    What are your section B ones? I've purely got section A ones from talks we had from outside visitors and a little bit of research

    Research on businesses doesn't have to be hugely in-depth. As long as it evidences your line of analysis sufficiently, you'll be absolutely fine. To secure good, the best strategy is to compare and contrast examples where possible. Examples don't just have to be businesses either - they can be concepts, policies, a whole range of things. Smart cities, Internet of Everything and big data would count as evidence for some section A essays, and likewise, the EU referendum, sugar tax and the national living wage would all constitute valid examples for some section B essays.

    On my to-do list, there is...

    1) Watch the tutor2u content videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=P...&v=MfL_0ko4T3o)

    2) Read through my examples I've gathered and learn them (essentially I have topic-sorted examples on some flashcards)

    3) Read over some model essays and watch the tutor2u videos on essay planning (https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=P...&v=g8dJj1bFrGk)

    4) Practice a few essay questions; section B ones from past papers and section A ones from the tutor2u BUSS4 conference booklet (someone posted a picture of this earlier)

    If I still don't feel prepared, I'll probably make a few flashcards on each topic and potential questions (and points relating to those questions).

    Some topics I have 3, some I have 6, varied really. Given we get a choice of questions, there are certain topics (ie the environment) that I know I'm very unlikely to choose, so I've focused less on them.

    Taught the various topics but it was never made clear that there was a definite difference between the two sections of the types of questions.

    I know this is a stupid question but what is pestle and what are the subjects that we have to revise for section b. I'm really well prepared for section A but have no idea what to do for b.

    Social
    Technological
    Legal
    Environmental factors
