    I'm feeling fairly confident with the exam, if you're doing AQA just look for some past papers. We've been doing them in class and I've averaged at around 2-3 marks from full marks every time. I've already sealed the A* in the course work so it should be a doddle.

    It's going to be on finance material like the different payment methods, profitability ratios, performance of a business, profit + loss accounts, balance sheets etc... Anything in the past papers really.

    Mhmm. To be honest with you I'd just go through the past papers and mark schemes and note down anything you don't understand. Form these into concise notes to memorize, or just try and complete a past paper and see what you struggle with.

    Look up the areas you find hard, if they're is anything you need help with I'll gladly help you, although I'm currently forming brief Biology 1 notes for the test tomorrow.

    Good luck!

    What sort of question are we talking about? Like give us an example. A 9 mark question to me would mean to make 9 valid points about the question. Just thoroughly explain everything and refer back to the question.
