IC Optical: Pre-Seen Analysis

The video preview from Astranti on the pre-seen analysis on the May 2016 MCS is now live and can be viewed below. The tutor goes through the pre-seen material issued by CIMA and points out the key facts and gets you thinking about the company IC Optical.

Understanding the pre-seen material is key to passing the CIMA case study exams and these videos will give you a solid footing when approaching the exam.


You can find the full set of IC Optical case study videos here.

IC Optical: Strategic Analysis

Alongside the pre-seen analysis you should also consider the case study from a strategic point of view. What are IC Optical’s strategic objectives and what can they improve on as a business? What are their weaknesses? Answers to these kind of questions will give you more depth to your responses on exam day and will give the “bigger picture” perspective.

The preview video below is well worth a watch for MCS students.
