    I know the exam isn't for a month yet but i'm struggling to grasp the manufacturing side of the unit and was wondering if anyone could sum up each bullet point and give examples to use in essays? Any help is appreciated as I need an A to study business in Uni.

    Have you been on any trips with school? Get to a UK manufacturer if you can....we went on a daytrip to Jaguar Land Rover in Solihull and also to the factory where Trunki suitcases are made as it is very local...and they have provided me with the information I use for application and analysis. For example, if the question was about JIT or workforce planning I would 100% mention JLR as they are huge on both of these things. Pm if you need any specific help and I can try my best. Also, have you looked on the tutor2u website or scoop it as there is loads of guidance on them!!

    I have visited a very local small scale manufacturer which i use in nearly every essay. I have also been on the Tutor2U website and wrote down what they have said, however i feel like im not prepared enough to enter an exam. Have you got revision notes or anything of the sort?

    We have done revision as a class so I have notes on about 8 different UK manufacturers from small to large....most of the information has just come from their websites and the manufacturers were chosen from the top 10 list tutor2u produced...according to my teacher their top 10 turned out to be pretty accurate last year so I'm sticking to it this year! Also, they're predicting one of the questions will be on ethics so this will be one of the main things I revise and try and relate a company too...probably Trunki
