    I ran out of time for the final 15 mark question!!! I felt there was too much on India, there was no mention on the other BRIC countries at all... I felt like I was repeating myself alot
    Lets hope there are lower grade boundaries to suit as most people didnt finish (at my school anyway). If you look at June 2011 paper, the section A is basically identical so you can check your answers there

    Did anyone else find the case studies weren't very helpful? I ended up having to use other businesses and knowledge for my application

    oh god I hadn't had nearly enough time! I ended up rushing so much, didn't even do decent on the higher markers (like the 15 marker) and I do agree the evidence was very slim when compared with the questions, I was afraid -rightly so- that this will follow the june 2014 where we had to use evidence on businesses from our own knowledge......thanks edexcel ;-;
    ahhh U3 was my chance to score well and I messed it up -it took me too much time to get the hand on the questions- welp I can't really do much now, just hoping U4 will be kinder

    yeah i ended up mentioning like coca cola potentially competing with indian soda companies. mentioned uk producing cotton. some where else making wine.
    then just used stuff i knew about china and india like their populations sizes. i think at one point i mentioned naan bread. i promise it made sense when i used it in the answers aha

    For unit 4, what does everyone find as the best and easiest way to evaluate on the 20/30 markers, because this is the bit that's holding me back from the top grades. Thanks

    Evaluate using MOPS (Market, Opportunities, Product, Situation)
    Dont forget for the smaller questions they look for Knowledge, Application, Analysis and sometimes Evaluation

    I surprisingly found question 2 so difficult the one that was like what are the consequences on UK business on the creation of the creation of the free trade zone thing I ended up saying it might lead to a loss of jobs and exports and it would lead to them wanting to go into joint ventures to benefit from free trade don't think that was right?
