You could either start from the back as people usually don't finish (Section C)
Or you can start from the front 90 marks = 90 minutes, so 1 mark a minute!
On a 3 mark question = 3 minutes
and so on!

Good luck

This exams gonner be straight forward and have the same layout as all the other exams. ANALYSE all past papers check the structure and then practice how to answer the questions check mark schemes and check what they are asking people always read the question and interpret it differently, your answer may be right however it does not suit the questions so always check if your answer directly relates to the question being asked. LEARN THE COMMAND WORDS, I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. The command words are words like 'define' 'describe' 'analyse' 'discuss' and 'compare' each of these require different ways of answering and once you learn the structre of how to answer these questions there is no reason why you shouldn't get full marks. There is also a cycle, if you are stuck see if it referring to money and profits and revenue, it always does, just say the following: If price increases revenue may decrease however profits will increase... if raw materials price decreases then revenue increases and profits increase... stuff like that <<<<< the aim is always to make more profit so try and describe how that aim is achieved. For section C information is given and its often common sense. Section A is going to be about something like the 4 Ps or Boston Matrix where they give 4 choices and you choose one then probably talk about it and them and how its used ect... it will then go on to talk about other businesses and probably about how to increase profits and about product life time ect... Section B will be about 1 business and will ask questions about how it is possibly run and most definitely there will be a calcuation questions probably calculating revenue proft ect... Also there will most likely be a comparison question here.
JUST ANALYSE ALL PAST PAPERS THERES A PATTERN!!!!!

The patterns is basic and straight forward you could put together 2 past papers and notice theres a set structre.

Section C is about a business and how it can proabably do better ect... Most information from the source

Section B is also about a business of some sort and you will be given definitions and calculations (100%) to work out and then about how it could improve or give you a certain situation and then how it affects the business.

Section A is all the marketing stuff like the marketing mix the 4Ps first question always multiple choice followed by a few questions based on the multiple.

It was actually decent i got 73/100 according to the unofficial mark scheme.
A total of 136 in both papers according to an unofficial mark scheme. I'm praying an A is a low 130!

What about you?
