Hi,
Is there a specific area you are struggling in?
Otherwise, in terms of revision the best thing to do is make notes and try to include as many key terms and concepts as possible. Other than that, practise past papers and mark them harshly against the mark scheme, noting any improvements. Also, sometimes its worth looking at examiners reports for tips on how to answer questions.

Hope this helps, if you have any specific queries please feel free to ask!

Hi there,
I did business studies last year for my GCSE's and got a C which is ok, flopped with my coursework which brought my grade down alot but a C is good for me anyway lol. Anyway I'm not the brains of britain, but the way I revised for business studies was simply by making flashcards on this website (by creating a Study Resource). Then printing them out and reading the question which is one side the card, then writing down the answer on a piece of paper, then flipping the card to see if the answer you wrote down was correct or similar to that on the card. I did this with the rest of the cards. I kept a record of the pieces of paper with my answers to see my progress of how many I got right. I never got 100% as there is alot to cover (it would take ages obviously for me to memorize all them answers). You get the jist anyway hopefully.

Thats the way I did it and dont be put off my with C is your aiming higher, it's simply because I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed and others are more intellectually gifted than others.
