    Hi guys,
    I am studying Business Studies for my A Levels and my exam board is Edexcel. I was wondering how you guys revise? I am currently in year 12 and have been told that I'm studying units 1,2,3 and 4. I would prefer having a revision question pack rather than notes, but I can't find anything useful. Any suggestions of how to revise would be great. Thanks!

    I have tried looking at the past papers and I don't really find them that useful, because there aren't that many and also because we haven't covered all of the contents yet. But thank you for the idea

    I have had a look for you and there are no revision question packs.

    The closest I could get is a business workbook. Not out till April 2018

    I think some of the textbooks by unit have revision questions in them.
    I would be tempted to look at these.

    Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it. I have already purchased the books on amazon and I didn't really find them that useful but I will try to check the other one too. Thanks!

    Only other study methods are:

    Watching documentaries and youtube videos.

    Some paid website- dont know of any for business.

    Student group

    Tutor


    If I was studying It I would either be in mode A which is material understanding i.e revision books.

    Mode B application and exam technique.

    Those are the 2 stages.

    I was just trying to get to the bottom of what you wanted.

    You need effective methods to do both stage A and B to get the good marks. I dont think the sort of book you think you want exists.

    When you have a decent set of revision notes, then you can move to step B, then it is practice, improve, practice improve etc. The better you do stage A then the easier stage B will be. You need both.

    Hopefully thats given you enough insight into how it works imo.
