I feel like I wont get any marks for the power and role question because I said:
-> Power is more beneficial for (I think it was underperforming business or smth like that) because having an experienced other within the business/ having more expertise leads to innovation.
-> I did make a second point but can't remember.

Hopefully they’ll be more people, this thread seems to be inactive in comparison to the AQA and Edexcel one.

how did you feel about it ??

So I think I messed up the calculations to do with the slabs🤦*♂️. The 15 marker for entrepreneurship I thought was actually quite tough as I didn’t really know how to get 15 marks as entrepreneur characteristics is such a small topic? The economies of scale was good, my class mates told me that purchasing wasn’t internal it’s external which panicked me but then the textbook said it was internal. I thought the 3 extra ps question was okay but didn’t think they were very important. Multiple choice not as easy as I’d hoped tbh. Gantt charts I think i did quite well but hard to get 6 marks out of one advantage, just application tbh. The external quality standards was okay I guess. How about you?

I agree, it feels like no one does OCR for subjects in general other than for Further Maths, Science (I commonly see this), Computer Science (I commonly see this as well), A-level RS (I *think* that I see this often enough) and maybe a few social science subjects.
