    besides question 1, i felt that all the ques behind are very hard. To be honest, not an easy paper. Now pray for a pass!

    Pestel can be used for external environment and strategic position…I don’t think it will be appropriate for strategic options. Ansoff, genetic and strategy clock can be used for options

    A strategic anaylasis invovles any of the internal or external methods and a combination of this and other factors, pestel, swot, and any other.

    BY the time we are posting exam is over we are out of the room. There isnt any compromise.

    Quite surprised at the lack of core frameworks, no pestel, 5 forces swot, no SAF. Completely different to December 2011 paper.

    1b) I assume we had to discuss, porters general strategy, alliances, acquisitions etc.

    I think pestel is the external environment. Not the strategic options. Sorry!

    Nearly had panic attack in first hour, and accomplished nothing. Had a good section B as the exam went on, but that really threw me. I have studied 15-20 hours a week for 3 months on this subject. Was my first attempt but still not good enough. Hopefully better luck for P1 on wednesday
