I've not found out my final mark yet but I think i'll get a B. I've seen section A and I got 70% but I found out one of my essay marks and it was only 15/25, so I doubt i've done that great on the other. Still, I think I'll get an A in final, as I managed this without any revision and I'll be surprised if the subject becomes more tricky.

just back from my prelim there. It wasn't actually too bad. The case study was fine, not the easiest i've done, but the essay questions were harder. Confident i've passed though. i'll give it a 6.

oops, didnt read question properly. when i say 6 i really mean 4 tongue.gif i voted saying 6 ..oh well

Yep our schools have normal timetables during our prelims.
We dont get study leave, and just sit our prelims over a double period, rather than in the assembly hall. biggrin.gif

that's excellent, well done!

i agree about the writing thing, it's difficult stuff, but history last year has prepared me for it!

schools here are off fri/mon/tue i'm off on study leave though so makes no difference.

Be very careful of 'exemplifying' things.

For example, if you give an example of McDonald's in relation to a question, make sure that you don't go off on a tangent with regards to what you're talking about. I used to do this criminally to begin with in Business Management, and being honest you were spending so much time talking about McDonald's that you'd forget to answer the question properly!

That is a VERY important lesson to learn. Its the difference between a C and a B, or a B and an A.
Classic advice there man.

I just had mine today, hopefully it went well as all the questions I had anticipated came up. I found the time factor a more restricting problem, but just managed to finish it on time. I did the questions in section two first as I thought I would spend more time on them - is that generally a good idea for someone who finds time management difficult? I know both the case study and the questions in section two are essentially out of the same amount of marks, but it felt better to get them out of the way first. unsure.gif

Anyway, hopefully I did ok - hope everyone else gets what they were wanting happy.gif


Thats actually the longest exam I've ever done lol. My hand was quite cramped afterward - such a baby.

Ours was made up by the department. Though it was obvious that they had adapted questions from all the previous papers. The 28th is ages away lol, wish mine were later on!
