Hi everyone, I am a student and I am doing this exam tomorrow. By just reading the case study given to us. We can see that the first 10 mark question is going to be about a business plan relating to expansion. The question 4 which is research task b, can be about whether they should expand or not. I would suggest you guys to know how to structure your answers.

My prediction:
Question 1: Drawing on your pre-examination research, analyse two reasons why SYS should produce a business plan for the new expansion venture. (10 marks.)
Question 4: Using your pre-examination research and all the information available to you, analyse the case for and against SYS's decision to expand into Birmingham area. Do you agree with this decision? You should justify your decision. (16 Marks)

I have been practicing these questions for a long time now. Every time I do them I get full marks.

The structure I use is this:
Question 1:
Definition (2 marks)
A point on why they should produce a business plan (3 marks)
Another point (3 marks)
Conclusion (2 marks)

Question 4:
Definition (2 marks)
One point for (3 marks)
Another point for (3 marks)
One point against (3 marks)
Another point against (3 marks)
Conclusion (2 marks)

The formulas you need for the exams are:
Break even= Fixed costs divided by average selling price - variable cost.
Total cost= Fixed + Variable Cost.
Revenue= Average selling price x quantity sold.
Profit= revenue - Total costs.

Hope I helped you guys out, good luck with the exam. If you guys have any information you would like to share, please do so. And if there is anything you guys want to ask me, feel free to ask. Thank you

I guess your doing the old spec too.

For a 5 marker:
Define the key term (1 mark)
Offer an answer in general (2 marks)
Offer an answer in context, relate it to SYS (2 marks)

For a 7 marker:
Define the key term (1 mark)
Offer an answer in general (2 marks)
Offer an answer in context, relate it to SYS (2 marks)
Conclusion (2 marks)

I think in conclusion you talk about your opinion and you suggest the business what they should do and explain how it will be beneficial for them.

Good luck. Get back to me after the exam and tell me how did it go. Thanks

The case study is given to people doing AS Applied Business (8610). You might be doing the new spec I guess.
