Given the 20 topics (Information Pack - Section 7.b) most students find it difficult to choose a topic and the following pointers would help you on this for some extent:
Certain topics require Primary data (Interviews & Questionnaires), while other topics could be either done using Secondary data (Internet Research / Library Research) or a combination of both.
As the research should be based on an organisation, you need to consider the possibility of having access to the relevant source of information not only to proceed with the research and analysis but also taking in to consideration the ability to meet the assessment criteria.
Topic 8 & 15 requires the organisation to be chosen within the given Industry. Should you be planning for P35 (Nov 17), note that the Industry for T8 & 15 would be updated. In addition there are also probable changes for T17-CG and T20-CSR.
Examiners’ Articles & Guidance:
The Information Pack and Resubmission Guide, includes specific articles by examiners and moderators that provide specific guidance / clarifications on the expectations on certain topics. In addition, the examiners’ comments on failed projects would assist students to understand the Do’s and Don’ts clearly, where the compilation is available under the tutoring session material section.
