Know exactly what you mean - have you seen the 2015 past paper where they gave you an option for Person description but that wasn't an answer because it's person specification.

Things like that all the way through

Sure thing, friend.

I'm sure you'll do fine! Edexcel is a lenient exam board.

You mean the different coloured hats and what thinking they represent? Yeah that is the hardest ever! Especially the fact that I wasn't in the lesson and I have a rubbish teacher that can't explain anything, I would never be able to get any marks on it if it came up. Better revise those just in case and I hope for your sake that it doesn't come up

Not sure what the difference is but:

For some reason we're doing 'Applied Business' from Edexcel. It seems a lot different from the normal past papers found on the website.

Ours if just Finacial Records - Financial Documents / Online Payments / Profitability Ratios / Measuring performance of a business / Computerised Accounting Systems.

The reference code is: 5AB02/01. Here is an example: http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...e_20150520.pdf

Who knows, but it's easy.
