    I really angry at myself... only realised I had the 20 marker to do when they said theres 10 minutes left. Feel like they were clutching at straws on some of the questions...

    For the 20 marker I spoke about their past; how they were successful with the flower postage and deliveries, commented on their expansion nationwide and how they were able to cater for more customers because of this. Talked about distributing online. Many people have access to the Internet and so can buy online as more people are becoming aware of their online presence. Drawbacks of the Post Office on transport costs of distributing through post office, plus being unable to directly cater for those who buy online. Drawbacks of online sales being that transport costs may increase higher than the transports costs with the post office e.g. having to pay for vans and fuel rather than just postage and delivery. Not everyone has access to the Internet whereas more people have access to postage. Also, distributing through the Post office brings about less costs and may in the long term pay off the £1m investment.

    I messed up on the income elasticity question and did 3500-2000/3500 and got -19.5 as a final answer. Probally got 0 out of 4 on that. Apart from that the paper went ok. The whole thing felt rushed.

    Yeah, you might get a mark for the correct working out! I put the answer as a positive rather than a negative which may void my marks too

    If you wrote the formula for YED and put the numbers in the formula you'd get like 2 marks or something.

    Welp that was a terrible paper, probably only got about 5 marks on the 20 marker and had to rush a few of those 8/10 markers... didn't think to write that delayering creates opportunities for promotion increasing motivation

    For my 10 marker on profit maximisation i said they could expand to frozen food in one point and in my second i talked about dominating the market Are these okay for knowledge marks?

    And in my 20 mark i talked about online retailing and said that there are less intermediaries and middle men so it was more profitable and for the post office i said that there is a strong brand and they use royal mail which is expensive because it is a long distribution channel. Did i answer the question right?

    And also if i mentioned something as an advantage but it was actually a disadvantage will i get any marks?

    Delayering reduces opportunities* Not increases it. Less layers would mean that there's less opportunity to become e.g a manager. Get it?

    Oh yeah that's what I meant, but yeah didn't think of that, I said there was less job security because people might be made redundant when a layer is removed, and put that consultation with higher up managers would be easier, which was a bit of a desperate point to put down
