How to prepare for exams (general tips)

1. Create revision resources, whatever they may be it needs to be what works for you. If writing out notes over and over doesn't work for you, please don't waste your time!

2. Use the revision guide to make your notes, the copy from the exam board is your best bet - rather than using copies from other sources.

3. Create a revision timetable if this works for you. Try TSR's tool here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/planner

4. Re-read your notes, repetition is the best method of drilling notes into your brain.

5. As it gets closer to the exams complete past papers. The more the better in the end!

CPA as it hasn't come up for two years, probably motivational theories, will always be a question on Ansoff + Exchange Rates

Hi! Went surprisingly well. I think my sixthform mixed a few papers but on my paper was:
- financial reasons to become a private limited company
- decision trees
- PED
- business plans
- emerging economies
- ethics
- ansoffs matrix
- joint ventures

That’s all I remember, but hopefully that helps!

There was a 20 marker on whether the business should make a new product or launch a marketing campaign (basically ansoffs matrix)
The second was basically comparing the importance of meeting customer needs against business ethics
