Hi all!

I'm here starting a thread offering help for year 13's taking the 2018 AQA A level business. I took the 2017 exam and got an A*!

Being an entirely new spec and exam, it was so difficult to grasp technique especially with zero exemplars, invisible grade boundaries and NO ONE from older years to get advice from. So i'm offering all the help that I couldn't get whilst doing my exam, this includes 1-1, my own resources and bank of answers. Send me a message & let me see how I can help you through this year

Both. I do Edexcel Business but i think all business spec are similar... as we have same structure for our answers, anyways:

Even if a question in the exam says “assess the benefits... of something”

Do benefits AND the disadvantages. At all times, as they love a balanced arguement.

  1. Currently attempting questions and came across this 24 marker: "AST plc's (the business in the case study) organisational culture has been criticised for being risk-averse. To what extent is organisational culture the most important factor in determining the long-term success of all businesses?"
    Got a point on handys national cultures and how a high level of long term orientation would increases long term succes but struggling for what else to say.....

  1. Currently attempting questions and came across this 24 marker: "AST plc's (the business in the case study) organisational culture has been criticised for being risk-averse. To what extent is organisational culture the most important factor in determining the long-term success of all businesses?"

Can you say its an important factor because with a risk averse culture, a business is less likely to bring changes to different areas which means when a change arises from external factors eg. Economic conditions (can’t be controlled by business) the business would find it more difficult to manage and adapt to the change and there would also be more resistance to change since employees would’ve always worked in the same way so any change might require for them to work in a different way etc. This prevents long term success if a business cant adapt to changes so an organisational culture should adopt a risk-tolerant culture for long term success

However, long term success of a business isn’t only dependant on organisational culture of a business. You could say it depends on internal and external factors like market conditions, finances, corporate values, laws, technological changes etc. E.g if market conditions bad then business wont be successful or with technology its becoming more advanced and developing at a faster rate which means business constantly needs to invest in new technology to be able to meet needs/ demands of customers and make the business more efficient. If a business is more efficient than competitors and able to produce goods and services at a faster rate then it would have a competitive advantage as it would be able to produce and sell goods to customers at a faster rate, increasing sales and market share and improving long-term success of business considering competitors would be slower at providing the goods/services so business can charge higher prices until competitors are able to provide same goods to improve profitability and then decrease prices to make them lower than competitors once they start selling their products to increase sales further and attract more customers.

I’m chatting pure **** but this is what I would say😭 I haven’t really revised business apart from reading the book once so I don’t know if it would be the correct reasons
