BUSL301 Revision What follows is a sample/revision exam – it is in the same overall format as the final exam (Part A multiple-choice; Part B written responses) – however the number, style and type of the questions are not necessarily the same – it does not necessarily indicate the content or complexity of the actual exam – however, it does allow you to practice the skills you will need - the questions in the sample exam are for your private study and revision purposes – the content in the sample questions has been covered in the relevant class and is accessible in the texts – accordingly you should be aware of the issues relevant to the questions and be able to revise and check your responses/answers for yourself. Note though that there is a separate document on iLearn with suggested answers as a guide. You can also practice by setting out questions for yourself and then writing short answers – for example: Why do directors have fiduciary duties? What is a civil penalty? What factors are relevant in a consideration of whether a shareholder has been oppressed? – after a little study you can make up lots of questions like these and then write a few lines worth of answer – don’t use your texts to help you answer – the benefit is in using what you know and modifying it so that your response is as precise as possible. Practice your tutorials – these are good examples of the sort of things you will be asked in the final exam. Note: The final exam Session 1 2013 (2 hours plus 10 minutes reading) is worth 60 marks (60% of your total assessment) – it is a closed book exam there will be 2 Parts – Part A will be worth 20 marks, it is comprised of 10 multiple-choice questions worth 2 marks each.
