Edexcel GCSE Business Studies

GCSE Business Studies introduces the world of small businesses and looks at what makes someone a successful business person. Pupils find out how to develop an idea and spot an opportunity, and turn that into a successful business. They develop an understanding of how to make a business effective and manage money, and see how the world around us affects small businesses and all the people involved.

The course is assessed through two examinations and one controlled assessment.

  • Unit 1: Introduction to Small Business (Examination)
  • Unit 2: Controlled Assessment (Pupils must select one of five tasks)
  • Unit 3: Building a Business (Examination)
