    Unit 2A Business Studies:

    Question one was something along the lines of 'How would Robert Cairns most likely reach the £70,000 he needs?'

    And the answer (according to my business teacher) was with an overdraft
    I was told that overdrafts aren't used for large sums of credit; so I put the credit thing option 😢😢😢.

    Yeah I got an Overdraft also- I got an B last year on this paper, this paper was easier then last year.

    Don't worry you'll most likely get at least a mark though!

    Hey if that work is above yours with q's 1 I got them same to yours.

    I would of put if I said disadvantage - that as it's well known quiailty brand and their clothes are pricy because of the cost of production.

    But ( I did exam last year.) you could of said ( as it's part of marketing mix.) you could of said that another thing such as place ( re-locating) online coils increase online sales as 6.8% was lost in instore-meaning people that use to shop they went online for another alternative brand, if M and S went online the ppl that originally brought the clothes from there could go back and bit the clothes from m and s as online which increase customer loyalty again etc :-)

    I put addition to salary. It could not have been herzberg because pay was a hygiene factor and not a motivating factor.

    That was my reasoning too, chose the addition to salary one also

    There was a question on budgets andwhy the business got a favourable varience rather than the expected adverse which i think the answer ot that that the product or service was of more value which may of been c and i think the other one was about flexible working and the effect itwould have on the on a low labour turnover if i remember correctly but i cant remember the answer for that one
