    That's true, but I feel like the theory involved is way more complicated. All these ratios and techniques are so confusing and hard to write so much about.. Like how on earth do you write 30 marks about a decision tree

    I totally agree! Luckily, that was last years 30 marker on Centre Parks. My school paid this company to predict the 5 questions to come up for unit 4 . If you want them, get back to me.

    Something about EU membership could come up like 2013's paper (i think it was 2013) where they asked about membership's impact on business.
    wat is this prediction based on?

    thanks regardless though

    you'd say how it would positively affect the UK and how it would negatively affect the UK.

    For example, the UK could get more sales opportunities through having more members as they have more customers to target at.

    However, with the increase in customers will also mean the increase in competition.

    After stating the positive and negatives you should do a furthermore (how it affects different businesses or countries) and a conclusion (stating long term affects with short terms affects or how the affect depends upon the market, objective, product or situation.)

    hoped this helped and make sure to apply context within your answer

    Considering the referendum is on the 23rd and they've asked such a question before. I mean it's unlikely but wouldn't be surprised if it came up or something concerning it.

    I have the following

    Positives
    The Eu is one market, increasing size, therefore smaller markets within the EU, therefore more consumers to target (like you said)

    Spreading risk as there are more markets to enter...... diversify in case a product fails in one country/market

    Negatives
    small businesses at risk of mergers and takeovers

    -increased competition due to more businesses within the market

    Evaluation

    Niche market businesses e.g. Rolls Royce don't suffer due to inelastic demand,

    For a discuss/evaluate question, is 2 arguments either side and a judgement enough to gain full marks?

    I did not start to practice my writing until yesterday

    Excuse while I go and curl up in a ball of self pity:bawling:


    On a more serious note, since 2014 they stopped doing a second paper every year so there's no longer a very predictable pattern for what's going to be on the paper.

    I've got a feeling the big 15 Marker this year might be the same as 2014, asking for the effects on individuals of China/India growth. If you look at the last few years, 2013 and 2015 had effects on UK firms, 2014 had effects on UK individuals so if the pattern continues then it could maybe bs individuals again this year?

    Just a thought I've noticed from looking through all the papers

    the 15 marker this year It's likely to be on India because 2013 they asked China, 2014(India),2015(China)

    i've read examiners report and they keep asking 6 markers where they dont give you context within the case study in the exam paper, but they expect you to have context.

    e.g. 2015 two reasons why india orginally increased tariffs on imports

    how do you apply context to a question like this ?
