Business A-Level at Egglescliffe School

Course description

Students will need to be willing to further develop their analytical and problem solving skills and how to apply these skills to different businesses. There is a strong emphasis on evaluation, so the ability to write in detail and develop ideas is necessary.

Course content

Economics and Business looks at the way consumers interact with business and the way businesses interact with each other and the world around them. Major issues that will be covered on the course include:

  • International Business and the Economy
  • How the Government can control the economy
  • Starting a business enterprise
  • Decision making in business and government
  • You will also develop research and communication skills

Entry requirements

5+ A*-C grades in GCSEs or equivalent qualifications including English Language and Maths.

Subject Specific

Grade C minimum in English and Maths, plus at least three other subjects. GCSE Business is useful, but by no means essential. Usually half the students on the course have not studied GCSE Business. An interest in business current affairs is useful.

Financial information

Are there any expenses involved?

Expenses are minimal, though there are opportunities to participate in field studies abroad. Reading a quality newspaper is important.

Future opportunities
