Easy tips for 9 mark questions?

Hello!

I have my AQA Business Studies Unit 1 exam soon, I know most of the stuff I am just bad at answering the 9 mark questions. I need something that I can easily remember in the exam to help me answer them, thanks!

I got an A in that exam, I take it you'r doing the JUNE re sit. It will be so much easier because you have more time to get a better grade.

You should get a A star if you just write enough and not go onto the extra space section.

For nine markers like 'Should he use retained profit or get a bank loan to ?' you should state which one you think best first . Then  give 1 point as to why the other option is good but then give 1 point why it would be bad.

Then give 2 points as to why the option you have chosen is best, then with one of these reasons state why it is the most important.

e.g. I think a bank loan would be best. retained profit would be good because...however it is not the best option because...

I Think a bank loan is best because firstly.... secondly the most important reason why he should use a loan over retained profit is because

APPLY ALL ANSWERS AND REASONS TO THE CASE STUDY, USE THE NAME OF THE COMPANY WHERE YOU CAN, DON'T BE TO REPETITIVE BUST REFER TO THE INFO YOU GET

for all nine markers in any subject its always the same..

first, define the key term in the question. eg, a stake holder is...
secondly, two paragrahs agreeing with the statement or question
now, disagree eg, i dont think mark should change 'markos' into a public ltd company because...
then conclude into the best decision.

ALWAYS justify your answer with 'because'

i once got told, treat the examiners asif they are 'thick' and you have to 'spell everything out for them'!
