morqs u dont need to draw the diagram.rem if its for 2 marks no need to give it too much time.just indicate in the question diagram by drawing a dotted line or in the answer sheet it cud be like this :-
critical path = a -> b -> d->e. (just draw arrows between the activities.)

oh man, thnx a lot but howd i know the CP wthout drawing the diagram like i'll find out the LST for all activities n then write it the way uv written, i mean with arrows?? or should i just see that thes avtivities take the longest time so thats the critical path where no delays can be made??

actually i shudve started learning it earlier, the exams 2moro bt anyway thnx a lot. (i still hope this thing is not asked in the paper tomoro, how hopeful of me??)

it doesnt matter how many words u write.the marks are awarded to the quality of the answer.try to be relevant and dont beat about the bush in ur answers.if u r still unsure what my teacher told us to do was that for 40 marks write 80 lines with an average of 5-7 words per line.for 60 marks write 120 lines with the same average words and so on.get what iam saying?just write 2 lines for 1 mark.

Yea i totally agree, all the toolkit does is tell you some possible strategies that you could use. In the toolkits ive seen in the past for units 1,2 and 3 there were predictable questions so i used to just memorize answers to them.

But i guess all you can do know is memorize the different strategies given in the tool kit.:confused:

Sorry been really busy with Units 3, 4, 5 and other subjects too. I still managed to do a few of the questions i posted earlier, these next three days that is all i'm going to work on as it is my only exam left and i'm free off them for life . I'll try post one, but i hand wrote them so im going to have to type them up, which might take time.

hey there...any body got the pattern to write the unit 6 answers ...i am kinda lost...particularly for this unit...my teacher made a mess of it i
as u all kno tht there r three ques and the first one is mostly a strategy based question. there r six steps to doing tht:-
1)Determine corporate objectives
2)gather data (using tools such as SWOT,PEST-G and portfolio analysis)
3)analyze alternate strategies
4) select strategy
5)implement
6)review

the format of this answer would be like this:-
1) introduction (give brief history of the firm
2) business objectives (use ur imagination)
3) data analysis (use analysis tools)
4) choosing a strategy (use ansoff matrix )
5) alternate strategies (explain possibe strategies other than the chosen one)
6) Strategy choice (give a brief description)
7) implementation of the strategy (rem to refer the firm ie j1 driving school)
8) review the strategy success after implementaion
9) conclusion
hope this is useful
