1. (Original post by ThatGooner)
Elasticity
Shareholders/Stakeholders
Sampling
Primary/Secondary research
7P's (There was a multiple choice Q, but I reckon it could come up as a longer mark question in paper 2)
Distribution channels
E-commerce
Lean production
Quality
Inventory and Supply chains
Cash flow
Budgeting
Break-even
Other Sources of Finance
HR data
Motivation and Engagement

A few of these may have appeared briefly, and I don't know what could come up, but I'd still expect to see some of these. And the others, alongside these, would be about financial objectives, external/internal factors, etc... stuff like that. Hope this is of any help.
Thank you, that's really helped me out!
2. Did anyone do the old spec resit paper for buss 1
What did you get for calculations
3. RETURN ON INVESTMENT = (RETURN ON INVESTMENT / TOTAL COST OF INVESTMENT) X100
THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT = £75,000
TOTAL COST OF INVESTMENT = £220,000 + £28,000 - £4000 = £244,000
(75,000 / 244,000)x 100 = 30.737704918%

WHERE DID I GO WRONG?

WHERE DID I GO WRONG?
I did 75,000+4000=79,000

79,000-28,000=51,000

51,000/220,000 x 100= 23.18%

Yep, yep. This is exactly what I, and a people I asked, did.

Weren't the 7Ps included in the Halfords question about marketing decisions?
9. Hi everybody, just wanted to share some predictions that my teachers made in school following what topics came up on the first business exam.
Firstly, Break-even, learn the formula fixed costs/ contribution per unit.
-lean production
-price elasticity of demand
-product life cycle
-technology

I've seen HR data floating around but if i remember correctly didn't the case study question mention human resources and training? I honestly cannot remember.
The general consensus is that since the first exam didn't have many calculations, the Tuesday exam is going to be very math heavy!
Hope this helps!
10. Does anyone know the structure of the exam tomorrow, and structure of answers, I have a rough idea but would like some advice?

11. Anybody know the exact amount of questions and what they are worth for tomorrow?
I'm under the impression there's
2 9 markers
2 16 markers and
1 20 marker
Where do the the other 10 marks come from?

I really hope it's maths heavy but I highly doubt that. Isn't the exam structure for tomorrow as follows (correct me if I'm wrong):
10 marks of SAQ
2 9 markers
2 16 markers
1 20 marker
RETURN ON INVESTMENT = (RETURN ON INVESTMENT / TOTAL COST OF INVESTMENT) X100
THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT = £75,000
TOTAL COST OF INVESTMENT = £220,000 + £28,000 - £4000 = £244,000
(75,000 / 244,000)x 100 = 30.737704918%

WHERE DID I GO WRONG?
that's exactly what i got and rounded the answer to 31%
isnt it right?
14. Feeling excited for this exam!! First one went really well so hoping the same for this one

Don't think so? Isn't it the same as Theme 1?

Section A
2x 2 markers
1x 4 marker
1x 8 marker
1x 10 marker

Section B
2x 2 markers
1x 4 marker
1x 8 marker
1x 10 marker

Section C
1x 20 marker
16. No I'm pretty sure it starts with a few 3-5 mark calculations then 2 nine markers, a couple of 16s and one 20
