For Business? Exam technique practice and a revision book is all you need and you are good to go! I would definitely recommend Seneca for revision on actual concepts from Year 10. When your ready, start to work on 6, 9 and 12 markers. Timing is your biggest enemy on those exams so the faster you can model an answer, the more time you have to finish the paper. For case study questions, always refer to the case study so your response isn't to generalised. For example: If you had to write about an IT company, and I could take your essay and label it as an answer to a case study about a bakery, then your essay isn't specific enough. Use the company's name and knowledge on, in this example, the fact that they probably own a lot of valuable assets, which need to keep being updated to keep up with the fast moving technology industry, which in turn leads to much higher costs and therefore minimal profit. See what I did there? I made a point and a chain of the knock on effect of the action. This is exactly how you need to model your long answer questions.
I hope this helps! Feel free to ask me to clarify anything if your confused on any topics or anything business in general

that has really clarified it for me, especially as i found that time management was something i struggled with during our first few exams.
thank you so much!

To get the highest grades in gcse business you need to be able to apply your knowledge to the questions asked in the case studies so the best way to revise is to do as many past paper questions as possible. You dont have to do a full exam paper but just focus on the parts of the exam that you find the hardest in timed conditions.
