    Is anyone doing Business Studies tomorrow, and on either Thurs/Fri (can't remember which!) next week? If so..what exam board is it with? I don't know my exam board - and I want to find out so I can do past papers, find out grade boundaries etc.

    It's probably not edexcel then, because I've got that tomorrow and it consists of only one paper...I think you may be doing the AQA...Do you have a case study exam tomorrow?

    I've got OCR Business Studies tomorrow. If you've already done a case study exam a couple of weeks ago, that'll probably be the exam board you're using.

    I'm doing Edexcel BS...Case Study's on Badge Identity Ltd. Trying to revise here, but it's not going too well. I think the boundary for an A* is 78% by the way, a 50% is about one or two percent off a B. Well, that's how it was for our mocks. But I'm doing edexcel so it's different...

    How could you have had the same exam and have done it before we have?
    No papers come out of the sealed boxes lol.

    I'm pretty sure the exam you're taking is the exact one I took...or maybe it is different this time. I'm doing the double award, and we took ours early so that we'd get a chance to retake it if we did badly.

    Now I think about it, it must be different this time. Ahh well, it's still easy.

    I think I must be doing OCR, because I know there was an exam a few weeks ago which was a case study (I didn't do it cause I got a decent mark in my coursework) and I know I don't have a case study exam tomorrow.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    Apparently they changed the time limit from 2hours to an 1h45 because everyone finished ages before the time limit...

    Same here. Do you think stuff like co-operatives, nationalisation and private sector will come up? Those are the sort of topics I got taught but never seem to come up...
