    Wasn't too bad to be honest, quite liked it compared to past exams. I exactly like the last question about promotion though, was a bit stuck for a few minutes.
    You basically had to talk about how different promotion can increase customers. I talked about sales promotions and merchandising.

    Holy ****, I completely forgot about that during the exam. I'm a bit annoyed by myself since I knew this topic pretty well, but I didn't even think of that during the exam..

    I talked about two pricing strategies, predatory pricing and competitive pricing, then say why they are good and what they are used for

    What was the question?
    It was something like: asda sold milk that was reduced from £1.18 to £1 so lower than production costs for farmers so why did asda do it

    What was the answer for the last multiple choice where there was farmers and asda? Was it increased market share?
