Edexcel GCSE Business Studies is offered at KS4. There are 2 written papers, one of which is a multiple choice paper and the other requires students to write in depth answers after reading a selection of case studies.
The controlled assessment is completed in school and the student is required to research a small business to answer one of the set questions set by the exam board.
Students study a variety of business concepts and are encouraged to relate these to current events. Students are encouraged to be independent thinkers.
