I did AQA and the questions were okay, just never have enough time to finish to a good standard! Any of you guys have the same problem on your exam board?

What did you get for the Decision Trees as the net gain for Option 1. I got £112,000 I think but people are saying £288,000 or £88,000

Net gain was £88,000
I think what you did was forget that the bottom branch was a minus. Therefore you had to subtract £12,000 from £300,000. (£300k - £12k = £288k). From their you then subtract the cost of investing in scotland which was £200k
£288,000 - £200,000 = £88,000 net gain.

Don't worry, as long as you wrote down your workings out you'll still get the marks. Also you still put that investing in Scotland has a higher net gain so again it doesn't really matter.

Yep hopefully, but I still don't get how that question was 16 marks lmao. If you look at any past paper, they're around 6 marks. They didn't even ask you to workout the EV for Option 2

Because the case study gives the opportunity to apply which decision might be best. For example, I said choice 1 because it has the potential to bring in much more profit which could then be used to improve the business' financial weakness i.e. paying of the £100k debt. However, the second option is a much safer choice which could be more sensible considering the business' financial weakness.

That paper was a load of ****, did last year's paper in class and got 66/80 with 52 being an A and that was supposed to be a tough paper. This year's paper was horrible compared to that, literally everything possible that could have thrown me off came up. **** AQA.
