Easy paper but.....

For the last short answer question I used a new booklet. I wrote the question number on the front and wrote on the last page of the extra writing paper see next booklet but then forgot to label the booklet on the blue sheet. So I just recorded 1 booklet for the short answers. Will they see this and mark it? Or will the booklet just get thrown out. It will only cost me 1 mark since I wrote three lines but it’s just for piece of mind....

I do agree though the multiple choice were better than previous years which is good and short answers wasn't too bad either.

In relation to your situation, I think if you handed up the booklet that will be okay. I don't think they will throw it out since you wrote "see next booklet" underneath the question (that would've been handed up with your short answer writing booklet) which will have the rest of what you wrote for 24c too. Also if you wrote down on the spare booklet that you used "Section II" or "24c" and filled out your BOS and centre number too you should be fine. I highly doubt they will oversee it.

P.S. Damn dude, you seem to be smashing all your papers good job!

Thanks! Hope this is the case. Yeah multis were too bad usually they have a few tricky/ vague questions which you are torn on but I didn’t think so this year.

Global Influences on Financial Markets are:
- Global Economic Outlook
- Availability of Funds
- Interest/Exchange Rates
- AND GLOBAL FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT!

I think you have answered the question correctly : )

P.S. I do apologise to other individuals who were stressing out about the question. : (

I just stated how if they were to expand to Europe, their strength of having a loyal audience would be infleunced by other markets with different behavioural, socio-cultural etc influences that will impact upon the ways that they view the product. Therefore the business is removing their strength for and opportunity to expand into wider markets.
The threat of a shrinking Australian market will have been eliminated from the business's threats and the opportunity to expand as they sell in foreign countries may lead to positive business performance
I said some more but totally forgot the others.

I did both. How they are influenced by interest rates, economic outlook etc. and then create strategies as a result of this influence and talked about exchange rates, hedging, derivatives and methods of international payment.

if you take a look on the business syllabus under 'global financial influences' its economic outlook, availability of funds and interest rates. hedging, derivatives are financial stategies

At parallaxd12, that would also be correct because that's under influences too. I just forgot to add that point because I'm a bit tired and forgot (however, that doesn't excuse the forgetfulness). Sorry about that!
