I am in the same situation...in my case it was 2 months!!!

But I think the exam is going to be fine since Edexcel is very specific in their syllabus so I learned every single thing in there! And the questions are repetitive and follow the same pattern... and the written answers are also quite easy to do since we can learn alot from the mark schemes.

urghh i'm not too sure about it being easy because i did my AS level this summer as well and the paper went bad.
they gave hard questions, that i have never seen before and according to my teacher the difficulty level of that paper was like an A2 one!!!

sadly all my exams so far have been harder that the previous years!!

but yes even i am doing all the past papers as well...they really help!!

Try doing all the past papers you can get your hands on even 10 years worth...
What I found helpful was checking my own papers... so I would do a paper... check it with the marking scheme and give marks... so I would Identify areas I am good at and bad at and study them to improve. The marking schemes are very helpful since they give out the exact marks to be awarded to you can see the way examiners would award marks and this would help you to write answers that gain marks.

I found this method very helpful and effective and this helped me get good grades at AS level which I did in January 2013...

Hope this helps...

Really, great!. I found the cashflow confusing coz I didn't see a Profit and loss statement. I was a bit confused at that moment so I chose Q2 instead. Hw was sec B I left out the budgeting question. What do expect the grade boundaries to be? What will be the A* mark??
