Is it possible to do well? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    My Cambridge AS level business studies paper 1 was really bad, is it possible for me to do well in paper 2 and still manage to get a decent score (possibly B/C)? If so, then how can I do that?
    I have 6 days left, and I'm really worried. I couldn't study much, because I had to work for nearly 7/8hrs due to financial instability, but I don't wanna repeat this year, as it's really stressful. Please help

    Yeah of course. Just revise

    It depends on how bad paper 1 is, but if you do well in paper 2, you can raise your overall mark by a grade or two.

    If you are struggling with any areas, try to ask for help (I know you only have 6 days left, but it is worth trying). Try to do past papers, and target weak areas of extra revision. If possible, try to take time off work or reduce shifts to focus on your studying. Best of luck!
