# OCR F297 Case Study watch

Announcements
1. (Original post by harriet6250)
ARR stands for accounting rate of return and is used by business's to assess the financial reward of an investment, in order to decide whether to go ahead with it or not. It basically compares how much money you will get back compared to what you invested. In terms of this case, it could come up in terms of the proposed investment in solar panels and the proposal of acquiring the golf shop.
Thanks

What is price discrimination??
It means when you charge different people different prices for example in CCL during peak times in the summer they put the prices up and lower them for the rest of the year
3. Anyone got any solid predictions for the paper tomorrow possibly? Cheers!

What do you mean by diversification??

"Explain how the exchange rate could affect the sale of CCL's bicycles"

and

"Analyse the advantages and disadvantages of a rising interest rate for CCL"
7. Does anybody know the formulas for Average Rate of Return and Payback Period?
Does anybody know the formulas for Average Rate of Return and Payback Period?
ARR:

2)Deduct cash outflows
3)Divide by the amount of time it takes to pay back
4)Divide by the original investment
5) x100

i.e. If the initial investment is £40000, in year one it makes 8,000, year 2 - 10,000 and year 3, 12,000 (continuing at 12,000 till it is paid back)

1)8000 + 10000 + 12000 + 12000 + 12000 = 54,000
2)54,000 - 40,000 = 14,000
3)14,000 / 5 years = 2,800
4)2,800 / 40,000 = 0.07
5) 0.7 x 100 = 7%

So, the ARR for the Golf pro shop is 7%

For OCR, if you get the right answer, they don't give any marks for working out - therefore, if ARR comes up as the first question and its for the Golf pro shop, all you need to write is 7%
9. What is the best way to evaluate for each paragraph in the answers so you achieve AO4??
10. Hi everyone, just wanted to ask how do I put the case study context into my essay answers? I have been really struggling with this and without doing this I know I would not be able to get the grades I want, It would be very great-full if anybody here can help me or if you have an exemplar A*/B essay then could you please send it to me. Thank You

useful video for whether or not to go ahead with the golf shop
12. Hi I am just wondering if anyone would be able to make their predictions on what questions are most likely to come up as i am really unsure. thanks would mean a lot. Bethan.
13. The questions i think will come up:

Decision Tree (13)
Using the decision tree, what promotional strategy should CCL use to meet their objectives
Macro economics, probably how they would affect CCL
How stakeholders would view CCL as a success
Should CCL diversify and purchase the golf shop?

These are my predictions if they help anyone.
14. I think we should come up for plans for possible essays, anybody else agree ?

This is greattt thankss
16. I'm totally lost with this decision tree question does anyone know what type of question would come up and how it can be answered

They would probably just say using the answer from your decision tree what promotional strategy should CCL use.
I would say a advantage of whatever strategy the decision tree suggests
A potential other strategy

So if the decision tree suggested to sponsor a team, i would probably write:
Advantage of sponsoring the team, including the fact the decision tree suggested that it would likely have the biggest reward
A different strategy CCL could have used, such as above the line promotion
18. Decision trees are a lot easier than they may look!
A decision tree is nothing but a graphical representation of an "IF/THEN" scenario. In other words, by using a diagram, it's effectively showing (as an example):
IF x happens, then we could/should/would do y. If z happens (and z can only happen if y happens) then we can do z1, and so on.
IF x doesn't happen, then we could/should/would do a. If a happens (and a can only happen if x doesn't happen) then we can do a1

19. How would you answer this;

"discuss the role of good employer and employee relations to the achievement of CCLs objectives"
The questions i think will come up:

Decision Tree (13)
Using the decision tree, what promotional strategy should CCL use to meet their objectives
Macro economics, probably how they would affect CCL
How stakeholders would view CCL as a success
Should CCL diversify and purchase the golf shop?

These are my predictions if they help anyone.
Hi thanks for these. Would you be able to explain how to write about the question on stakeholders please. Would be a great help. Thanks. Bethan.
