Changes Made by OCR to VGL’s Dividends & Retained Profit Figure for 2015
On 1 January 2016: OCR stated (on the following link: http://ocr.org.uk/ocr-for/exams-officers/support-and-tools/siu/gce-business-studies-111215/) that: ‘Appendix 2 has incorrect transposed figures shown in the column for 2015 under both Dividends and Retained Profit. Dividends for 2015 should read 3.8 (£m) and Retained Profit should read 1.0 (£m)’.
Make sure you are using the correct case study and the correct APT Analysis. This is a link to the updated OCR F297 case study: http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/251932-unit-f297-pre-release-case-study-june-2016.pdf
The changes OCR made to the dividends and retained profit figure affected our original APT Analysis (published in December): page 6 on stakeholders and corresponding bullet point 7 (under ‘Strengths’) on page 57 of the APT Analysis. These pages were updated accordingly and your copy of the analysis should clearly state that these pages were updated.
