    yeah it was weird! I think I put the 290million one at the very last second but I didn't have time to work out if it was right so thanks!

    For that question i defined operating profit

    And defined operating profit margin

    Then i did the 304 / 1.06 = 290.56

    Dont know exactly if this is the correct answer but it seems like veryone got 290.56

    1. Market orientation
    the Indian rupees question was a
    business plan question was retained profit
    hawk-eye one was there was no guarantee of operating profit
    equation one was operating profit was 290 mill before i think
    Last one was consumer wants were met so sales were increased

    Thats all i can remember atm (THESE ANSWERS ARE NOT 100% CORRECT)

    The last question literally made no sense , like LEGIT NO SENSE, did anybody do it?
    you mean the government spending?
    The question is weird, I said that they would not affect by decrease but an increase of government spending as the figures shown... And I linked it to taxation.

    Is it possible to get 4marks, for simply stating the correct answer, giving a definition explaning why 2 other options are incorrect without explaning why your answer is right. Im pretty sure it wouldn't matter right?

    Same as me, however question 6 i think was the one relate to break even analysis etc. For that i put the the margin of safety would be 0, did you put the same? IT WAS DO DAM HARD TO EXPLAIN WHY IT WAS CORRECT

    I think there is a rounding problem,if you do 308 x (1-0.06) it will be 289.52 but the answer is 290.56 so that really confuse me.

    I said that margin of safety = total output - break even output

    So when margin of safety = 0, it is breaking even and I said why the other options were incorrect

    Ahh yea i got that too Aha yea, i defined breakeven point, then defined margin of safety and then just said therefore a margin of safety is 0 then it means level of output is equal to breakeven point.....But it got reallt waffley!

    population size is right but competition may be arguable as it said 'no price' depends how you extended it, i think it's probably right tho

    Im not sure about substitutes for a clothing brand....and also youd have to say there was an increased price of substiutes or something as they question asked what factors would increase demand for Matthew's business not affectPopulations a good one! Provided you explained them well and gave examples i think both should be fine!

    For Section B for 2 non price factors that increase demand I said -
    1. Changes in taste and fashion
    2. And decrease in their income because then they can spend less in expensive high street stores and more in pop up retailing

    What do you think?

    The paper was okay some of the multiple queations blew me away as in Q2 that surely cant be right because ethical stance is defined as making a right agaisnt something you belive is socially and morally wrong also for business plan surely its not retained profit because plan includes all the finance sources....
