    Open more shops then if you can. You will know if you have too much if some of the cells on monthly figures show up red.

    WTF you already have yours out t**t of a teacher isnt giving it to us till next term
    It has to be given to you within a certain time before your exam and not before. I do this subject too, however I'm in yr 13 and I am doing the Unit 8 exam. If your exam is not until late may/early June I don't think they are allowed to give it to you. Best check with your teacher though

    it is my first exam
    (i think she still hasn't given us the final date for it yet just the week it is in and it will most likely be in my geog exam)

    Got mine from my teacher this Monday (no time before start of half term) . For the spreadsheet part, apparently you just have to import all of the data files into a blank worksheet, and copy and paste into the yellow bits where required. For the formula, you can just replicate the one on the cell to the left of it. Exam is 25 May (at least in my school, anyway). That makes it almost another 3 weeks before they have to give you the scenario. :O Advice for the exam is to just play around with the spreadsheet and get really comfortable with how it works.

    Edit: Oh, and for the advertising data you get a printout in the real exam. Sometimes you just get the printout and you have to type it in, and sometimes the data is there already but you have to find a couple of errors.

    Don't we all have different advertising data so we'll all get different results?
