and yeah the exchange rates answer was £7 something which was easy to work out for the last multiple choice question

yh kinda it said something about the exchange rate for a bus fare and something else. It was £1:1.20euro
and it gave us two figures so we had to add them= 8.9 (aroundish)
so then you had to do 8.9/1.2 = 7.41 something
and the answer was £7.42 ( it was the one with the £7 something for sure cant remember exact figure)

you could have also checked as £7.42=£8.9
so £1= 1.19 which rounds to 1.20 Euro

ah the essay ones were ok, i found the overdraft one kind of hard, didn't know too much to write a 8mark answer . Also the market mapping kind of caught me by surprise i think i got like 3/6 on that one. How bout you were your answers similar to mine for Multi choice and how did you find the essay questions? also what did you write on the overdraft quesiton?

yeah the overdraaft one was meh. i got like 5 but not enough for higher than that. yeah my multiple choice was exactly like yours but i cant remeber what number 6 was . market mapping was a piece of cake my class spent like 2 weeks about it because half of the class are ******s so it really embeded in my brain. i hope unit 2 has the same style of 12 mark or higher questions split up. imagine what it would of been if it was about market mapping and it was a 12 mark question :eek:

Isn't the answer for question 3 Holidays. Surely electricity would increase if there is a larger amount of people in the household.

no because two households, on a larger scale, would use more than one.. so if they were sharing a house rather than buying their own, lots of electricity would be saved

I can see your point, however I said that holidays will decrease because the family will have less disposable income due to the need to feed/cloth more people.
However I do believe this is a silly question, not really business related.
