Top Revision Tips


  • Learn the key terms
  • Learn the formulas you need to know for the calculations
  • Ensure you understand the key points relating to each of the topics studied.
    This includes the meaning, advantages and disadvantages and any implications to businesses.
  • Pay attention to the trigger words. Ensure you understand how you should structure your answer for each trigger word.
    These include state, describe, explain, analyse, justify, evaluate, to what extent….
  • Always relate your answer to the business in the case study/question. This is application.
  • Learn how to analyse by ensuring you can explain what each point you make leads to.
  • Look at mark schemes to ensure you understand what the marks are awarded for.
  • Pay attention to the time. Each mark should take one minute.
    Therefore a two mark question takes two minutes to answer, an eight mark question takes eight minutes.
  • Make use of all the support available in the department.
    For example revision sessions, hot lessons and drop in sessions.
  • Use your class notes or buy a text book to revise from
    these are specifically tailoured towards your exam
