    I have a 15 hour exam split up in 5, 3 hour sessions in about 3 days. I basically have to go in and type up, from memory except for some finance figures, a complete business plan which I have done as a coursework and is around 20 pages long. I'm allowed nothing else into the exam and I did make some notes on the full coursework (taking up only 2 pages surprisingly).
    Does anyone else have this exam soon or already done? Can someone give me some advice or suggestions on how to keep hand muscles alive for enough time?

    I feel sorry for you. I do AQA Applied Business which is 2 exams (1 AS, 1 A2) and 4 pieces of coursework (2 AS, 2 A2).
    Looks like what you're doing is kind of half coursework, half exam lol

    Good luck!

    Thanks. Actually it's similar; 4 courseworks, 1 exam and 1 exam coursework (which is the one I'm about to do).

    Okay I started the coursework today and managed to do 11 pages in 3 hours; approximately 6000 words. I did have a muscle strain afterwards.

    Yeah dans, I finished it today. Got to just print it off in the next and last 3 hour session I got. Found a few mistakes but didn't take me long to correct. How's yours coming on?

    I can imagine. And now the only Business Studies Exam we got to study for is Unit 1, which I think is quite easy.
