How's everyone revising for business?
I'm using Seneca for the majority of the notes, and practice questions for the majority of the content.

our teachers given us all 4,5 and 6s but also predicted us all 8s and 9s cuz she made up the grade boundaries so basically we have no idea how well we are actually doing, which is just great cuz i totally don't revise by working off of my mock grade and now for business we don't have an accurate one which is really pissing me off

I'm doing a little bit (around 1-4 pages) of the CGP workbook - Business is not much of a priority for me, so I'm not trying very hard...

Seemed very straight forward, hoping for some low boundaries for the grade 7 (and hopefully grade 8 too)

What grade boundaries have your schools been using for mocks? Our teacher said 95% for a 9, 90% for an 8, 80% for a 7, 70% for a 6 …

We all told her that will be way off but she doesn’t want us to get our hopes up. I’m guessing like 76% for a 9, 70% for an 8, 63% for a 7

How did you get those answers

£300,000 as the cost for fair trade as it was £3000 per tons, and they bought 20 tons for every day of April which was 30 days so;
Overall the cost of fair trade cocoa was £3000*20(tons)*30(days) = £1,800,000

Overall cost of non fair trade coca was £2500*20(tons)*30(days) = £1,500,000

So overall cost for using fair trade is £1,800,000 - £1,500,000 = £300,000

I can’t remember the numbers for the £65 one.

£240000 revenue
(12000*12 months) + variable costs = £201000
£240000-£201000= £39000
£39000/600 bikes = £65
