Profit Budgets - AQA/ Edexcel A Level Business Bellwork / Revision Activity

Graham Prior

21st November 2017

Here is a quick activity that would be ideal at the start of a Year 13 lesson to ensure that students are re-capping Year 1 content or as a revision activity. 

The activity has been taken from our A Level Business exam coaching workshop, 2015.

So that teachers can use this in lessons, the answers have been posted in our AQA and Edexcel A Level Business Facebook groups.

You can access the answers using the link below (if you are not a member of the group then you can join when you click on the link)
