Idk if I’m right but I’m pretty sure ms = actual share/total share * 100. I’m not sure about market growth I guess that’s the same as % change = difference/original *100

Paper 3 requires knowledge on the industry but tbh, your knowledge on the industry doesn’t need to be too extensive. They give you the case study anyways but it’d be helpful to go down the list of things on the pre release. This is how I’m approaching it anyway. Also, paper 3 has 8 markers so you just gotta pattern up your structure on that too

All I know is it’s on the uk sports retail and international sports events industry. Idk anything else. Like wtf do we need to know on the industry. My teachers are literally useless for it.

And 8 markers is the death of me, I’ve actually labelled them as a scam. Like that 8 marker eats up time like crazy… I finish jt and then it’s taken me 12 mins 😭 Does paper 1 & 2 have 8 markers too? I know paper 3 has no 4 written markers :frown:

The pre release should help a bit with guiding your revision on it! Also, 8 markers are only on paper 3!

PED/YED has been taken out so no need to worry about it, but you may be able to add it in longer mark questions to add some analysis but it's not specifically in the advanced info.
