The command word “Describe” appears in the Getting Started Guide, Sample Assessment Materials (Paper 2, Question 1(d)) and Extra Assessment Materials (Paper 1, Question 1(c)) but is not shown in Appendix 2 in the Specification.

Identify and briefly develop a consequence of an economic event

We will shortly be releasing Issue 2 of the Specification with this included.
