timing was a joke

Only for I'm a fast writer I got it done but know loads didn't get it done !! Our teacher said that they are pushing to change it but sec won't do it !! Around 20 pages in 3 hours is crazy when we get 3:20 hrs to write paper 2 in English which is normally less

What did anyone write for the function of the NCA?
nikitha_s — 16/06/16
@Gillian Hoey the nca ; provides information to consumers, advocates(fights) for consumers rights , investigate breaches of consumer laws, look into consumer issues
Amy_6717 — 16/06/16
promote consumer welfare/ interests , publishes consumer magazine, then i brought in the consumer protection act saying that they protect and misleading claims, goods and service and also ensures that there are no aggressive practices. wrote evrything because i didnt know what they were looking for -_-
Gillian Hoey — 16/06/16
Okay thanks a mill!! I think I said something along the lines of those
Lc8/6/16 — 16/06/16
Also about enforcement...they can issue prohibition order or on the spot fines
Lc8/6/16 — 16/06/16
And the timing is a joke....we sit in Irish paper 1 for 2 hours to write a 3 page essay and we have to then write over 20 pages in 3 hours for business
leahbyrne68 — 16/06/16
I thought timing was a joke too, way too tight for time
CiaraPhelan — 16/06/16
Anybody know if there's any negative marking or penalties? Say for example you gave 6 answers but only 3 were right
Lc8/6/16 — 16/06/16
Don't think there is
leahbyrne68 — 16/06/16
Maybe they were only looking for 3 and you could still get full marks if them 3 were right :) it's so hard to tell what their looking for when answering a Q
ellend0246 — 16/06/16
I forgot to write my examination number on my graph paper for business what will happen
Gillian Hoey — 16/06/16

ellend0246 — 16/06/16
