The CIMA Examiner will prepare five variants of the Ops ICS exam for each quarterly sitting, I recommend that as part of your exam preparation, you review the documentation from the February 2015 sitting.
DO NOT consider the Valley Spring case at all! Use the tasks to review your approach to identifying the requirements within each task, ensure you have the technical knowledge required to respond accordingly to each task or address your own knowledge gaps. In addition to this, you should also be mindful of the areas that the Examiners Report identifies students struggled with.
Whilst undertaking your own review, identify if any of the technical knowledge required in each task may be relevant to Merchants and thus developing your skill of application to the scenario to tailor your answer and improve your marks overall.
