Business Studies involves a range of skills, both quantitative and qualitative, and complements virtually any other A level course. Business Studies represents an excellent choice for candidates who are seeking breadth without venturing into wholly unfamiliar territory.
For those planning university studies, it encourages skills useful for any course. For those planning a career in business, or one where business techniques will be useful, it provides opportunities for developing practical skills, as well as an overview of business theory and issues.
For anyone, it encourages an interest in the world outside school and provides some excellent life skills in basic financial understanding. Use this section to find useful resources to accompany your studies.
Over the two years of study you will complete four units of work. These units combine coursework, controlled assessments and an external examination. You will need to follow a strict 'Deadlines/Time Plan' created by your teacher and the exam board.
Most of the assignments and resources will be located on the VLE.
