Hi, I don't know if there is any other thread about this but I thought I would make it so AS Business students can ask questions leading up to the exam, and/or discuss how they are feeling about the exam and what they predict will be on it!

GCE Business Studies Unit 2 / BUSS2- 4th of June 2015

It is hard to predict what to come up as there is so much content, but there is a topic tracker which allows you to see what has come up recently and what hasn't: http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/tu...20150523074102

Can someone help how you actually answer the application of answers, everytime I look at the mark scheme for a question in unit 2 it makes no sense, and I don't get what I'm applying??

Application is just referencing to the case study. If your answer is specific to the case study then surely that is an example of application.

Basically, what it means is just when answering a question, you need to use the case study to back up your answer (arguement). What you are doing here is applying the case study to your arguement and you will be maximising your marks that you can get. You will get 'good application' if you interpret what the case study is saying and apply that to your answer. For example; if there is a cash flow forecast in the case study and there is a question asking about cash flow problems the business may incur, use the forecast figures to work out the Net Cash Flow, Closing Balance, different Inflows & Outflows that may be causing the problems. That's just one example, but using figures & numbers from a case study is the best form of application in the mark schemes eyes.

Hope this helped/.

Has anyone noticed how knowledge marks are irrelevant in Q's over 8 marks if you're able to get 'good' analysis+application (and evaluation)? According to recent mark schemes anyways.. Do you think this would necessarily mean that laying definitions would not be required if one was able to produce 'good' analysis+application? I mean, I guess this would be useful as it would save a good total of 5-7 minutes which allows for strong evaluations.

No you would only need to evaluate if its 12-15 marks. What I'm saying is, I don't think theres a point in writing definitions because you would get no additional marks for that if you write 'good' analysis and application. I think definitions only give you marks if your analysis and application is poor, according to the mark scheme.

for 13 and 14 mark questions do you do both sides to the argument? Because on some you do while others you don't.

I've been speaking to class mates and we all have conflicting answers for question 1 net profit margin in the unit 2 business exam since if I can remember correctly it stated that that the ticket price of £6.30 was what they had been charging for 2014 season instead of the previous price of £5.50. I got around 14% net profit just interested to see what others put
