Hi,I can tell you that this unit is more about understanding what the effects on the business are for the present and the future and by analysing this through SWOT, PESTLE and Porters 5 forces you should be able to figure the exam as whole because, if you did unit 2 you will realise it is encapsulated in this unit as well. Also Unit 3 personal finance helps a lot with giving financial examples (Cash Flow forecasts and Margins).

You need to follow my guidelines on structure clearly and precisely:

Your report should always follow the below simple structure:

● Executive summary
○ This is a short introduction to what is in your report, you don’t need to go into
a lot of detail but explain what you are going to detail

● Key factors
○ Here you should have an overview of factors that are important in the decision making process for the business to consider and here you should use an analytical tool such as Porter’s 5 Forces to analyse the situation

● Financial data interpretation
○ For this paper you are looking at net and gross profit margin comparative
analysis using the forecasted changes based on each option being
considered in the paper

● Risks to consider
○ Your analytical tool should have identified risks that need to be considered, these risks should be:
■ Financial ■ Legal
■ Strategic

● Proposal
○ This is your proposed option that the business should consider based on your
evidence and the decision making process - You need to justify with as much evidence as possible why the business should choose option 1 or option 2
Your presentation should follow the same format as above but be bullet points and have speaker notes as if you were going to present this to an audience


This is how I was told and have always used.

Do you know the dates of your exams?
