    First of all, do you have the AS New Spec Year 1 revision book? I assume you are doing AQA but let me know if you're not. If you are, get that! I can photocopy you topics if you like and send them over email. They have some excellent tips and practise questions on each page!

    In terms of application, I was in your shoes. I was so scared that I would never be able to do it because it's so hard to actually apply your knowledge to the case study in reality, compared to what it seems. Imagine you are in their shoes. I do law and I love the subject and we are given a case of somebody committing an offence and we have to apply our legal knowledge to that to determine what they did, as if we were solicitors. Business is exactly the same. We are CEO's, advisors, call them what you will, who are merely making recommendations for this specific business. If they are a car manufacture, tailor your answer and knowledge to what a car manufacturer would do. Put yourself in their shoes! If you know the knowledge, you've done the hard work. Now use that knowledge and help the case study.

    I admit, I only learnt this skill recently - the last 2 weeks to be exact. I've spent the whole year worrying and it has just come naturally, and it will to you too. Just keep practising. There is only so much help the teachers can do and the rest is to you. In the exam you will be fine because panic will kick in and you will do it almost naturally.

    Let me know if this helps!
