    Exam technique is essential to BUSS3. I would highly suggest doing a 34 marker and seeing how you get on!

    The thing i hate about this exam is that its all about exam technique. Trying to practice the 18 mark and 36 mark essay structures is a bit difficult because i have absolutely no idea how to mark these bloody papers!!

    Hi yeah I don't think it will come up, however they could put it in the case study to use in the report.

    Hi - to be fair after looking through the past papers i see its not really about how much content you know because all the answers you give has to be picked out from the case study.

    Does anyone know what else came up in Jan 2013.

    Thanks
