    Hi, can someone tell me where the PEST and SWOT analysis comes in for component 1? I thought it was D3 but having read some of the resources this doesn't appear to be the case. Resources show D3 is choosing 3 factors (internal and external) which are having the biggest impact on one enterprise studied. I must admit I am getting rather confused with what is required for the merit and distinctions tasks. Thanks:(

    It is under the Merit part of the criteria. I had to check myself with the exam board and they took a while to get back to me. They seem to think that a table with bullet points is Analysis!
    I just got my students to think about one of the businesses they had already written about and write an explanation about why they have a certain 'Strength'. Then work through their understanding of the business they had chosen.

    Thanks. Did the exam board give you any breakdown of this?
