Does anyone have advice on how to get an A
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.

How can I pass this paper?
I’d say learn the formulas and make sure you continually develop in the essay questions and use context where possible.

Okey thank you very much
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

Thanks you very much HazzaGT1. So you only do 2 points?
Hi Sonia,
It not letting me contact you as you are in private. Could you leave any advice you got.
Also if anyone else have advice to do with anything in paper 1.
Original post by tutorsonia
Yup contact me
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

Has anyone got any predictions for the 25 markers (possible topics) that could come up this year?

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.
Has anyone got business examples linked to each part of the specification for business, like notes on it?
