Does anyone have a particular layout that they use in order to gain high marks in the higher mark exam questions in business studies? Also, does anyone use what's known as KEDAC? (I think that's the right word) I'm unsure if it implies, "Key point, explain, disadvantage, advantage, conclusion".
Thanks

style sounds gud to me, this is wht i do to get top marks:
- 1st option/idea i.e franchising etc
- advantage - talk about what it leads to, this means that..., this means that... make 1/2 points
- disadvantage - talk about what it leads to, this means that..., this means that... make 1/2 points
- 2nd option/idea i.e takeover etc
- advantage - talk about what it leads to, this means that..., this means that... make 1/2 points
- disadvantage - talk about what it leads to, this means that..., this means that... make 1/2 points
- finish with conclusion with ur own opinion.

if u do it gud, guaranteed close to full marks

What I do is this:

Let's say the question is, should Emma Make a presentation or send an email in order to talk about cuts of employees.

First define what a presentation and email are and state your opinion on the subject

Then say an advantage of the method you prefer(using sequence of logic)

Repeat the last step.

Then say an advantage to the other one(again using s.o.l)

Then argue a disadvantage of that method(s.o.l used"

Then conclude why you think your method is better im this case and that's it.
