    I completely agree. It is the easiest out of the two year course but the timing is a joke. Thanks though
    Indeed. You should be very familiar with your Level 1 - 4 I assume, so just keep them in mind too, and you'll know whether or not you're securing those marks. Short Term / Long Term effects seem to be very good evaluative tactics, whilst relating to the case study ALWAYS

    What are ethics and what would you write about if there was an essay about them? :confused:

    If an ethics question did come up.. I would define what is meant by ethical behaviour and how the business is handling it, then possibly argue the benefits of the business behaving ethically towards employees, suppliers and local community.

    Then I would go on to argue what costs it faces of taking an ethical behaviour

    But it really does depend on the question or the business.

    Hope this helps

    Do you know what we need to know about supply and demand? Would we need to draw a graph or explain a graph?:confused:

    I'm not sure on what others would say to this. But from the advise I have received I'd draw the graph and then explain because even though the graph says everything, examiner might want an explanation?.

    I think a supply and demand question will come up, as looking through the past papers most of them have a question relating to supply and demand... :rolleyes:

    Ok thanks
    Interestingly knowledge of supply and demand diagram is not required, even if you draw the diagram completely wrong you are eligible for full marks.

    I have seen other candidates whose supply and demand diagram is completely wrong, however they still score full marks (6) in the question. The diagram was ignored and did not stop the candidate from getting the rest of the marks. Hope that is more reassuring

    It best not be the NHS! I think it's quite a complex business for them to expect us to do! I so hope it's a business that makes a profit!

    Guys don't worry the paper is set at least a year and a half ago, because examiners need time to check and make spare papers just in case it gets leak. We should simply hope for a simple business model and normal questions.
