Not really Mr.Ahmad. If you study the models well and practice enough questions from Kit its an easy paper only..!!! Work hard..!!
You need to have a good grasp of the knowledge in the text and know how to apply what you've learnt to the questions. The models are to be used as a guide and to get you thinking about various ideas. It's all about the scenario and relating your answers back to what is going on in the scenario. You must think with a strategic mindset. Think big, out of the box, what's the best solutions to the problems. I believe one must be very business minded to do this paper well and must understand the overall concept of business analysis and how all the areas are linked. I've seen people recommend doing additional external reading to aid in understanding how businesses operate. Also time management is important. Time yourself while doing questions. Thinking time is very limited. At the start of the exam read the requirements of the various questions, choose which options you will do then move on to reading the question you will do first. Write out your answer plan on the question paper and take it from there.
Don't spend longer than you should on any question. It will be very tempting to do this especially with the 50 marker. So far it sounds like you don't have any issues with the paper and that is good. If you find that you're giving quality answers within the time frame given then you're on your way to passing. The paper may be difficult for others but it doesn't mean that it will be for you. Everyone is different, as well as level of knowledge, study technique, exam technique, mindset etc. So if what you're doing is working for you then continue along that path.
