Not too bad to be honest, just not sure what topics they’re gonna throw at us! How about you?

I feel like WJEC tends to ask questions that are quite common sense, I’ve learned all of the arguments and theories so I feel like it will be ok 🤞unit 1 should hopefully be the easiest. I’m kinda feeling like leadership might come up or maybe privatisation for a 12 marker

I feel like it will be ok, I like that you get loads of time in the exam as well to think about what your going to write. I worked it out and it’s nearly 2 mins a mark! It’s so nice, and they seem to ask loads of 4 markers in unit 1

Not sure if it’s on the spec myself, but it’s simply the transfer of ownership of a business from the public to private sector, usually in the form of selling shares. The most recent example of this was Royal Mail in 2013. Creates choice & competition and changes business objectives.

On the spec it just says “evaluate the roles of the public and private sector in the provision of goods and services” it’s under business structure in unit one. I doesn’t explicitly say you have to learn it, so actually it might not come up and it’s just something my teachers taught me. Privatisation is just selling off state owned assets into private hands

There’s probably gonna be some maths in there, maybe contribution or price elasticity of demand

that seems decent, with business I find the content decent and easier but when it comes to revising still haven't learnt an effective way of doing it- I just feel like I have a rough grasp of everything then if I apply, evaluate or argue it should be ok. I think If I revise my theorists in the morning it should be ok

Yeah I’m sure you’ll be fine, draw in information from any extracts they give you and that’s easy marks

I think there might be a question on motivational theory/ leadership too, haven’t seen one come up on any specimen papers or last years for a longer answer question
