    Is everyone revising all of section B or just focusing on specifics (e.g EU/Retrenchment) in the hope one will be examined?

    I have no idae how to revise this exam at all and havent even started yet...any advice please???

    i was planning to go through every potential question for section B and get a argument for and against it and try and get some evidence... or would you suggest just getting a few pieces of evidence for each topic for example a few cases for 'Understanding mission, aims and objectives'

    Would it be okay to revise 5 bullet points for section A instead of 6 as they ask 2 questions or can they ask 2 questions on the same bullet point?

    Also how many topics are there to revise for section b I've only done emerging markets, eu and retrenchment and no idea what else to do.

    The examples we put in the essays, how thorough do they need to be. Can do we need statistics and dates or not.

    The examiners dont expect statistics or dates; if you have a useful stat (e.g. Tesco has around 50% of the UK's online grocery market) then use it - but it is only valuable if it is used to support / illustrate the analysis in your point.

    You can see some different examples of how evidence can be used (skill of application) in these example BUSS4 essays:

    Retrenchment

    Leadership & Change

    UK Economic Environment

    How detailed does your evidence have to be? And how many examples would you use per paragraph?

    For anyone who's worried about fitting everything in I wouldn't bother revising too much for technological and competitive environment for section B, don't think the examiner will ask a question on these as these are the fundamental areas behind section A

    hey, i was wondering how much content do we actually need to know because for the whole brexit question is there really much content or is that mainly just research support?

    also for section A what do i need to cover im so confused

    Would you be penalised for using your e-commerce knowledge and examples in section B. For example a question in the 2013 paper asked " To what extent do you think that large companies are likely to increase in size further over the next 20 years"
    To me this seems like a perfect opportunity to talk about the increase in rate of technological change but I'm unsure whether it would be seen as too much of a section one answer.
