    I thought the exam was quite good. A lot of the questions have come up in previous past papers though. I have seen question 2d before.

    In terms of the Labour Productivity question, the answer was in fact 72 units.

    A lot of people I talked to got this wrong. It said in the paper there were 40 employees and has increased by 50%. Most people saw the 50% and doubled it to 80, then divided it into the amount of Mussels which were made to give something like 52.

    You actually had to find 50% of 40 then add that on, which made it to 60 employees.

    Even if you got the answer wrong you should get a few method marks, so it's not too bad.

    I messed up that labour productivity question bad, completely forgot the formula. It's only 5 marks though. 2d wasn't amazing either, rest of it was very easy though. Riding on the back of 84% in BUSS1 so hopefully got an A.

    The only one I struggled with was the marketing mix question. I could only find stuff to write about the place.

    Everything else was fine I think.

    FYI: calculation answer was 72 tonnes per employee.

    I thought that was a really nice paper, the invigilator told us to put down our pens just as I finished my final sentence. Managed to encorporate kaisen and Herzeberg/Maslow into it too

    probably not /: If you stated the labour productivity formula, you would get a mark for that though
