QUOTE(lesley @ Feb 9 2005, 04:42 PM)
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

My prelim was a breeze, but is this misplaced confidence? can you be too confident about an exam? I am quite disapointed that the prelim period is now suspended. 2 months till the next exam? I can't wait!

What needs to be done to get marks?

I'm looking for some examples that show the bare minimun, that only just DO NOT get the mark, that clearly don't in the eyes of the examiner, and ones which would pass.

It'd be useful to relate you answer to my question to the leckie & leckie past papers, which I use. The answer section of it, I am lead to believe, will not gain full marks for a question if it is re-written word for word.

Yeh business is a hard subject, in my experience the general rule is write as much as possible and then you'll be sure of getting the marks. I'll try find an example for you.

You're right. Word for word it won't.

Most BM examiners are looking for you to [You'll hate me after I've said this the 1000s of times I'm going to] NAME AND EXPLAIN. It's simply not enough to use their bullet point answers and say 'this, that, the other'. You need to use your own examples and explain the concept behind your answer.

If you're talking about one way a business can improve its workforce's motivation, and use the term 'product circles', explain what a product circle is.

The best idea is to think that the examiner is just some guy walking in off the street ... if you can explain to them what they want to hear, using the terminology, and then break it down into what it 'actually means', you'll get the marks.

A big problem of mine is my writing speed. I can't write down lots, thus getting the marks sad.gif
On the plus side, I think it is great to have a ninja smiley... ph34r.gif



I don't want this question to detract from the initial question; How important are giving real-life examples in each question. Should it be done for every question. And do they need to be real-life, or could they be hypothetical, theoretical examples?

Yep basically business answers come down to a simple 5 step plan:

*name
*justify why this is the answer by describing the above step
*give an example relevant to todays business world

I posted this thread because my Business teacher appears to be a very strict marker. Out of a full class, it is dubious as to whether anyone will get an 'A' in any of the nabs.
In the most recent NAB, me and my 3 friends all got just on the pass mark. And I definitely did the answers as fully as I could, having revised the material.

Well with Business Management i tend to write heaps. Well "books" as my teacher would say! For my prelim i wrote 16 sides of A4! If the question is worth 10 marks our teacher says the best way to get those marks is to make 10 points.

A strict teacher is good because in the final exam you are more likily to write answers that are beyond any doubt full mark quality

*Agrees with Dave*

At the end of the day you're only going to get out of it what you put into it.

I'm not saying write loads, but of the things you do actually write, make sure they make sense!
