Hey! I got an A at GCSE and A at AS Level business; predicted A*/A this year, hope i can help! Which exam board are you on? I recommend firstly fully understanding the question- crucial! What to answer for "assess", "evaluate", etc. Know your key terms in and out, and make sure your answers constantly relate to the case study given! For example, "assess" questions require a balanced answer with a judgement. Consider everything: long-term, short-term, what each choice leads to, etc. Do loads of practice papers, take them to your teacher (will also help them give you a good prediction based on effort haha). Basically, understand the question and key terms in and out. Have the knowledge down, thats the easy bit. Then work on essay writing etc by practice! Best of luck

Not hard at all as long as you've got it down! Just learn the formulae you have to know such as price elasticity of demand for example. You can ask your teacher and check the specification for these. I strongly suggest flashcards to quickly memorise the formulae. Also, make sure you know how to calculate things such as types of interest (simple and compound), as well as other basics such as percentages, exchange rates etc. because I sometimes tend to forget them myself, so just have a flick through any GCSE formulae you may have forgotten too Feel free to private message me any other questions I'd be happy to help!

PD practice pratice practice past paper calculations even if you think you know how to do them!
