    Ok here it goes.
    If in a question you have 2 options. E.g. two marketing strategies, you give an advantage of both in separate paragraphs. Then, you write an overall evaluation including: Your opinion on what strategy to choose, why you think this, What this depends on i.e. the factors affecting this, if it's beneficial in the long or short term, and whether this will help the company to achieve their business objective

    If you only have one option, then you give an advantage and a disadvantage and then do an evaluation like before. (In these paragraphs, you should use SLI: State - the advantage/disadvantage, Link - Reference to the case study, Impact - Mention effects on the business. These paragraphs are 2 marks each and so you can work out that the evaluation is very important (5 marks)!!!

    It is also good to start with an opening introduction sentence like "Both options are suitable for this business. An advantage for...."

    Follow the above steps in detail and you are sorted. Good Luck!!!
