I’d say keep on track with your revision, PAST PAPERS are key in order to achieve the highest grade , also it helps you practice your structuring.

I’d say learn the formulas and make sure you continually develop in the essay questions and use context where possible.

How do you think is the best way to structure a point in the 25 marker. Like do you follow PEEL ect.

I just struggle on what is expected to be said in the mini evaluation of a point. Any tips would be appreciated

Maybe not spending too long on the multiple choice - do the ones you know to build your confidence and use the time you saved for planning or reading back through the ones that you didn't know at the end.

Aim for 3, but if your struggling for time it is better to do 2 that are more developed then 3 rushed ones

hard to guess.
Evaluating the specification there are significant gaps, however this is normally because they will often use a 25 markers, i.e on strategic decision making as it allows them to get a wide range of answers, more than once and I believe they have done this in both 2017 and 2018
they also question decision making depending on shareholders, type of business etc.
