the extended response was not that straightforward and really narrowly selected COMPARED to the specimen paper. but i guess its still broad question that you can link everything you know into it I guess.

I wished the response was on operations or HR though. no marketing strategies/ no financial strategies ... WHY -=(

Qantas also colluded to price fixing its fuel surcharges with others, and got fined $68 million by the US Department of Justice for it.

You couldn't just right about ethics, the point was very specific in linking ethics to MARKETING.

one time I wrote about human resource cycle instead of strategies and I got a 7/20 so I think the right syllabus dot points are essential.

I talked about debt/equity as well as retained profits+owner's equity

I sorta just said anything with the case studies.
Seasonal variation affects cash flow, short term loans help purchase needed inputs to produce products --> liquidity, hence solvency
long term for growth (buying a new factory)
long term for R&D --> innovation (competitive advantage)
new equipment which helps efficiency
loans to purchase greater volume of stock in anticipation of seasonal variation i.e. increased spending in new years and christmas period
venture capitalists --> IT boom

how majority of successful companies began from simple origins, and the injection of large sums of money facilitated growth because they had the capital to advertise, fund marketing research, operations etc etc


i'm not very happy with my linking with profitability objects though

i did mention that since facebook became a public company, they were able to grow and purchase other companies etc etc


i'm really scared i failed today
