Key Stage 4
Business Studies at key stage 4 is becoming increasingly popular with more and more students choosing it as one of their options each year. We are currently studying the AQA GCSE. This course comprises of 6 units covering a wide variety of different topic. The units are as follows:
- Business in the Real World
- Influences on Business
- Business operations
- Human Resources
The course is assessed externally at the end of the two-year period by two examinations, both of which last 1/2 hours.
This course is both active and enjoyable and the theory is brought to life each year by the use of up-to-date business examples. You need to be good at communicating and explaining your ideas, not afraid of learning new things and working with numbers to solve business problems.
