state the factors first, then describe it & explain in further, like how it affect the business/company and what result it MAY create.

after that you have to write the opposites which means that why it may not create the result as expected

then may be compare them and analyse in which situation which result will be created

helpful?

It is so important to refer to the case study, you can never hit level 3 unless you analyse and evaluate in terms of the business

I've never seen a worse case study, I'm resitting from last year because I got a D and I'm seriously doubting whether I've even improved. The business was private but controlled by the government and didn't want to make a profit and didn't own the trains but wanted to make a faster rail service and I just... Like seriously what the hell was the examiner thinking putting this in an F291 paper? I was SO ready for this exam, if someone asked me a general question I'd be able to answer it but this case study gave us nothing. I hardly even answered the 10 mark question. So angry and disappointed.

Amen to this. The questions on their own were pretty easy, but applying them to the question and analysing in reference to the objectives on the business just seemed so hard for me. Got A's in all the past papers I did - simple businesses with obvious objectives like McDonalds..

I agree! The case study was so confusing. Private company owned by the government.. Don't think I did well either
