Hey, I'm doing the same test. Don't focus too much on the structure. Just keep in mind you gotta do these things if you wanna get in the top band:
-Apply to the case study, don't be general. Think does it fit for only the business described or all businesses, normally it's the latter.
-Counter-argue for ALL QUESTIONS ABOVE 6 MARKS even if it doesn't ask! In the mock I lost atleast 15 marks by not counter arguing. Even if it asks to discuss the benefits of something, you must discuss the drawbacks as well.
-If it asks 'to what extent' then you must say if you agree or not, if you do how much do you agree? A lot or a little?
-You have to form a balanced argument for all questions above 6 marks. For example, if you have to evaluate something, you can't just talk about 3 advantages. You have to make sure it's balanced so in that case you'd have to have atleast 2 drawbacks as well.
-When it asks to evaluate something think short term vs long term.
-Finally, be direct and to the point. The examiner reads hundreds of papers, you need to make sure yours is short and straight to the point.

Anyways, I hoped this helped. Good luck in your exam if we don't speak again
