    umm i cant remembaa was it 2?
    are you talking about the one we had to look at the graph? of some business called fruitella? and how the more marketing they did the higher sales were going. . i concluded with that saying just to use it as guidelines as the product itself plays a big role.

    or i think that was diffrent question o.O completly blank now

    Woah, sounds like everyone found it really hard! I didn't think it was THAT bad Although as usual, time was a major issue and by the sounds of it im guessing the grade boundaries will be pretty much as low as last year, which is good

    Hmm, i've always found Business to be a bit of a strange subject, tbh only took it halfway through last year thinking it would be a doss lol don't quite have that same thinking anymore. I wouldn't worry too much, as long as you got the relevant stuff down I'm sure you did fine

    You'd get all of the marks for the NPV, they use the own figure rule so you aren't penalised twice.
    Thanks for that! I don't suppose you know if we were supposed to increase the revenue by 3% each year like some people are saying on the forum??? Cause I didn't even notice that, I assumed that the net cash flow would be the same over the five years!!! Having to add the 3% on each year though does seem a little complicated for only 4 marks though! Would do you think???

    I had major angst over that, then decided that no we werent because A) the question said "using your answer from part A" and B) it was only worth 4 marks

    Very good point. It just seems odd - why even mention that revenue will increase (specifically by 3%) if they didn't want us to use it in some way??? I do agree with you though, not just with the logic but also because I'm pretty biased! lol

    In deciding whether or not to pick option A or B, I used it to say that they could not cope with B if they were to grow at 12% a year, especially if they wanted to finance the project by selling off spare land.

    True, maybe they'll accept both figures for those who increased it by 3% and those who left it the same like me =)


    most people i know went for the 200k a year

    It was ambiguous tbh, so I think they may well accept two answers.

    was this lil 3% hidden in size 1 font or something. . because me along with soo many people did not see it.

    the most we gona loose is a mark hopefully, or if aqa has any love they'll take both answers as correct

    it was at the bottom of the table mate .. it said something like dis the sales annual is likely to increase by 2% or 3% not sure!! u never clocked dat , i wish i never clocked it aswell, when i saw that I stopped the calculation i was running out of time, there was only 4 minutes left, I saw the last question which worths 12 marks , left the NPV not completed....!!

    However. Not always. In accounting it has been known to have EITHER/OR mark schemes. For example, the answer will be X, but if they have given answer Y it is also accepted and full marks can be awarded.
