    Hi James, I have done my prelim, the marks that I lost were mostly because I used the wrong or missed out command words,
    one major thing was that I never got told this but I did after the prelim that you need to relate to the case study throughout your questions in the section one area. For example if the question is on describe other sources of finance that the business could have used? Your answer would start of like the business has already used this and that but the other methods they could have approached that were..............

    Leave extra 10min so that you can check there is no spelling mistakes because one spelling mistake can change your sentence completely I learned this after losing like 3 marks just because of stupid spelling mistake as it completely changed what I was saying and command words are vital in business higher if you forgetting use it no matter how correct and accurate your answer is you won't get the mark.

    Last key thing is just study as much as you can!!
