section 3 - 17/20 (wrote 11 pages for it so I really hope for something around this range lol)
Section 4 - 16/20 (7.5 pages, talked about 5 causes and 4 effects and talked about NAIRU for a bit)

So 82-84/100 raw

Assessment mark is determined from the externals so your internal mark actually hasn't been calculated.
