Mock exam synopses
SCS mock exam 1 - synopsis
Baggage handlers at CCI airport are going on strike. What impact will this have on Arrfield and what actions should the company take? Further, it has come to light that the internal audit team had been notified of the situation with the baggage handlers before strike action was proposed. So, how could the effectiveness of Arrfield’s internal audit department be improved?
The viability of a new runway at CCI airport is also being reviewed. The ethical issues in relation to this project need to be considered closely. On another note, Arrfield’s reliance on non-renewable energy sources has come under scrutiny by a newspaper article. How will the article affect Arrfield’s share price and what can the company do to minimise the impact of this? The baggage handler strike has also sparked a review of Arrfield’s internal security controls in order to ensure their robustness.
The new runway project brings with it associated risks. Arrfield’s Board needs to manage these risks and the impact they may have on stakeholders. Finally, Arrfield is also considering why it might pro-actively report its carbon emissions in its annual CSR report.
SCS mock exam 2 - synopsis
Recent media attention on “ghost flights” has taken the Board of Arrfield unaware. Two strategic options on unused slots policy are being considered by the Board and a quick response is needed, including considering the possible impact on all stakeholders.
Technology already plays a major role in Arrfield’s overall strategy and an existing, newly released system could potentially play a part in reducing the carbon footprint of the company. But what benefits would this bring and what are the financial implications of such an investment?
Finally, all this technology brings associated risks. A major cyber breach within the industry has Arrfield questioning its cyber vulnerabilities and what its cyber policy should include.

Then, interests of key stakeholders with suggestions for managing them for the project to invest in new and upgraded facilities for persons with reduced mobility is considered. Non-financial key performance indicators to track the above investment is discussed.
To understand how risk management is embedded into organisational processes and decision making, Arrfield’s ERM is evaluated based on the COSO ERM Framework.
Six non-hub airports are proposed to be acquired by Arrfield in Farland, and the impact of the wider economic and political risks of this acquisition are analysed.
Arrfield’s CCM Airport was a controversial acquisition. Due to a changing political climate in Norland, Markus Jokela has proposed a Management Buy Out of CCM to avoid government action. The possible success of this deal is discussed and analysed. Also, the possible methods of valuing CCM Airport is considered.
