Hi everyone!

Since we are the first year doing GCSE Business Studies by Edexcel, I made this thread so we can all help each other out.

Feel free to share any tips or tricks for revision, etc. and good luck to you all

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.

I know; I'm not doing as well as I want to at the moment and I just hope they're not this high for the real exams

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.

https://www.brainscape.com/p/25EM3-LH-6X3I9
Physics:
https://www.brainscape.com/p/25EM3-LH-6X8VP

These are triple and higher for edexcel. Feel free to share them around etc. Im nearly done for biology and physics but my school is quite behind on chemistry so it'll take time for that

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)
