    Hey Guys,

    This forum is for people doing the exam in the title.

    So just discuss general stuff about the exam, to start what do you think will most likely come up?

    I'm resitting this module too! I just started revising for it on Friday and I don't think i'll do very well. I got a C last year but I need at least a B. I'm just going to learn the content till 9 and then do about 5 past papers. Just have to hope for the best to be honest :/

    I got a C overall but a D in BS1 alone. I need a B overall to get in to Uni. So to secure the B in resitting BS1. I found the paper quite hard last year compared to the past papers, i would say i am ready as i have revised the content better than i did last year

    Not really I've got to revise all of producing goods and services now which is going to take ages. Any predictions? I personally think that location and exogenous shocks will not come up this year. Hopefully stakeholders comes up

    Yeah me too I found BS1 quite difficult because I underestimated business. I was focusing on my other 2 A levels which are chemistry and biology. Hopefully I can somehow get an A in this exam. I'm resitting unit 2 as well because i also got a C in that.

    I also think Merit or Public goods may turn up as well. Also as the big marker it could ve Stakeholders, as location was in last years paper. I really hope supple and demand doesnt not turn up again

    Public good: A good or service that is non-excludable and non-rivalry.

    Merit good: Goods that are better for people than they realise and they have effects on other people.

    I reckon calculating the Market Share will come up and the big mark question will be why is the secondary sector the most important, or it could be stakeholders.

    This was in the mark scheme:

    Candidates may refer to:• Security of supplies.• Control of suppliers’ prices.• Improves supply chain co-ordination.• Security of distribution outlets.• Control over quality.• Keeps all profit - no middlemen.• Candidates may make distinction between backward and forward verticalintegration.• Speed• Economies of scale–needs to be developed and refer to Zara for level 2/3

    The question about decline in Secondary sector was good. Although the question about cuts in the public services had me thinking for a while :/
