Don't worry about BS. Learn key words, practice papers and ask your teachers. I'll post some stuff tomorrow

Don't need to revise that much. 25% is common sense, 50% is unit 1 and the other bit is some new stuff

expect anything that you have studied to come up. But i am confident that Break Even Analysis or Cash flow forecast will come up so ensure you know how to draw the chart and calculate break even.

This is AQA, that does not feature in this spec. Please bring your discussions to the relevant page

Sorry, don't have time. Just with 6 markers remember in the conclusion don't repeat your point but state the short and long term impacts of your chosen option

On the 9mark question on cost plus pricing.. Will I get 0 marks if I messed up and just talked about a different sort of pricing? (Can't remember which one!.. one of the ones just above cost plus in the CGP book!)

I thought the rest of the exam went well and I don't want to have completely messed up

You won't get 0 marks as you get marks on analysis and stuff, don't worry you should of got 4 maybe 5 which isn't all that bad. What is you current grade?

I said they will learn how to use machine and systems, then I said they'll learn about health and safety procedures. I finished with 3 mins to spare but had practiced righting at lightning speed for past 2 weeks with english exams as well!

It was pretty clear for the 9 mark question that even though you are entitled to write your own opinion, that the housing company shouldn't use cost-plus pricing because it's likely to end up raising prices too high. so i just said that they should use penetration pricing instead to gain interest before raising prices to maximise profits
