    Same! What are the grade boundaries like in your school, (for the exams you're doing at the moment)? Ours are pretty high: 90% for a 9, 80% for an 8, etc.

    Hey y'all. I was @pereira2002 but I needed to change my username sooo.....
    Also if you guys need any information about anything, my form tutor is the head of business in my school so I have a direct pipeline to figure out stuff. Like I have a document with the way to answer exam questions for case studies and extended questions which he got from the edexcel representative. I also have a brainscape class for this which I've been making (I find it more useful due to the smart algorithm) If you want me to send either just let me know. Good luck with any mocks you have left guys.

    Edexcel representative? What do you mean? Anyways, sounds like you've got good resources for Business. Another site you could use is BusinessEd.

    One of the advantages of being the first year doing exams. (Though there are more disadvantages like no past papers aside from the specimen/sample ones)
