ANSWER

Every requirement (be it at high, medium or low level, every process step and control flow, every entity, attribute and relationship) must be contributing to one or more SMART objectives for a project. If a new requirement at any level is proposed it must be mapped to the objective(s) it contributes to. If it does not map it means either an objective is missing (and therefore a significant amount of analysis is also missing) or the requirement MUST be out of scope as it does not contribute to project success.

SMART stands for:
Specific
Measurable
Achievable
Realistic
Traceable and Time-Bound

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
