'The practice papers represent an excellent guide before the actual exams and they provide a wide variety of themes examined. Moreover they are of equal difficulty and help students to build their confidence and score better at their exams... I did like the questions and the recommended answers... It definitely enhances learning since it provides another tool for students and teachers to work with and increase the effectiveness of students at their exams. It is of high value for students and teachers as the students can better prepare for the exams and teachers would have more choices for their students to practice and provide examination taking techniques.'<BR>&ndash; J&nbsp;Landrakis, Business Teacher, Moderator, Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (8878)
'Provides a similar experience to what students see in the real examinations... Though the resource includes assessment materials, these are also linked to planning activities which can be used with whole groups prior to assessment work being completed. This resource therefore acts as both a teaching tool and an assessment tool... This resource is <b><span class='pickout'></b>particularly valuable given the limited range of assessment material available</span> for students studying this new course... Specification content is well covered through the assessment papers and gives students an opportunity to demonstrate their holistic knowledge which is a feature of the new qualification. Assessment weightings are well used to give students access to a range of assessment instruments covering the key skills required. The practice papers provide suitable coverage of quantiative skills again matching the requirement of the specification... Includes guidance for students about approaching the exams and the content of each exam in terms of subject knowledge and unit coverage. This is useful for both students and teachers given that this course presents new challenges in terms of its linear approach.'<BR>&ndash; S&nbsp;Stones, Associate Leader Business & Economics, Independent Reviewer
'A flexible and very useful resource. It reflects the new style qualification and exam paper for AQA. It will be a very positive addition to any busy teachers toolkit... With a little manipulation it can be used in a multitude of ways: home-work, self assessments as well as classroom tasks... The mark schemes are very clever and reflect examination specification thinking... The data material is spot on. The quality of questions is very good. I am impressed.'<BR>&ndash; D&nbsp;Holland, Head of Business and Economics; Examiner; Independent Reviewer
