    Me too, what did you get for the gross profit margin? I'm hoping for a B so I can get a B overal (only got a C for unit 1)

    personally i thought it was awful! i got an a* on both unit one and the coursework, i want to do business at uni but after that i'm not so sure! I thought the 9 mark questions were too specific! and we'd not been taught about outsourcing or induction! i'm hoping for low grade boundaries but considering you all thought it went well i'm not so sure! Disappointted i don't think i'll get me a* now

    I thought the 9 markers were okay apart from the cost-plus one, too broad. Don't be put off doing business due to a silly exam :P You don't need an A* to be successful

    Exam was generally on the whole good, a few weird question here and there, and the second 9 marker about pricing strategies was weird and hard to justify for 9 marks.

    Expected Grade Boundaries:

    45 A*
    40 A
    35 B
    30 C

    Question paper (roughly from memory)
    24 MAY 2013 - aqa - unit 2 - 413002

    Anyone fancy doing the unoffical mark scheme?

    Q1) gym business - out of 21
    A) limited company (2)
    B) 2 examples of induction training (4)
    C) outsourcing (6)
    D) flow production (9)

    Q2) housing business - out of 19
    A) span of control (2)
    B) advertisements (4)
    C) decentralisation (4)
    D) pricing strategies (9)

    Q3)airline business - out of 20
    A) plc (2)
    B) profit margin (3)
    Bi) cost of sales increase (2)
    C) stakeholders/shareholders unhappy (4)
    D) sources of finance (9)

    Total - 60
    Personally, I think grade boundaries will be lowered.
    Anyone feel free to comment what you put.
    Sorry that the questions so vague.

    Answer away.

    In the conclusion don't just repeat what you've already said, a good thing to do is to explain the long and short term effects of your chosen option
    This is true, also try to maintain your argument throughout. It's also a good idea to say what your judgement will depend on, i.e. financial stability, market share/growth
