    Thank you Jack, i'll take a quick overlook of them tonight and tomorrow before the exam, i have been revising organisation structures and international trade, i just feel like they may be a harsh on the students as per usual and go for something extremely specific.

    Yep believe so. I think the short questions were straight forward if you revised. But the longer two were more difficult

    Yeah it was tough but they outlined what they wanted from you in one of the sources. The ethics was quite difficult to argue against, I thought

    and what was that?

    for the 20 i said that they may be unethical because they're product of fizzy drinks is encouraging poor diets.
    i then in my conclusion countered this by saying.. however, they have tried to reduce this by reducing calorie per drink and labelling etc

    Oh one of the extracts was on the CMA and outlined about merging, consumer relations... regulation of the market. I also added that. The CMA could split a larger business if they are being too monopolistic. meaning they have a larger presence in the market compared to before when a bigger company dominated the market. I also added because they only had 2% market share they were unlikely to have problems with market regulation to do with competition

    Yes may mean they have to employ extra staff etc. Have higher costs. If looking at merger may need to designate people to help with the CMA investigation. It stated it took the CC 6 months when Britvic so undoubtedly that caused them inconvenience and a cost to Barr which could have been spent else where. You could also talk about extra regs in a market and how that would effect operations eg. Cost, extra training?

    Yes this was the case but as they note on the website you should use the spec rather than book. The book is littered with mistakes in the end of chapter questions too.

    You might get some money back if you highlight that it stopped you getting the marks?
