the exams is still going on, guys has acca been compromised????
I’m really shocked seeing the questions online at 1:07pm, exams finishes 1:15pm…June 18, 2012 at 12:12 pm #101172
is it about other strategic options? (TOWS, Ansoff, Generic)June 18, 2012 at 12:35 pm #101173
Did question 2, 4 first, question 1 wrote relatively little. Did not prepare mission and obj quite well. Overally is ok.June 18, 2012 at 12:37 pm #101174
any one can tell me question1(b) can use PESTEL or not ???thxJune 18, 2012 at 12:53 pm #101175
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 optionsJune 18, 2012 at 12:54 pm #101176
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.June 18, 2012 at 1:08 pm #101177
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.June 18, 2012 at 1:09 pm #101178

It was the first time I wanted to give up in the middle of the exam.. I am so disappointed with my self! Very time pressured and very boring scenarios!June 18, 2012 at 1:37 pm #101181
It was ok but time was not enough. 1b, Ansoff, market dev,pro dev, market penetration, diversification and then have to evaluate? By SFA model?June 18, 2012 at 1:38 pm #101182
1b is actually nightmare.
it is not clearJune 18, 2012 at 1:39 pm #101183
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
