    From this why is business studies so hard to do well in compared to other subjects, would this mean I am better off taking further mathematics?

    Maybe because those stats are probably based on what people get in the subjects and the majority of people taking F. Maths will be a lot more serious and hardworking about taking the subject compared to the people taking business studies. I did business studies AS in year 10, along with about 15 other people, and we did better than most of the lower 6th taking the same exams.

    No, it's because of the students who take the subject. The only people who take FM are those who are really good at Maths, whereas loads of people take Business Studies, generally only those who didn't want to take Economics.

    I'm doing Business Studies, and frankly, I find to be the hardest subject I do (I'm doing Bio, Chem, Maths and Business). I understand the content but I seriously suck at long 18 mark questions.

    Oh, okay - don't you have to answer 40 mark questions then...? I just assumed you were taking AS when you said you found the 18 markers hard, sorry

    Good luck with the re-take!

    I've done some past papers for Unit 3 and haven't seen any 40 markers. Highest on there is 16/18 markers. There may be 40 markers in unit 4 perhaps.
