    Guys, STILL struggling with the evaluation on the long mark questions, can anyone provide ways of getting full marks on the evaluation or tips even, thanks!
    What my teacher said was to make a decision. Then justify why you made this decision. Talk about the depends on factors. And talk a bit more about the answer and if possible use some numerical data hope it helped!

    I was told by a few teachers that each question is marked separately, but I can't say for sure if that's true or not

    Hey, delegation is giving responsibility to a subordinate on the hierarchical organisational structure
    Empowerment is giving more tasks of challenging levels.

    I'm confused about distribution channels myself

    NO NO NO! Responsibility always stays with the person delegating. It's authority that is passed!!!!

    Distribution channels is the method by which a product is sold to a customer. E.g. Retailers, Wholesalers and Agents. You can also have direct distribution which is the business selling directly to the consumer (No Intermediaries).

    Most of the content should be common sense, the real knowledge falls with definitions and if you understand the effects of aspects towards the business.

    Good luck tomorrow, after tomorrow I can celebrate the end of exams!!!!

    elasticity of demand is highly unlikely to come up as a stand alone question. it normally gives you the value for it or has data on it so you can work it out yourself, then just incorporate these figures into any of the long 13-15 mark essays to support your argument.

    i've attached the jan 2013 paper and ms
    Thank you!

    I did mean PED as more of included within a question as data and how to use it fully than a standalone question but I didn't word my original question right haha.

    ohh I see what you mean, I use it when talking about price. so if its price elastic then decrease prices to increase sales etc. price comes into a lot of factors - in a lot of questions you could talk about pricing and therefore PED
