    Feeling quite nervous because there is so much to remember omg. I also suck at the case studies, however I can get really good full marks in section 2 which makes up for it.

    Same no way I'm learning it all by Friday. Think I'm going to leave our ratios as I don't get them & they won't be worth a lot of marks hopefully

    The whole finance unit is awful. I also hate the management of people/HR unit because it seems like it just goes on forever.

    Good thing with business is that if you're really stuck then you can sort of make things up and hope for the best. If I'm stuck I'll just say something about reacting to external factors lol.

    The whole year i don't think I've actually learnt anything, my teacher just left us to it with the BrightRed textbook. I didn't study for the prelim and just passed. Anyone got an idea of what to revise and how?

    I just want it over with. I've been studying it for weeks and I'm sickened with it to the point I can barely look at it. I hope the SQA give us a fair paper; I'm not asking for one that's easy but I just want a fair one. For example, it would be typical of the SQA to put a question about contract types in there or types of information, ones that never come up and ones that our teacher never really focused on.

    yes! they went on about huge investments in mass machines or whatever so i just linked it to that. do you think we still got the marks? i'm pretty sure my comparisons were correct, just the method chosen is iffy

    Yeah they did.

    I'm not sure tbh, it depends on the marking scheme because if you look at the previous ones sometimes they will be like 'only accept this answer' however, last years one has a part that says 'Consequential marks can be credited for discussing theadvantages and disadvantages of other methods ofproduction described in (a)(i)' on a similar question

    Is competition policy not just the impact competition has on a business?

    That's what I thought and answered accordingly.
