A Level Business Studies at Merchants’ Academy
Why should I choose Business?
Aside from the fact that it is; exciting, critical to all human life, could result in extreme wealth and is the preferred subject of winners in life. Business is the most relevant of all A-Levels. We will all work in businesses when we are older, improving our knowledge of business can help us:
• Be more successful in your career
• Get what you want when dealing with businesses
• Learn to analyse complex problems and provide carefully considered solutions
• Starting a Business
• Financial Planning
• People in Business
• Media, Marketing and PR
• How to be a manager
You will complete exams in January and June. I am crazy about exam technique and ensuring pupils know how to answer questions in order to achieve the best grades. In class we will always look at an exam question, this will lead either to peer assessment using the mark scheme or I will assess the work giving you clear feedback. You will also have reviewed past exam papers and completed mocks prior to your exams.
Taking Business studies will allow you to succeed in any job but it also leads directly to many careers: Accounting, Marketing & PR, Human Resources, project management...
If you are planning on going to university Business Studies fits comfortably with a vast range of degree courses, due to its nature of problem solving and the high levels of analysis and evaluation of actions involved it is a well regarded academic subject.
