Business Studies GCSE
Prepare learners to use economics and business knowledge for real-life work challenges by developing their innovative, creative thinking, leadership and entrepreneurial skills.
Economics is an extremely challenging, though hugely rewarding subject that evaluates the performance of business and the economy. Economics is about choice and the impact of our choices on each other, considering how economies best manage scarce resources to improve standards of living. It relates to every aspect of our lives, from the decisions we make as individuals or families, to the structures created by governments and firms.
The A Level Economics course has two main areas of focus:
The course gives students a comprehensive understanding of economic theories and teaches them how to apply these principles to their day to day lives.
The Economics course teaches students to evaluate and assess the world around them, allowing them to develop analytical skills and sound judgement. The understanding of current affairs, coupled with competencies developed throughout the course lead to a fulfilling and enriching academic experience. The Economics A Level course is also an excellent subject to help bridge the gap between Sixth Form education and University.
A-Level Business Studies helps students:
This four-unit specification requires students to develop their ability to acquire a range of important and transferable skills including data skills, presenting arguments, making judgements and conducting research. This course has no coursework or controlled assessment.
Although not an entry requirement, this course is particularly suitable for students who have studied GCSE Business Studies as this specification builds on the concepts and skills they have already learned.
