    Got my mock result, got a B, was one off an A and made a stupid mistake from not reading the right calculation and that cost me 2 marks.
    I was about 6 marks off full UMS (got about 98 UMS).

    Also remember equations, just writing out the correct formula and getting the wrong answer can still get you marks!

    I absolutely hate this exam. Got a C last year and I need to get an A in this to get an A overall in business.
    I know the content pretty well I think I'm lacking the BUSS2 skill. Does anyone know if there are model answers which I can have a look at!?
