    No you don't.
    No, you are right. Sorry about that. That's depressing, I've re-sat 2 exams for 2 subjects with the belief that I needed and A at As level to get an A* Yaay for Cambridge!

    I don't even know what else to do for revision, I certainly don't feel "prepared" though regarding my section B research. Anyone got any tips?

    Also, how much roughly should be written per essay. I know it's a stupid question but just a rough estimate of how many pages, based on standard sized writing haha.

    Poundland have a strategy of internal growth. They are opening hundreds of new stores
    Also Poundland have succeeded in the recession because of their low prices but in particular their competitive advantage over other budget stores. Their fixed prices allow consumers to budget easily at a time of squeezed disposable income.

    I haven't either. I've planned pretty extensively for a number of different questions, but I haven't actually written any out. It's mostly because I didn't really give myself enough time to revise for this exam, so I've run out of time to do practice papers. I know what I'd put into answers though, so I guess that makes up for it...

    Ah thank god I'm not the only one! Yeah I've done lots of plans but the effort involved in writing a full on 40 marker is just too much. Too late to start now anyway!

    i think im more prepared for section B than section A... which is weird considering the teacher that taught me section A was a LOT better
    I just dont really know how to get full marks on analysis for culture, i always feel like im repeating myself
    i havent done any "proper" timed essays either, ive done a load of plans though, so hopefully that will help
    im just planning to do a brief plan when i get in there so im not wasting time thinking...

    this is bad but because its my last exam i think ive gotten really complacent... which isnt good considering i want to do international business at uni... woops :P
