    7P's (There was a multiple choice Q, but I reckon it could come up as a longer mark question in paper 2)
    Distribution channels
    E-commerce
    Lean production
    Quality
    Inventory and Supply chains
    Cash flow
    Budgeting
    Break-even
    Other Sources of Finance
    HR data
    Motivation and Engagement

    A few of these may have appeared briefly, and I don't know what could come up, but I'd still expect to see some of these. And the others, alongside these, would be about financial objectives, external/internal factors, etc... stuff like that. Hope this is of any help.
    Thank you, that's really helped me out!

    RETURN ON INVESTMENT = (RETURN ON INVESTMENT / TOTAL COST OF INVESTMENT) X100
    THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT = £75,000
    TOTAL COST OF INVESTMENT = £220,000 + £28,000 - £4000 = £244,000
    (75,000 / 244,000)x 100 = 30.737704918%

    WHERE DID I GO WRONG?

    I did 75,000+4000=79,000

    79,000-28,000=51,000

    51,000/220,000 x 100= 23.18%

    Yep, yep. This is exactly what I, and a people I asked, did.

    Hi everybody, just wanted to share some predictions that my teachers made in school following what topics came up on the first business exam.
    Firstly, Break-even, learn the formula fixed costs/ contribution per unit.
    -lean production
    -price elasticity of demand
    -product life cycle
    -technology

    I've seen HR data floating around but if i remember correctly didn't the case study question mention human resources and training? I honestly cannot remember.
    The general consensus is that since the first exam didn't have many calculations, the Tuesday exam is going to be very math heavy!
    Hope this helps!

    2 16 markers and
    1 20 marker
    Where do the the other 10 marks come from?

    I really hope it's maths heavy but I highly doubt that. Isn't the exam structure for tomorrow as follows (correct me if I'm wrong):
    10 marks of SAQ
    2 9 markers
    2 16 markers
    1 20 marker

    Section A
    2x 2 markers
    1x 4 marker
    1x 8 marker
    1x 10 marker

    Section B
    2x 2 markers
    1x 4 marker
    1x 8 marker

    2x 3 marks
    1x 4 marks
    2x 9 marks
    2x 16 marks
    1x 20 marks
