    i've been told you can/should put working out in the planning section, and then just use the answers within the paragraphs, but you don't need to put working out at all no
    On this mark scheme from a couple of years ago on question 3 they seem to show that in this particular scenario you need to show working out.

    I assume that's because it asks a very particular question to Payables and Receivables?

    Last minute tips? Please
    Remember the PAnEL structure for reasoning paragraphs (on tutor2u):

    Don't forget the AJIM structure for evaluating (on tutor2u)

    Stick to timings and ALWAYS leave time for evaluation as they make up 25% of the marks.
    Other than that, keep focussed and don't panic

    yes exactly that, if the question isn't specifically telling you to use a formula, then the workings are not completely needed.
    but tbh, if the answer is correct and u dont have the working out you will still get full marks for application

    Any thoughts as to what might come up? I have a feeling cost minimisation and decentralisation may make and appearance.

    They sound relatively nice.
    Just to double check the structure for the essays go:
    18 Markers:
    2 PANEL (tutor2u) paragraphs
    1 AJIM (tutor2u) Evaluation
    34 Markers:
    3-4 PANEL parapgrahs
    1 AJIM Evaluation
    Offline

    Hey, really messed mine up.

    Q1 - I put about how the objectives allows them to achieve a competitive advantage and differentiate, helps to achieve to corporate objective and finally because it gives the workforce things to work towards etc

    Q2 - marketing = successful because of increasing profits despite market value decreases

    Unsuccessful = revenue is falling, missing opportunities, not following market conditions

    Q3 = jumbled answer, said borrowing is good but a combination of debt and equity would be better

    Q4 = rejected the proposal on the whole.


    PLEASE someone tell me whether any of this would get marks (roughly) I need an A and I'm panicking
