That’s why we create 3 brand new mock exams for each case study sitting, each tailored to the latest pre-seen and based on topics we think you are most likely to see in your exam.

Our case study mocks will:

  • Test your overall knowledge of the syllabus and the latest pre-seen

Mock exam synopses – November 2019 – GSC

MCS Mock Exam 1 - Synopsis
This mock is difficult. There is a lot of unseen content to digest and time management is key. The mock looks at the strategic, financial and operational aspects of the introduction of new innovative product.

The first section discusses competitor analysis due to the threat from a competitor. How to manage competitive risks using the TARA framework is then discussed.

The second section looks at the pricing strategies for a new product. It then considers whether cost savings should be used to reduce the selling price further.

The third section looks at how to build competitive advantage for the new product. It also discusses whether a new supplier should be used if it is a related party.

The final section discusses TQM techniques to improve product quality. It then looks at the impacts of debt finance to fund the new product.

MCS Mock Exam 2 - Synopsis
This is a challenging mock that includes a lot of evaluation of a significant amount of background information and associated reference material including financial information. Many students may find they get bogged down in the volume of information and will then find that time management becomes a challenge.

This technical evaluation of the material provided needs to be combined with knowledge of the pre-seen to do analysis and make recommendations around current internal and external issues affecting GSC.

The issues facing GSC are wide ranging and include if and how GSC should enter into a new foreign market. You will need to show an understanding of factors impacting pricing for existing products in new markets as well as understanding what are relevant costs and the impact of a potential takeover of a smaller company on GSC financial reporting. You will need to have a good understanding of gearing and risk. You will also need to have a good grasp of the pre-seen material and some understanding of the industry to apply your knowledge of big data. Internal issues include how to establish a new product development team and budget behaviour.

MCS Mock Exam 3 - Synopsis
This is a challenging mock that includes a lot of evaluation of a significant amount of background information and associated reference material including financial information. Many students may find they get bogged down in the volume of information and will then find that time management becomes a challenge.

This technical evaluation of the material provided needs to be combined with knowledge of the pre-seen to do analysis and make recommendations around current internal and external issues affecting GSC.

The issues facing GSC are wide ranging and include how GSC should disclose revenue information and consider any overlap with segmental reporting. You will need to show an understanding of the GSC value chain and how divisional performance can be measured. You will need to consider how GSC can recruit and retain key staff and manage its outsourced manufacturers through service level agreements. You will need to have a good grasp of the pre-seen material and some understanding of the industry to apply your knowledge to the scenario’s. It will also be useful to have a good knowledge of theory around leadership skills and technical knowledge around executive share options.

The best management case study mocks. I appreciated very much the mock exam marking and feedback service. This helped me to prepare better for the exam.

“I got the mock exams from Astranti for the MCS exam in 2018 and I was able to pass in one shot. I did not go for any classes and totally depended on Astranti for its study material. I especially recommend Astranti for self studying students like me.”
