My school is actually one of the highest performing public schools in Scotland... although, that's in general. The teacher isn't terrible.

yeh your right - you have obviously "fooled" yourself into thinking that your poor mark was only because of the marking!

One person got an A in my class.
It is encouraging to know that we were marked far too harshly, considering what grades you both claim to have gotten.

There really is no need to say that we "claim".
You don't evenknow me so i think it is hardly right that you can doubt my honesty and integrity when saying what grade i got. Plus, as people who know me know, even if i got a bad grade then i wouldn't hide it i would just say and not make excuses!

Eh, it was merely skillful employment of words to make my view seem even more dubious.

If I got a bad grade I would hide it.... oops.

I wouldn't have reason to doubt thee. I list these so much, but my reasons for doing badly is the following;
-Strict marker
-Complete lack of examples; they didn't ask for them... still supposed to provide them.
-Probably solved for the most part by the above, I didn't 'expand' my answers enough; I only gave answers as deep as the answering scheme. Word-for-word in some cases, but doing so didn't get ANY marks.
-Slow writing speed, although if I still could've got an A if I'd done something about the other points (eg. replace marker! Bwahahaha!).



I post this as indirect advice for anyone else too.

In the case study I tend to leave the first question to the end and do the rest first. Also when I do come to the First question I take a seperate sheet of paper for each heading, this way I can just read through the case study and mark them down as i see them rather than tryign to fit more than one on each page and running out of room or only looking for one at a time.

Hope that helps

A seperate sheet o paper for each heading??? The question is usually only worth 10 marks! Which means at most 3 thing under each heading!

Yeah, but it means you don't miss-judge how much room you need for each, You may have one or two that are quite long under one heading and you don't leave enough room. It also (according to our teacher) makes it easier to mark

When I did my prelim we hadn't recieved our past papers yet. I'd never seen anything like the exam and freaked out but I still got a pass. In fact I was one mark from a B. I then studied like hell, teaching myself much of the course and did ok in the final.

Doing the crash next year, any more tips on how to get into the course? Is it as common sense as I'm told?

Well Aisha, I am very confident about the Business Management Exam on the 3rd of June, which also happens to be my Birthday! I'm sure we will both pass as we have had a brilliant year with our wonderful teacher Mrs Jackson at Whitburn Academy tongue.gif dry.gif lol.

The case study is the only section which concerns me, but with a little revision it can be done! Woohooo!

Well Claire, i also found the NAB's easy, so i suggest that if you do some extra revision using the hsn notes, and the Higher Business Management text book then you should be looking at receiving a good grade!

To be honest i have found this boring as well but you just have to suffer it. The course itself is easy you just have to remember all of the information! wacko.gif

Just read over the main notes and i am sure you'll be fine, have confidence in yourself!!!!

Yeah, having faith in yourself is the most important thing in your life, as well as in your exams. Tell yourself you can do it, as with a little bit of effort you will do it. The materials are all there to be revised, so just put in a little extra work! rolleyes.gif
