    I didn't fail it, just got a grade way below what I was expecting, I thought I had done really well! - I got my paper back turns out I didn't use the case study enough and didn't develop my points enough I just used lots of little points.

    My teacher gave me structure guide for each exam BUSS3 and BUSS4 answers, and I now have a revision guide for each topic. Make sure you know all the key terms too.

    I got and A in BUSS1 and a B in BUSS2, hopefully I can fix my misakes in my BUSS3 retake and come out with a decent grade. Buss4 should be okay as long as I can keep my research upto date.

    Here is my buss3 exam structure and notes about the exam:

    1 hour 45 minutes (105 minutes)

    4 questions:
    - one 10 mark question (analysis question)
    - two 18 mark questions (evaluation questions)
    - one 34 marks question

    What you write in questions 1-3 can't be used in question 4. You can refer to things you have said eg calculations - but DO NOT use any of your main points again!

    Question 4 Plan

    Use headings for each paragraph (eg Case for expanding in the UK)

    1st Argument

    2nd Argument

    Use heading (eg Case for expanding in Romania)

    1st Argument

    2nd Argument

    ** For each of the arguments you ideally want one argument from each area of the specification marketing, HR, finance and opps man) **

    Use heading (eg. Recommendations)

    Clear recommendation
    Justify using arguments you have already used initially. Then expand using a new point.
    Use a 'however' point (an alternative)
    Use an 'it depends' point
    Suggest alternatives

    Buss 4 'The Perfect Paragraph'

    Opens with words from the question for focus
    Uses relevant theory to explain and analyse the point
    Follows a logical chain of analysis, using connectives
    Refers to 'hooks' from the question to form/support points
    Containts real business examples and/or evidence that supports the point
    Comes back to the question for focus

    Evaluation

    Make a decision
    Thorough justification (keep something back)
    Insight (alternatives, question the question, it depends upon, however)
