    Don’t know if there is already a thread on this but basically,

    Had my unit 3 business studies exam today, AQA and it was horrific. Seriously, I know for a fact I will not get an A overall and hence not get into Uni. It was genuinely my worst exam yet.

    Just wondered how everyone else found it?

    This is what I did:

    question 1: worked out ROCE for 2012 and Acid test ration to see the profitability and efficiency and compared it to 2011. Don't know if this right tho?

    question 2: wrote all sorts of stuff like celebrity increased the profile of the business.
    Good market research done.
    Have a very innovative product and new products were made to the needs and wants of the target market.

    question 3: Cant remember what I wrote lol.

    question 4 : Just horrific. Didn't really have the time to write the whole answer wrote a paragraph Argument for and 2 paragraph for Against and Evaluation about a paragraph.

    Btw I did an AQA exam!! Any feedbacks will be good about my answers

    Did the paper give forecast values for profit or revenue of the new strategy in order for us to work out ROCE for the last question?

    From what I can remember, the paper only had details of 2011 and gave us figures for 2012 so we could work out that (2012) year's figures. So, I think it only allowed us to compare and contrast the 2011 and 2012's figures. This was on the AQA paper (not the edexcel).

    Ok thanks! So we didn't have to work out ROCE for the proposed 2012 strategy? What calculations did you do for the last question then?
