Okay so five down – (Marketing, Strategy, Org behaviour, finance, business economics), two to go (macroeconomics and Accounting).
They’ve been going okay so far but ideas of great marks are pretty much out of the window. I didn’t do enough work over the xmas holidays and have been realising this every day. But I feel like I’m on the home straight. I mustn’t lose momentum. I was feeling pretty stressed over last weekend but am finally beginning to get my head round financial statements which is convenient, given the exam is on Friday. Though I am taking fairlyhigh risk strategies in terms of the number of topics I am revising.
Business economics is not my best subject, but one of the most interesting. I answered questions on tax (what would be the effect of an increase on stamp duty) and externalities (should the price of cigarettes be left to the free market) and price discrimination (I talked about how companies can make more money by having entry fees and per use charges, and why sometimes you want to decrease the quality of software to make more money).
