social audit = an assessment of the business' social and ethical behaviour in relation to its aims. i think it is basically where a business looks at what impact it is having on its stakeholders etc and then they can use their findings to say how good they are if they are positive and if they are negative they hide the results and try to make their situation better. Sorry i think that is probably the worst definition of social auditing but i don't really know how to define it :s

o i suppose if its independant they won't be able to hide the findings so my definition is probably all wrong sorry!

Social auditing is a process that enables an organisation to assess and demonstrate its social, economic, and environmental benefits and limitations. It is a way of measuring the extent to which an organisation lives up to the shared values and objectives it has committed itself to.

Is an assesment of the businesses social and ethical behaviour in relation to its aim. It deals with costs on society-

if there is a question where a comparison is needed between two companies, u shud use index figures to show their profibility, turnover

for example lets say a company sales product A

in 2004 ( 300 units of product A were sold) in 2005 ( 500 units of product A were sold were sold ) in 2006 (600 units of product A were sold)

in order to workout the index number for 2005 {500 units /300 units x 100%}

the formula is actual sales volume in selected years / actual sales in base year x 100 =

the base year is normally the first year

Hope I explained it clearly ..

So far I've got a CBB in units 1, 2, and 3 respectively. I also got a D in unit 4 in January which I then re-sat but I'm 100% sure I wouldn't of even got a D because I did so badly and didn't even come close to finishing the paper. Also in unit 5 despite it not being the most difficult paper due to bad time management skills I also made a complete mess of it and am looking at an E at very best I feel. In the opinion of yourselfs, do you think a C overall is still within my reach.

I have been revising unit 6 quite heavily but I feel that throughout the business course I have been applying more common sense than anything else. Also a very big thankyou to everyone who posts on here, there's been some great input and its pleasing to see how much others want everyone to do well : ).

Anyone else got the AQA pink revision book?

Looking through the candidate answers in the back... most are like 2 - 3 standard paragraphs each, and the examiner says that they were easily A grade! a bit of relief for those of us worried about timing!
