I have finished IGCSE business studies paper 1 exam and I'm preparing for paper 2 on this Wednesday, May 30. My mock result of business studies is A* but I'm still in panic because I think I did really bad on paper 1. When I was doing the past paper of paper 2, I can't distinguish analysis and application. I looked into the mark scheme, when I thought this sentence must be marked as APP, it was labelled as AN. I'm totally confused. I also find that it is really hard for me to answer the 12 marks questions.
I really want to get A* in IGCSE for business as I want to choose it as my A-level subject.

Anyone who has the same situation? Or got A or A* in IGCSE business study, could you share some tips?

Thanks a lot!

Same here, sitting for the Business paper 2 tomorrow. From what I've heard, looking at the case study and questions as an examiner really helps. Also, in terms of application, don't just substitute the name of the company or business or whatever but also try to really use all aspects of their products. For example, company GH produces car parts. Talk about cars and the demand for car parts and what type of production they'd use (eg. batch production) and why... and so forth.Most importantly, try to stay calm and relax as you do the exam. It'll help you be more rational and open-minded during the exam.Good luck!!!

Thank you, this really helps me! My teacher told me that the simplest way to gain application marks is replacing the words, just like you said, lol. I also want to know how do you write in evaluation? I've tried to give my opinion and also justified each methods in the case, but still, I always get a little marks.
