Assessment of Course
The Business Studies exam paper is not tiered. This means that you have as much chance of getting a grade 9 as anyone else in your class.
There are two examined papers with different sections that are worth different weightings. All topics will be taught along with exam skills over the two year course.
What will I study on this course?
Ever wondered what makes some businesses so successful? Have you thought about which are the best companies to work for? Or do you fancy running your own business?
As a customer, student, and member of the community you are a stakeholder in many businesses. Now find out more behind what you see and experience to discover what makes a business really work.
Through out the course we will look at how entrepreneurs find gaps in the market to target, how they launch a product to customer, the logistics behind the production of products and how they fund starting up a business.
Business Studies develops your skills of research, problem solving, communication and team work, all of which are essential in the job market.
There are a range of careers paths that can be taken with the study of Business Studies including marketing, banking, accountancy, sales, as well as how to manage other people. GCSE Business Studies will allow to carry on to A Level or University, but it is not an essential requirement.
This subject can be taken at A Level without having studied it at GCSE.
