Since I don't see a thread for this I made it.
Personally I found that exam way easier than I expected.

The low mark answers I can remember that I wrote down

- Costs ( DESIGN MIX 1 MARK)
- Selling Assets ( Internal source of finance 1 MARK)
- Tarrif ( Barrier Of international trade 1 MARK)
- 25 % ( AVERAGE RATE OF RETURN 2 MARK )
- CV and App. Form ( What ppl might send to a business 2 MARK)
- 100 % ( PER. INCREASE 2 MARK )
- £800 thousand something ( 2 MARK)
- 76. 16 or 61 ( GROSS PROFIT 2.d.p. 2 MARK)
- Can use advertising on social media to target the younger target market ( Outline one method Candy can promote their app)
- Post-sale services ( 1 STAGE OF SALES PROCESS 1 MARK)
- Tesco ( supermarket with market share greater than sainsbury 1 MARK )

Woah I don't think its 3 million. It was sales revenue - gross profit. You had to rearrange the equations

Yeah the permanent contracts question ? One point was how it could motivate workers , on the other hand it could increase costs and health and safety legislation may need to be implemented I found is easier than paper 1 because I actually finished 10 minutes before the full time limit , which I couldn't do in paper 1.

For the last 12 marker I did the following:

Changing to fairttraders is bad due to pressure groups. This is because it could be considered as a way of tricking customers. The pressure group create poor brand image and destroy reputation. This results in less people purchasing from Sainsbury’s. This decreases market share from 17% even lower. This hence decreases overall net profit margin, and destroys brands determination in being ethical.

In contrast changing is good as it saves money (500M) . This reduces variable costs as less money is spent on raw materials (from fair trade sources). This is good as it can be used to increase the wages of employees and provide them with the extra 4.4% (£8/hour) in order to compete with other brands such as Aldi. This could be considered ethical as they’re not taking advantage of the employees. This also encourages them to work more productively, increasing sales service, and creating a good brand image. This will likely result in repeat purchases, and increases market share from the 17% to compete with Tesco.

CONCLUSION - I chose it was bad because they’re blatantly tricking customers into purchasing their products through the incredibly similar names.

For the permanent contract I did
- the firm has control over employee so they could increase productivity
- the firm still has to pay ‘sick wage’ or ‘sick pay’ etc.
