investor ratios like dividend yield, earning per share etc. You know when they give you a question about investing in companies, they give you 2 businesses with financial statements to calculate those ratios and compare them, or they already calculate it for you and ask to decide which business to invest in. it was in the specimen paper.

also for ethics, it's those 5 principles, 5 threats to those and safeguards(general and specific). eg intimidation is a threat to objectivity and the safeguard is it is communication. look in the book it's all in the chapter.

hope this helps x

Literally write everything, no matter how small you think it is. For example if a question about investor ratios comes up, mention everything from the difference in the size of the company, what the ratios mean, differences in ratios, etc. There’s a really good example of this in the AQA textbook which should help.

Practice as many questions as possible and take notes on any difficult questions you keep getting wrong so that you can look over it from time to time.

So my accounting teacher sent me a list of possible 25 markers:
Verification of accounting records (control accounts, trail balance etc,
General accounting concepts (accruals, money measurement, duality, etc)
Benefits and limitations of budgetary control (paper 2)
Benefits and limitations of absorption, abc, and marginal costing.
The calculation and use of cash flows in capital investment appraisal
The requirement to publish accounts and how these are used by a variety of stakeholders.
