Hello, welcome to the General Questions thread for Economics, Business and Management.

This thread is for questions of a non-specific nature, such as:

"Is <subject> hard?", "Will I be able to do well at <subject>?" etc.

If you want to ask a specific question about a particular topic, or want
help with a question, then feel free to start a new thread.


This will help to de-clutter the Academic Help forums, and make them much easier to use.

Hello all! I've just started AS Business Studies AQA, I never did it for GCSEs so its a whole new topic for myself to embark on !

I've heard people say its quite easy, but i seeing that its almost no coursework and 100% exam based, Is there a general way of answering most questions in Business studies?

Define, Explain, Cost and Benefits and add an example?

Well, I have to say, i'm nervous

There is a set structure to answering any Business Studies question:

Level 1 (Knowledge): A simple statement explaining something you've learnt in the course.
Level 2 (Application): Apply that knowledge to the case study you are given (this can be as simple as mentioning the company name in your answer)
Level 3 (Analysis): Explaining what the situation means for the business in the case study (what has/will happen?)
Level 4 (Evaluation): When you have explained several points, come to a conclusion about which is the best for the business and why - this is normally your opinion, there is never a wrong answer if it is backed up by an explanation.

Once you get the hang of answering the questions, you will be fine - the subject becomes a whole lot easier then

Thank you! ! That’s a pretty straight forward technique, I had something in mind along those lines, but what examiners look for can always vary from course to course!

Hey, i'm starting a degree in Business and Management. I was just wondering how, if any, the structure of an essay answer differs between A-Level and Degree level.

You give the structure of an essay answer a couple of posts up, i just wondered if this would change anyway for a Business and management essay question? Thanks

THE ULTIMATE HOW TO ANSWER BUSINESS TECHNIQUE

basically goes down like this:

Explain what the main thing is in the question e.g. if it's saying "what are the advantages of a plc over a ltd" you explain what a plc and and ltd are. Then when you think u have finished explaining, expand on it just a little more.

Apply this to the case that your doing.

explain 2 clear advantages and expand on them again when you think you have finished and 2 clear disadvantages and expand on them again when you think you have finished .

then write "HOWEVER, IT DEPENDS" and write what it depends on. thats pure evaluation there.

then write a way that it could be solved. and hey presto second part of evaluation




there ya go

I dont know where you can find IB material, but its widley accepted IB is a slightly higher level than A-Level. I'm sure you can get questions from A-level papers.
The AQA website has free past papers.

This link will take you straight to economics past papers

If you still cant find what your looking for PM me and I will see what I can do.

Define Kaizen, discuss its effects, say why it will be of benefit to the company - job done.
e.g
Continual changes
Consulting at regular periods
Not causing mass upheaval
etc.
