Break up of paper: Part A - 40% of marks - Based on year 11 work and Dynamic Nature of Business Part B - 60% of marks - 3 Essays (Each 20 marks) - Based on year 12 Electives (and supplementary material!) Break up of the meaning of marks: Mark: Comment: A Detailed analysis with sufficent examples (use of terms) B Good description with some examples C Answered the question (60% of students don't!) D Answers question unsatisfactorily E Fails to attempt question properly These marks will not be seen by students but are how the HSC markers work out an essays value. Break up of an questions worth: Part A - Worth the least but still important to answer Part B - Worth the most, and therefore should be given extra time to answer Part C - Same as B, so equal time should be given for B and C Part D - If a part D does exist, it is usually worth equal or slightly less than B/C QUESTION 7 OF LAST YEARS PAPERS WAS THE WORST ANSWERED QUESTION, A VARIATION OF THAT QUESTION WILL EXIST IN THE '94 PAPER. 30% OF STUDENTS GOT THIS RIGHT! (Q7 - Multiple Choice) If you don't know a term/question look it up or ask your teacher AND write it down! '....Business Studies students are supposed to answer like Business studies students.' While the previous sentence may not make much sense to you, it means this, Business Studies papers are meant to be answered in Business forms of writing, not english essay form, or an other subjects way of writing. Report style writing is highly recommended when answering essays! This is NOT the same as English essay styles of writing. A report style document consists of an introduction, points below fully explained and supported, and a concluding paragraph; graphs are also an intregal part of a report style document, but DONT try to make a graph it is not necessary. In report style writing if necessary use tables, graphs, diagrams, underlining, headings, and highlighting. When answering a question, IF it FULLY answers the question beyond doubt THEN do any style of answer you wish, even if a diagram is your whole answer. In thise case words are NOT needed. Other ideas include a time line, graph or chart. But MOST IMPORTANTLY - PLAN FOR ALL POSSIBILITIES!!
