Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

**** Parts of this deserve more stars, other parts less. It is mostly well researched but does not have a clear structure to help the reader. It is hard to tell what is fact and what is analysis by the writer. At times it just looks like the writer has written everything they know about Tesco and hope that it meets the brief.
