    Business Studies Exam Thoughts

    - never learnt unit trust
    - might've messed up on sues long term thingy
    - forgot most of the limitations

    Oh no It seems like you had some memory blanks with the Finance topic!

    And that sucks, I remember learning the unit trust but it was such a small detail, I can't blame you.

    Re: Business Studies Exam Thoughts

    Unit trust sounds like a really familiar term... I think for that one I guessed it was either C or D (but put down C).

    That is I think it is where investors pool money to buy property or something?? What did you guys do for that one?

    Yup! From memory, it is a collective effort where multiple investors contribute (towards often large funding projects)



    Aaaah! I'm so excited to see the paper!!! I heard MC was quite challenging?

    Like for the first ten questions I was doing okay and then the next ten I wrote asterisks next to like 7 or something to indicate to come back and check (cuz I wasn't too sure). Lol

    Multiple choice were quite tricky and some of the short-answers might lose a few, but all up I think it was quite a fair test. I really liked the business report.

    Re: Business Studies Exam Thoughts

    Circled casual then crossed it out. Thought 66 year old was more expensive due to inefficiencies and needs for benefits.

    Pregnancy one was so bait I fell for it. I circled EEO but it's Sex Discrimination.
