    Actually I found it harder than the first paper, again I would have apreciated an extra 15 minutes as I was writing up until the very end.

    Was it me or did you actually need a lot less business knowledge in that paper? Like, the long questions at the end, were just weighing up the advantages and disadvantages from the evidence they'd given you?

    Or maybe I did it all wrong. :confused:

    Anyway, roll on august 25th!

    i totally agree!!!!! this paper was actually quite wierd when comparing it with past papers, there were a lot of 4 mark questions and then just a 12 mark question at the end. i did 1 and 2. btw for gross profit margin did anyone get 33.3% i did 5/15 x 100, but that's wrong me thinks loololol and for mark up i got 300 % as it was 30/10 x 100 or sommit like that. anyway i wrote the formulae right at the top, so i would get at least 2 marks. anyway, i thort this year it was very wierd, with the sources or evidence at the top of the pages....verryyy queeer!

    But it wasn't as nice as the last paper, but it wasnt thatbad. i was totally pushed for time, but hey, it was still kewl. i totally agree with jamie, an extra 15 minutes would have been faaaannnnnnnnntassssstique!!!! as i could have properly checked everything. The work seemed to relate more to year 10 than anything especially with all the branding questions with competitive advanatage, USPs, added value etc.

    I also thort that the break even chart thingy was wierd, lol !!! i did it tho, which was kewl, and im happy about that question as well.

    Question 3 put me off cos i hate those types of questions lol and what was up with the fishermen.!!!

    RUDY!!!!!!! I CAN't BELIEVE IT NO MORE EXAMS!!!!!
