Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5406)
'It is a very useful resource to use with students during the final weeks of the course leading up to the exam. It gives the students an opportunity to practice answering questions based on a case study and can be used by teachers to develop the answers that the students need... I liked the question wording as they are comparable with the actual exam paper wording... I liked the way that the mark scheme is presented in a table format with clear instructions for the teacher about the marking scheme... It helps learning as students can practice their exam technique. Teachers can use this resource to assess students and predict likely exam performance. Students can use the resource to understand how examiners will mark their work and thereby write their answers in a style to maximise their marks.'– J Whatford, Business Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'Thorough and detailed, good examples and covered all aspects of the specification. Good opportunity for classroom exercise and plan for revision... There are useful ideas for planning and the use of key points for revision such as key words, techniques and timing to try and focus students and making sure that they realise that the time limit is quite short... It interprets the scheme well, covers the main focus and the tone of the case studies is akin to the tone that features in the examination paper so students should feel comfortable with the wording when they encounter the exam paper.'– L Howe, Business Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'Very well laid out, good structure, all relevant to the topic... Great for exam prep! ... Exam 1, Item B – a good set of questions, well written and set at the right level! Also have a good flow, starting with a simple list, then moving on to develop learners answers, thus helping to generate confidence within the learners own ability! ... Exam 3 – great exam, wonderful flow, links nicely with the syllabus and has a great synergy to the whole exam, the best one in my opinion.'– M Danes, Business Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'Liked the explanation at the beginning about what to look for in the exam. Provides students with the opportunity to practise reading, interpreting and answering questions and then being able to easily compare their version with the mark scheme is really helpful and likely to enhance their prospects of the grade they are capable of.'– F Beran, Subject Leader & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5917)
'A rather brilliant piece of work... Fantastic, especially the use of a ranges of answers from a student for the first one with commentary about the quality of their work after. Sheer Gold.'– F Beran, Business Subject & Independent Reviewer
'I liked the information that gave easy access to which practice papers covered particular aspects of the specification. Good resource for practicing and analysing exam technique.' – G Wainwright, Teacher of Business & Independent Reviewer
'It is a very useful resource to use with students during the final weeks of the course leading up to the exam, and also for practice/mock papers in class. It gives the students an opportunity to practice answering questions based on small case study similar to that which will be encountered in their exam and can be used by teachers to develop the answers that the students offer... It can be used by the teacher in the classroom alongside the mark scheme to ‘teach’ students how the exam paper is marked and how examiners allocate marks. This understanding into how an examiner operates can help students to achieve higher grades... I liked the question wording as they are comparable with the actual exam paper wording... I feel that if the students can manage the case studies in your resource (which I thought were slightly more challenging) they should find the ones in the exam fine... The breakdown of the topics covered by each paper is also useful as it can help a teacher select a relevant paper to give to their class.'– J Whatford, Business Teacher & Independent Reviewer
