Does anyone have any predictions for what topics might come up on each paper? Out teacher told us that the Exam boards often ask topics that haven't come up in previous years, but it's kind of hard to predict because the new spec only began in 2016.

for paper 3 it is definetly likely going to include ethical sourcing, ethics, forms of business, competitive advantage, market, demand, globalisation, mncs (and their impact), production, distribution, pricing, entrepreneurial, niche markets and corporate objectives MERGERS! IS DEFINETLY GOING TO COME UP
what may come
- pestle
- swot analysis
- shareholder and stateholder!! - especially for businesses like divine chocolate because they are a social enterprise

key businesses to look at
- nestle
- mars inc
- divine chocoalte
- booja-booja
- ferrara
- kitkat: ruby chocolate
- branding: so manufactorer brands comapred to own-label brands (Tesco value milk chocolate compared to diary milk for example)

its important to look at the confectionery market too!

the thing is its really hard to predict what is going to be on the paper - because its the second year.
I suggest not focusing on the things from last year

I feel like a supply/demand question may come or ped/yed as one of the four markers
as there is a limited scope of calculations for paper 1
I suggest having a broad knowledge and understanding of all topics - as this will help u with ur impact (effects and causes)

- I also recommend looking at market size/share or even cost-plus pricing (yes i

IF ANYONE HAS ANY OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!

hope this helps!

I am struggling on supply and demand, i know what to do if its a non price factor, and how the graph looks like. However, could anyone show me how the graph is meant to look like if its a price factor that changes.

Thanks

ok so globalisation - textbook definition is the growing integration of the world's economies (this basically means that through international trades the countries are becoming increasingly one)

businesses are basically the catalysts for globalisation - they are what drive it!
- imports/exports: brings money into the economy and out of it
- foreign direct investment: boosts economic growth
- mncs setting up production - provides jobs and this lowers the unemployment rate and improves the standard of living - for example, can increase the living way
- technology and skills transfer
- talk about trading blocs: EU, NAFTA AND ASEAN (they make trade easier this promotes globalisation)
- government also benefit from taxation: where its tariffs, quotas, vat and corporation tax - this helps government expenditure
(I suggest when looking at the impact of globalisation - looking at the growth of the economy and impact of mncs thats what helps me out and its synopsis)

hope this helps!!!
