    Hi,
    I'm only sitting the BUSS3 exam because I got a B in BUSS4 last year, which I'm happy with. Does anyone have any tips on how to revise BUSS3? I feel that I'm not really retaining the information that I'm revising.
    Thanks

    The only thing I'm really struggling with is investment appraisal and critical path analysis. My exam technique isn't the best to be honest. My teacher quit and moved to Thailand without finishing the course and left the substitute teacher with alot to catch up on over 3 weeks.
    I don't really understand how to write answers so they hit all the AO's and get top marks without waffling

    Generally, evaluate at the end of each question (however, this depends on...),
    full evaluation/conclusion on the 18 marker and the last question,calculate data from the case study instead of name dropping, analysis from question 2 onwards. (sorry for the rushed reply, I'm typing this on my work break). That's basically all the information the teacher gave us on answering the questions, and I've had her since AS :/

    The substitute says that my timing and layout is fine but i should be a bit more concise. I just don't know how to do that without panicking that I'm not going into enough detail.

    Thanks so much for the help

    Last years paper had critical path and also had payback period so I think it'll highly not come up for this years exam

    Sometimes they give you the data for payback but dont tell you to calculate it, i think they did that on the 2010 paper, hopefully it comes up anyway, it's quite easy to calculate

    The EU referendum is the day after our exam, we've had theory on it it is incredibly topical
    I've been told that the EU referendum and whether we should leave or not will not come up, the exams were written 2 years ago when that wasn't topical and I'm pretty sure it isn't on the spec, however we may get a question on whether or not we should join the euro.

    My buss 4 teacher (separate teachers for each module) made a huge file of model answers etc. I'll see if they're still on the system when I go to college tomorrow and look on my Dropbox, I'll send you anything I find

    As for research I just chose 3 business in different sectors e.g. Tesco, M&S, Nestle and made a fact sheet on each one and how they were affected by the PESTLE factors and any aims of the business then memorised this for the exam. I think I got lucky with BUSS4 really

    Buss3 concerns me. BUSS4 was ok because I'm good at essay writing and BSing through an essay in an exam. But with BUSS3 you have to have a good knowledge of all the content because there's no telling what could come up in the exam
