    I didn't think it was easy but I got 89 UMS overall. Maybe it's just the way they answered it, might not have been what the examiners were looking for?

    Maybe it was. It did make me laugh so much when I seen the Google mini case study, what everyone researched anyway. Only 2.7% of business studies students got A*s that's well low.

    I'm getting priority remark tomorrow. I agree that business is easy but it is hard to do well because of the way they mark it!

    Smashed it, 100UMS, A* overall! Still don't understand how I got a B/C in Unit 1/2 and 100UMS in both Unit 3/4. The case study was great though, Google was the perfect case study particularly with a question on how leadership affects culture. Hope everyone else did well!

    I was getting A's and B's in my mocks for BUSS2, revised more than I did for BUSS1 and came out with an E when I got an A for BUSS1. Did this happen to anyone else? I really don't think my work was an E grade, even at my worst its usually a C so this was a real shock. Definitely asking for my paper back.
    I really do not know what went on with this exam. I revised a lot for BUSS2, more than I did for BUSS1 (I got an A in BUSS1). I came out with a C?? I got A's in the mocks which was almost full UMS. :confused:

    I did priority remark but I am really worried that it won't go up. Has anybody had experience on getting this remarked? I think it'll just go down to be honest.

    I'm only 1.5 marks off an overall C.

    Haha no problem . I don't mind BUSS3. I have already done a mock on it and my technique was wrong (must be from the long summer :P), but I still managed to pull a C grade. I was told my knowledge is there, luckily haha. I have touched BUSS4, learnt it for about 3 weeks now, it doesn't seem that bad, although a lot of research is required :P

    All I can say from experience is get your exam technique spot on (and revision obviously). For some reason Business exams give you very little time to actually write the damned thing. Practice doing it under timed conditions because I really began to struggle and one of my answers suffered, luckily I did OK because of my other answers but you probably will be pushed for time.

    Ah okay, how was your AS grade? And wow you've covered alot of theory. C is good especially as you've got 6 months to get the grade up. I always have trouble evaluating in business -__-

    My overall AS grade was a B (I think 14UMS off an A?). Theory wise, yeah a lot has been covered :P. Evaluating for me is my weak point for business, I used to be so good at doing it, but now, it's just gone downhill... I can score high in analysis though, so I don't have to worry about that.
