Also taking BUSS2 for the second time around but got a D last year (lol) and aiming for a high A.

Find this exam really hard regarding remembering the content, though I am fine with exam technique?!

I think the calculations could either be: absenteeism (pretty sure it has never come up), return on capital or net profit margin? Though I would have preferred profit variance as that is so simple

I am just practising my exam technique and going over the content, trying to retain as much as my pea brain can :-(!

Yeah I got a feeling it could be those as well! do you have any revision material for Buss 2? And a list of calculations? I've literally forgotten the exam technique, I will need to go over it again

I just use the textbooks and this website called Tutor2u (has loads of business information)

These are the calculations you need: http://www.tutor2u.net/assets/BUSS2-formulas.pdf

Nope, but I'm sure it is like that definition, two for, two against and a conclusion with evaluation.

Does anybody have any predictions for the calculation question and 13/15 mark question, e.g. what theme will come up? Can somebody also please list the different topics that come under different sections. e.g. Motivation under HRM but for all topics? Thanks
