This is a two-year linear program, with students sitting three examinations at the end of the second year to form the A-level grade. Throughout the two years the students will receive regular assessments which will be in the style of the examination to help prepare as well as in class activities. All work will be assessed against the examination board standards and students will receive feedback.
Upon completing this course you will be equipped to move into university, a higher apprenticeship or into work. You could choose from a range of specialist business-related degrees, such as finance, retail and marketing.
Students will be expected to purchase the recommended textbook for both years. It is also beneficial for students to have two lever-arch folders and dividers to keep resources given and notes made organised.
