    To wrtie an 8 marks answer you have marks splitted into 2 (4+4), So 4 marks you'll get for your intro which is PPC than tell what is opportunity cost.After that connect with the case.So in this question you can show how opportunity cost will affect the production of the 2 goods.

    check the candidate response booklet, analysis would be discussion of a concept, application is to use an actual example from within the case study or from the material you have studied

    use the candidate response booklets, redspot and qamar jamal answers to get you through, the comparison between the candidate response booklets, qamar baloch and redspot will give you an idea as to how to go about your answers
    the video link below (contains both macro and micro)
    www.mruniversity.com/courses/principles-economics-microeconomics/calculate-elasticity-demand-formula

    along with the khan academy should help speed up your revision but practicing answers AND then checking/analysing them is a MUST, otherwise the brain will not retain the information for more than a few days

    I've seen a few mark schemes, but they're too vague. Like they just give an idea what should be in the question. Is it enough for self-assessing my answer?
    And I've heard redspot is not so good. I haven't got any complete written answers, just the mark schemes.

    I'm relatively better at microeconomics. The thing that haunts me is macroeconomics, so any helpful links for that?

    no one ever explains why redspot is not good (actually it is good enough), compare it to the marking scheme, analyze the Red Spot answers, do the same with Qamar Baloch's answers .. both Qamar Baloch and Redspot can be purchased at any store .. Qamar Baloch is also on this site

    use the Candidate Response Booklets -- these are the ones in which the CIE put forward the answers of students who get good, okay and bad marks, i have given the link in message #8403 above
