Hi all, has anyone used iACHIEVE resources for the Vcert business and enterprise? There are no resources on the V-Cert website, beyond one past paper. All the older task 2-6 papers are not there. (Does anyone have any? I need more case studies for my students to practice spotting the clues) .
I would be super grateful for any support. Panicking about the exam after reading this thread!
anyone had their marketing results yesterday and are screaming! We had some of the strongest kids we have ever had, knew exactly what each criteria was looking for, they had read the previous examiner reports so knew previous issues and apart from a very small handful end result NYA ....3.1 apparently was their biggest downfall; somehow kids getting distinctions in all the other criterion, how could recite the MM including all the terms from the range yesterday despite not at it for 2 months did not achieve 3.1 even at a pass!
We are appealing all of them as this is just ridiculous; we have never had so many not achieve this unit before and I felt like I was shooting Bambi giving out these results
I've just started at a new school and we only had something like 33% pass the marketing exam so if there is any help out there I'd be grateful.
Please can I be added to the dropbox again?
Could I be added to the dropbox please too. I'm teaching this course now for the 2nd cohort through and have lots of valuable resources!
My Year 10 students have sat the Task 1 today. Can't believe the layout of task 1 has been changed without any warning. Although its easier, it definitely impacted on our students. They've been so proactive advertising the changes to task 2-6 too.
Mine felt the same, although it shouldn't have done as this was how I structured their worksheets for revision!
Do agree though that if they are going to radically change the layout they should pre-warn as they did for tasks 2-6 last year as like others we have used all the past papers and therefore that was what students were used to and were expecting.
I do think that whilst this is a good board to use (answer queries quickly, moderators support not just judge etc) they need to quickly understand how schools work and how 14-16 year old are taught, especially in preparation for an external assessment
You may find the forthcoming NCFE VCert in Business and Enterprise interesting:
