Special notes

Achievement requires candidates to provide an explanation: candidates have to give a reason for their answer. Achievement with Merit requires detailed explanations: candidates have to either provide more than one reason and/or add depth to their answer by providing a reason that links the main cause to the main result. Achievement with Excellence requires candidates to compare and contrast causes of changes and impacts of changes in inflation, trade, or growth. Candidates are expected to specifically refer to BOTH events/groups in their answers and also integrate the stimulus material or relevant economic models by referring to changes they have made to graphs.

To assist candidates, questions may be scaffolded. This scaffolding could mean that a question is broken into several parts and/or bullet points.

Content/context details

Questions in each examination will draw on specific examples from contemporary New Zealand contexts.

Equipment to bring

Candidates are advised to bring a calculator and a ruler.
