    Hi glad it could be of use, it just shows how important it is to work of the margins really! In regards to your question, I think a minute per mark is a good measure, but if you are like me and a quick writer then you can be more flexible with this. The key thing is not to over complicate things because the examiners don't like it, you need to build up your answer slowly from level 1 to level 2 and then level 3 and 4 when needed. First I would include business knowledge for example the name of her management style, then I would detail the typical features of this style and apply it to QRL, noting how the workforce is being affected and the implications on the business. I am planning to complete section A nice and quickly as it dosent require much writing and therefore this allows me more time writing the long answers. I hope this has been of some help

    How's everyone feeling about this exam? I'm not feeling very confident, really worried about questions coming up that I haven't prepared answers to. Also does anyone have any predictions on what could come up on section A?

    My top tip for this is get through section a nice and quickly and then you have more time on your section b answers which allow you to analyse and evaluate. Key is to get section A full marks if possible. I am currently re reading the unit guide and just looking at some mark schemes. Hopefully grade boundaries remain the same last year an A was 58

    Hello- the higher the A, the higher the ums, but there comes a point when not full raw marks will equal 100 ums. What areas do you think will come up in section b tommorow if you don't mind me asking

    Yep that is very possible for example it might be 90 marks = 100 ums and thanks I will do practice questions to those 2 things later for section b. I just want to make sure I don't get caught out by anything in section a and can do all calculations like PED ARR payback

    Hi guys! Was just wondering whether someone would briefly break down what content would be needed for this question that was posted earlier: " Discuss the extent to which Amy's leadership approach is appropriate for QRL - 16 marks". I am unsure on what would be needed to answer it. Thanks!

    I think you would firstly talk about Amy and the type(s) of Leadership styles she has. Then you'd probably talk about the employees and motivation theories and all that good stuff. Then link this to the case study, so link it to their objectives, and how Amy's leadership is affecting the outcome of these objectives. Then maybe talk about things like labour turnover and bring statistics in from the case? I don't know if this is correct, someone correct me if I'm wrong

    you dont need to but if you do and you go ahead and describe the consequences for the business then you get instant level 3. i am planning on working out the PED and payback/ARR calculations and going off that to answer some of the questions, which i hope will come up. even if they dont if you can link some of the calculations to whatever is coming up then you will score marks. this is particularly the case if you get full marks on section A as then you only need like 53% in section B (last years grade boundaries) to secure the A.

    my teachers think that the accounting and finance questions are going to be ARR and Payback, the people in organisations is going to be about Labour turnover (the high rates in the north and london). The opp's management will be on how to improve quality
