    Hey guys, my first time commenting here...

    How do you guys structure your 34 marker essay

    Mine is like

    For:
    Point-->Evidence-->Explain-->"However..." or "This will depend on..."
    For
    Point-->Evidence-->Explain-->"However..." or "This will depend on..."

    Against:
    Point-->Evidence-->Explain-->"However..." or "This will depend on..."
    Against:
    Point-->Evidence-->Explain-->"However..." or "This will depend on..."

    Recommendation
    For recommendation I summarise my points and give my recommendation.
    "Overall I believe..." "Eventhough...But ...."

    What do you guys think?
    Any good?
    Can I improve this? How?

    Thanks

    pretty good, i like it! but i wouldn't restate points in your recommendation as it's a waste or time/space. just evaluate overall and give your recommendation

    This exam is totally subjective!

    Last year, I took this exam and got a U. I then sent my paper to get remarked and got a D.

    I worked my butt off for my re-sit, getting A's and A*'s in my mock tests. What did I get in my exam? A 'D'. Its ridiculous.

    Anyway, I ended up getting an A overall so Im just leaving it at that. This exam is the reason I never got my A*. I got A's in the other 3 units.

    Good luck guys.

    For your evaluation a good technique is to say it 'depends on' something if it fits the last question.

    Oh no So, even though you got a D in BUSS3 you still managed to get a D overall? I am so scared, I got A's in buss1 and 2, and in my mock but everyone seems to be saying its really hard and even if you think you get it right you don't so scared now. I am meant to be doing business at uni

    doing the exam for the first time but im so scared and I think workforce planning might be the big 34 marker question
    hope its a good paper and finance is the 10marker hate maths calculations.
    did anyone go to the tutor2u revision conferences they sent revision guides which are quite good.

    I think I'll do okay, but the fact that everyone seems to do rubbish in this exam scares me I HATE CPA. I hope we don't get asked to complete one.

    This might sound like a dumb question but how are we supposed to set out our answers in the answer book? Say you finish question 1 half way down the page should you start question 2 directly underneath or on a new page?

    ive always started on a new page to give me space if i have time at the end to evaluate further if possible however i think its just personal precedence as long as you clearly label the question number in the box provided.
