  • Around 57 pages of revisions exercises / informal tests for students – to undertake AFTER they have completed the research tasks recommended, with corresponding answers for teachers – full of match-making, true or false, missing word, mini quiz, read the article, give me a clue, sort the list and ‘opposite’ activities – to develop and consolidate students’ learning AND make learning fun and enjoyable at the same time. 
  • A set of 3 mock papers, with 6 questions covering each aspect relating to the theme – to test student in more formal examination conditions, with detailed answers and mark schemes for teachers. 
  • Plenty of other practical tips and advice for both teachers and students on how performance can be maximised in this particular examination. 

“The theme materials you provided were excellent, and suited every level of teaching. I only wish that I had ordered earlier in the year; they were so comprehensive I could have dovetailed business news in as the year progressed.”
