    check the spec, and see which topics have not come up. They will HAVE to ask the questions which have not come up as the point of a spec is to test every part of it

    I've checked I feel they might be a bit harsh considering this is the last paper with the old spec so very unpredictable!

    any topics which have not come up in the past?
    and no papers do not work like that.
    exam papers are usually made 1 and a half years before they get released.
    However grade bounadries will be high due to everyone resitting this paper will be a resit.

    what did you get last year>?

    Hi everyone, I am a student and I am doing this exam tomorrow. By just reading the case study given to us. We can see that the first 10 mark question is going to be about a business plan relating to expansion. The question 4 which is research task b, can be about whether they should expand or not. I would suggest you guys to know how to structure your answers.

    My prediction:
    Question 1: Drawing on your pre-examination research, analyse two reasons why SYS should produce a business plan for the new expansion venture. (10 marks.)
    Question 4: Using your pre-examination research and all the information available to you, analyse the case for and against SYS's decision to expand into Birmingham area. Do you agree with this decision? You should justify your decision. (16 Marks)

    I have been practicing these questions for a long time now. Every time I do them I get full marks.

    The structure I use is this:
    Question 1:
    Definition (2 marks)
    A point on why they should produce a business plan (3 marks)
    Another point (3 marks)
    Conclusion (2 marks)

    Question 4:
    Definition (2 marks)
    One point for (3 marks)
    Another point for (3 marks)
    One point against (3 marks)
    Another point against (3 marks)
    Conclusion (2 marks)

    The formulas you need for the exams are:
    Break even= Fixed costs divided by average selling price - variable cost.
    Total cost= Fixed + Variable Cost.
    Revenue= Average selling price x quantity sold.
    Profit= revenue - Total costs.

    Hope I helped you guys out, good luck with the exam. If you guys have any information you would like to share, please do so. And if there is anything you guys want to ask me, feel free to ask. Thank you

    Not being funny but are you sitting the same buss1 as me?? Because I have no idea what you're talking about 'research theme' I'm sure BUSS 1 has 2 questions
    1= 20 marks
    2= 40 marks
    All based on a case study we don't see before the exam?!?
    You have made me seriously anxious fml

    If its more finance based can we get application marks for incorporating calculations such as calculating interest charged on a loan?
