Each case study relates to one or more specific sections in the specification, details of which are found on the document “List of Titles and Topics”. Case studies are written to reflect a specific “Theme”, either a sole trader, partnership, Ltd or franchise for Theme 1, and Ltd and plc for Theme 2. All questions written, together with the mark schemes, match the style found in the specimen assessment materials provided by Edexcel.

In general, there are three questions that follow each case. Two shorter answer questions, usually a 2 mark and a 6 mark question, are asked first, followed by either a 9 or 12 mark question. The focus of the two shorter answer questions may relate to the advertised theme of the case, but not in all instances. This is due to the length of the case study and the nature of the specification. The subject of the longer marked question however, will always assess the advertised case study topic area. Whether a 9 or 12 mark question has been written, will be dependent on the topic area in question.

At times, calculation questions have been included to replace a written question, to reflect the increased focus on quantitative skills in the specification.

How to use this resource:

In light of the information above, there are a variety of ways that this resource can be used, as teachers may not have taught all the topic areas included in a particular case study. The different approaches include:

1. The last question could be assessed individually, removing the need to answer the two shorter marked questions

2. Both, or just one, of the shorter mark questions can be given, without providing the 9 or 12 mark question; this may be appropriate at the start of the course, when answering a 9 or 12 mark question may be too challenging for students

3. The assessment can be given as written, as a complete full assessment

As detailed above, a breakdown of the topics assessed in each case study is given on the document “List of Titles and Topics”, to facilitate teachers with their planning and use of this resource.
