The last question was to what extent does an Airline need to use contingency planning that was one of the last 9 markers!

I thought paper 3 was alright but timing was very hard and limited, like I think I messed up the q on whether he should quit his job or nah cause I didn’t even calculate or even think about the profit difference, I just stated how quantitative reasons of being able to be productive and motivated thus perhaps helping him pursue his 3 years growth strategy ... and using his time efficiently etc. I also had like 15 mins finish the 24 mark on overcoming growth crisis, my whole essay was based on like Greiner model, I stated each phases and crisis e.g for leadership crisis, you may recruit specialist, e.g functional managers cause the business is expanding/ growing too quickly for the founders or leaders to manage and something about the alliance phase, and overcoming this growth phase or crisis through external growth, such as acquisition of takeover/ merger etc. I hope I got more than 12 marks on the last essay, cause of timing, I feel like my quality of essay was affected😫 how did u find it? & how did u answer it?

Yh the timing was completely ****ed! I had like 10 mins to do the 24 marker! But heard quite a lot of people had the same issue! And yep I said the exact same thing for the quiting job question! I also calculated his rough total revenue by taking away the total costs etc.. I also spoke about about Maslows hierarchy of needs - I said he’s more likely to reach self actualisation etc.. which will help motivation and I spoke about the benefits for the business of him being full time eg: more time focusing on quality control and assurance which inevitably result in higher potential volume of sales which will lead to overall high profitability making hoppers more competitive and with reference to Michael porters 5 forces will reduce the threat or rilvalry, new entrants and substitutes because the business will now have more scope to use a larger proportion of profit as retained which can be injected back in to Hopers to obtain further core competencies etc... waffled quite a lot!

— what did you write for the e-commerce and distribution model? OMG I didn’t even mention any theories in that question, legit my stupid ass weren’t even able to think about it😫 I’m hella worried cause I messed up paper 2, 16 marks on contingency plan, i wrote about the right thing in the first paragraph then started having doubts and wrote the opposite of how it’s a plan adopted only during a certain crisis😫😫 would I still get some few marks or nah? And do I reckon grade boundaries will be same, lower or higher than last year.

Hello everyone, how did you find the paper and what were your answers for the calculations ??
There were also whole sections on M&S and Lego, some stuff about Lego's culture and how the employees can carry the culture with them while working etc (that was 9 marks maybe?)

It also asked why a business wanting to take over M&S would be interested in their data (all of which you are given and it's 16 marks I think)

It also asked you about driving and restraining forces of an airline at one point and I think that might've been a 9 marker as well, but I hadn't revised it and felt it went okay because it was pretty self explanatory as there was data that came along with it
