Heyyyyyyyyyyyy~!!! I'm currently a Year 10 transitioning into Year 11 and I REALLY, REALLY need help for business studies. Although I get reasonably good grades in Business studies without studying (maybee 6 - 7s), I'm not willing to take a gamble in my GCSE exam and not revise. However, due to me always getting decent grades, I've NOT A SINGLE CLUE how to revise. Any advice is helpful please~!! BTW, my exam board is AQA

I do business a level, and although I'm on a different exam board than you I've found looking at real life examples helpful. such as looking at Mcdonalds and seeing if what organisational structure its got or if its a franchise. All of that really because once you can link it to your experiences you'll have solid knowledge because you know the application behind it. if you've got any other questions ill try to help!

I only got an A in business studies 2 years ago but what I remember is that the difference from a B and an A or A* are keywords and confidence in what you're trying to say. Business Studies is partially common sense once you have the basic understandings, from what you're telling me you have that common sense getting 6s and 7s in your tests. I could be wrong however and you could be getting marks from just knowledge and no application, the best way to find out your weaknesses is to do a couple test papers and mark them yourself. Look at the mark-scheme and maybe ask a teacher if you don't know what the mark-scheme is telling you. Good luck in your revision your gonna do great if you start to slowly integrate revision with your school work now, if you want to chat more about this dm me; I remember struggling with business revision too

yes! definately in all of your essays you have to include Buzzwords and above all else context. Theres no point writing an essay about Cadburys if a few words could be changed to make it about Apple.

The best thing is to heavily concentrate in areas where you think you have difficulties. That way you will even get more better grades. You can also your lecturer questions where you feel you do not understand. I am always here for any advice you need.
