Response to the question

In summary, the report discusses the potential of eCommerce websites from the business point of view and the consumer's point of view. This is in-depth and shows extensive understanding. However the report doesn't link any of this knowledge with any real case studies. The report clearly states a number of potential features which eCommerce websites will use in the near future. In addition the report mentions how consumer's potential to purchase products/services on-line will increase, and this report is balanced and in-depth. These points, do link back to the main title of how eCommerce websites will change in the future and any potential area's which may be adapted within the UK market.

Level of analysis

The report states that eCommerce websites rivalry will 'intensify', however the student hasn't mention the reasons behind this, which is needed for an distinction/A*. The report clearly shows that the student has understanding of eCommerce websites, however the report doesn't list any examples or case studies where the method is being used. For example the student could place a case study, where it states 'but should also pay attention to simple details such as eye-catching layouts and user friendliness of their websites'. The report could show websites which are of good layout and implemented the above suggestion.

Quality of writing

Some of the sentences doesn't make sense (Such as, 'Number of e-commerce deals will rise extremely every passing year', and when reading though it's quite clear that the student hasn't re-read their answer to check if the writing makes sense. This needs to be re-written in some small area's. The student has mention technical terms such as 'Traditional Stores', although for higher marks the student would need to explain what this means and describe a real example of a traditional store. The report could state that an traditional store is within the high-street and an example may be HMV.
