How are you guys splitting up the timings for each question plus the case study?? I'm thinking 10 minutes for the case study, 10 minutes for Q1, 25 minutes for Q2, 25 minutes for Q3 and 40 minutes for Q4 - leaves 5 minutes to plan for the questions

Hi, I've covered almost all the content in BUSS3 but not so confident on exam technique. Is there anyone who can maybe go over how much you have to write per question/how to structure it? Or if there's any links that explain how to?

thanks!

I give myself:
15 mins for Q1 and to go through the case study
25 mins for Q2
25 mins for Q3
40 mins for Q4

Does anyone know what it means if the critical path changes?? For example, it sometimes says that a director feels it will take 15 weeks for an activity rather than 5 - it changes the critical path but I don't know what that means!

I know that the overall project will be delayed but does it have an effect on any other activities? Please help!!!

The critical path identifies all the activities which have no (ZERO) float time. These are all the activities that must finish on time. If these activities overrun the whole project will be delayed. This is what is known as the Critical Path. Float Time: IFT (Latest finishing time) minus DURATION minus EST (Earliest finishing time)

I am hoping to use the PEEL Technique. With Answer & Justify evaluation for Q2 and Q3. For Q4 I am hoping to use AJUDGE (evalaution):
Answer
Justify
Use the data/info to support
Date - missing?
Give a third way
Eliminate the downsides

If you have a chance, have a look at the markers reports on AQA, always a good indicator on how to improve your answer.

I'm feeling good. I've got all the theory. Struggling a touch with buss2 income elasticity of demand and price. But there's only usually one statistic on this, and it can be ignored.

I've been advised to use at least one business model per paragraph, thats the only thing I am struggling on.

What abut you?
