# AS Edexcel Official Business Unit 1: Marketing and people - 19th of MAy watch

1. Not too bad but i think theme 1 is gonna pull me down. And how the **** do you calculate profit margin. Probably got at least a few marks for showing the formula.
2. Well that went better than expected....
3. How did everyone find it?
4. I found that to be the best paper so far!
I messes up calculating the current ratio, but everything else was amazing!

Apart from that definition of current liabilities
5. What did people get for the calculations?
6. When you see the 20 marker and you're like

Went better than the first paper but I'm still weary about what grade I'll get. The maths questions were so annoying and I ran out of time and did only half a ten marker. And the current liabilities definition question I screwed up..

Profit divided by sales rev x 100

I couldnt work out the current assets so i just did a random number from the table divided by the current liabilities! So i got 0.74:1

I got something like 1.287 : 1 or 2.8 : 1, something ridiculous for that, wbu?

It was current assets/ current liabilities.
Expressed in the ratio of what you got :1

So i got 2.99:1

I got that but didnt put :1 will i lose a mark?
15. Didn't know whether to include cash as a current asset, so I did both and got 1.8 : 1 (if I remember correctly) and 3 : 1, rounded to the nearest 0.1.

Probably becuase it is usually how many times your current assets can pay your current liabilities so yeah just 1.
17. I got 2.99:1 for the current ratio, £26000 for profit and 14 for margin of safety (on the basis that you can't have 0.5 of a unit, especially not 0.5 schools)

I forgot the difference between the acid test and current ratio so i guessed and picked the right one.
19. Overall I'm actually really happy with how it went - much easier than theme 1 (don't want to jinx it)

£26,000 for the profit
Messed up the ratio one, I did current liabilities/ current assets ... Supposed to minus right? Ended up with 1 point something
