Success in AQA A Level Business in June 2017

The first sitting of AQA A Level Business is fast approaching with students preparing for Paper 1, Paper 2 and Paper 3 in June 2017. This course will focus on practical assessment and revision strategies that can be implemented over the coming weeks to ensure that your students are as well prepared as any to take on the challenges of the first AQA linear A Level Business exams.

Session 1 (2.00pm-3.45pm)

Structuring Responses for to Maximise Marks

Effective exam technique is going to be key for reaching the highest levels of the mark scheme in Paper 1, 2 & 3. This session will explain and explore how students should structure their responses to short-answer and data-response questions and the longer 25-mark essays. We’ll look at the new holistic method of marking and consider how students can signpost and construct their answers to address the new required levels of response.

Session 2: (4.10pm-6.00pm)

The Challenge of Linear

With all the Year 1 teaching content to revise as well as the substantial content in Year 2, how can students handle the significant challenges of revising for three linear and synoptic exams? We’ll explore a range of effective revision strategies that can be implemented immediately to help your students build their confidence well before the mad rush in late May.
