Hi!
I am revising for the business papers and hoping to get an A* on tickbox and and A on written, and hopefully get an A* overall due to my coursework. What I'm wondering is, is how are you revising for the business exams? And does anyone have any predictions of what could come up??
Thanks a lot

From my understanding it really varies each year. I can't remember which years I'm referring to, but across two consecutive years, an A* in one was 36, and then in the next it was 39!! (with 38 being an A)

I don't think they could push it up to a full 40/40 for unit 1 though, so I'd say a a safe score would be 38(ish)

I'm not really revising for multi choice it is honestly common sense in most areas. And I have physics so I am prioritising that.
But I'm going over the types of tax tomorrow morning and also long term short term finances as these are what I sometimes find difficult.

They often try to include topics that are relative (and kinda trendy) in a way. For example the UK is in a recession at the moment so expect questions to do with the UK's economic activity and how it affects the costs to small businesses. Remember, is there is a low interest rate, there will be more consumer spending and less saving. In terms of how and what to revise, it never too late to do 2 or a few of the latest business exams and mark them. as long as its not 'cramming it in'. It is also very important to get enough sleep for tomorrow and to have breakfast.

I hope this helps and good luck!

moe, student.

I usually get 38-39 on multiple choice but I'm still going to revise around 10pm for an hour hopefully I'll get an A* overall cos I've got physics tomorrow too. The things about unit 1 is there are loads of distractions that can trip you up when you think you did the right thing.

If you have a Casio calculator just click 'alpha' followed by the letters. Put commas/dashes between each question. That's what I am doing and so is a lot of other people!

I have done all the past papers for Business unit 1. But like many others, need to prioritise Physics :/
Which other unit are you doing, because my Unit 5 exam is June 10th?

Just make sure you use all of the time you have and keep going over your answers, if you're stuck leave the question and answer it last when you've finished the ones you're confident with because you'll have more time! Hope this helps
