    ignore the sign, treat it as being positive. a value between 0 and less than 1 = price inelastic, therefore demand wont change with price. 1 and anything greater than 1 -= elastic, so demand changes with price.

    price inelastic = increase your prices
    price elastic = decrease your prices

    so if youre given a value of -2.2, ignore the -ve sign. its just 2.2, and therefore elastic
    Thankyou so much!

    Theres more than that.

    Gross Profit= Revenue - Variable Cost

    Net Profit= Revenue - Total Costs

    Percentage Change= (Change/Original) x 100

    Variance= Actual - Budget

    Absenteeism= (Number of staff absent/Total number of staff) x 100
    These are all the others i can think of.

    If it's an 7/8 mark question on something like analyse the consequences of X moving into a mass market, do you evaluate?
    Also would say:
    7/8 marks - 2 paragraphs
    12/13/14 marks - 3 paragraphs and evaluation?

    8 markers have 0 marks for evaluation. all 8 marks come from good application and analysis.
    evaluations are for 12+markers

    Hey People! I am so scared for my exam tomorrow! And yeah I have been doing notes from every topic on my notebook. I was thinking before going to bed, I will to a past paper just to get my head around all this...anyone has any other revision tips that my help??? Plus I don't get Boston Matrix...can anyone please explain? XOXO
    Eat fish tonight, it's meant to be good for the brain! I wouldn't advise staying up too late, you may just get really stressed and start to get forget things, which would be pants!! Boston Matrix, if you can try to picture it in your head and in the order that you start as a question mark and mostly end as a dog that should help. Questions marks are low share cause they arent established and high growth, so they are showing potential. So growth slowly increases then your a star with high growth and share. Then you've got your cash cow, which is at the maturity phase, which has high share but low growth cause its already grown. Then the dog, which is really a lost cause. Low and Low really in all areas. Sorry if this is just a ramble!!

    Does anybody know how to structure a 7/8 -13/15 mark question?
    My teacher said:
    - Define key word
    - Point
    - Apply to case study
    - Analyse the point
    - Repeat steps 2-4 (depending on number of marks)
    - Evaluate

    But what do i write when i analyse and evaluate a point?

    Has anyone phoned up AQA to see what is likely to come up? My friend said he phoned them and they said variance is likely to pop up.

    Don't know if anyone has linked this, but this could be useful:

    analysis = advantages and disadvantages
    evaluation = making a decision, and what factor is the most important that lead you to make the decision you made.
