Hi, I am an independent candidate so I don't have a tutor or teacher who can provide the pre-release content for paper 3. I was just wondering if anyone has a file or screenshot of the pre-release paper 3 content so that I can do some research about the industry?

I'm aware that it is on the edexcel website but it is padlocked and apparently only verified exam officers can access the padlocked content
It’ on the sports industry, both retail and sports events.

Researching some of the areas on the pre-release might help you to get information which you can use as application.

the research is meant to give you context on the paper mainly so the topic area isn't alien to you when you see it and you can use bits from your research in your responses but it's not compulsory, we did do research and my school provided resources but a few teachers said it's just like any business paper with case studies like how paper 2 was a bit on the aviation industry and if you knew a bit about the aviation industry, you could have applied outside knowledge as well so paper 3 is just the same.

but i would say it's helpful having prior knowledge of the industry because it helps with easy application

Do you guys think that the grade boundaries are going to be way higher this year because advanced information has meant that most people are familiar with the content unlike previous years. Or what do you think it would be to get an A

I think it could potentially be the case which is why I’m slightly nervous I won’t get the grade I want

Did your teachers not provide you with the paper 3 research advanced information booklet where it has the sports and retail information?


If you look at ZigZag education for it, they have a lot of info for it
