    I did the same - I discussed financially that option 2 would have a profit of £47,000 compared to option 1`s £37,000 - as well option 2 allowed her to take advantage of a solid reputation and the franchise`s marketing services

    I found arguing for option 1 difficult but mentioned it would mean she could take time off to care for her children between November to February

    what did individuals argue for question this question

    yup same, overall i think it was a good paper, much better than last year (i got a mid B last year). I did get the market segment q wrong but i did get method marks, the rest was really good.

    in terms of grade boundaries they cant really make it more than 80% (48/60) but it would be higher than normal as i think it was an easy paper and it was a legacy paper. Hope everyone does well (y)

    ie
    advatnage of temp worker
    would be able to cover for seasonal time as fulltime and part time workers may not be needed and thus redicing costs (something like that)

    disadvantage

    may not be motivated due to only being hired for seasonal purposes
