    Just wondering how everyone is going to revise for business this year, as my school are not getting any revision guides and with it being a new spec nobody can predict the questions coming on the three papers!

    Does anyone know roughly how many students are taking these exams? I did AQA business last year and there's only 4 people in our business class. I'm just praying that the grade boundaries are low. I have the collosal Pearson as/a level textbook and it cost so bloody much... And to be honest, I don't find it THAT valuable

    Only 6 in our class. we got given the books but ive hardly read any of it whereas other people have done every question in there. I find business fairy easy tbh but i feel like they might ask an irrelevant question especially for the investigating business (gyms) exam

    Other than formula's and some practice i dont know what i need to work on. I have the big textbook but havent read much of it. Most of business is common sense for me but i think they might ask a question thats irrelevant to what we know

    in AS it was 66% for an A , 58% for a B and 51% for a C, compared on average it being 80,70,60 respectively. and our AS papers weren't incredibly difficult either so should hopefully be seeing some pretty low grade boundaries.

    i'M surprised its so low but i guess theyre taking into account the lack of resources some students have.

    Is this for real?? I really hope the grade boundaries are low because although i have the knowledge, i find it really hard to get marks through evaluation especially in the 20 markers!

    well those were the grade boundaries for our AS
    106/160 -A
    94/160 - B
    so im assuming theyll be the same
    something like
    200/300- A
    175/300 - B
    but im being a little optimistic haha but hopefully itll be around this
