BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS

EDEXCEL GCSE/IGCSE COURSES

 Why is Lionel Messi paid over £500,000 every single week?!

Why do people queue for days outside Apple stores to buy their latest phones?

Why does Coca-Cola spend billions on advertising when everyone knows them already?

 

These are some of the fascinating questions you'll be able to answer when you study both Business and Economics. These are two incredibly interesting, practical, and valuable subjects, especially for those who are interested in real-life applications. We'll be taking students through the entire curriculum and fully preparing them for their GCSE/IGCSE exams.

Why study Business?

Whether you're an aspiring entrepreneur or simply want to know more about businesses and how they run, this is the course for you. 

 

You will develop a range of transferable skills, such as:

  • problem-solving

  • logical thinking

Both our Business and Economics courses are fun, engaging and most importantly, interesting!

What is the difference between  Economics and Business?

Quite simply, Economics is much broader in scope. It looks at issues on a macro-level, which is like a birds-eye view. E.g. what happens to the entire country when we increase tax? It also looks at issues on a micro-level.

Business Studies is much narrower in focus. It concerns decisions made within businesses. It looks at issues on a ‘nano’-level (e.g. how does a change in packaging increase a products life).

There will be a reasonable amount of overlap between Business and Economics. This will help further your understanding if you decide to do both subjects, as you'll recognise the business and economic implications of different scenarios. This will make it easier to prepare for the exams.

What age's can join?

As no prerequisite knowledge is needed apart from simple maths skills, this course is open to students from year 7 to year 10. Parents will know best whether their child is ready to start a GCSE level course.

Can my child do International GCSEs even if we live in the UK?

Yes! International GCSEs are more common than you may think. They're usually preferred by homeschoolers due to being exam-based only and by many private schools as they are internationally recognised. However, if you wish to sit Edexcel GCSE Business, it is very similar and we will accommodate for the slight differences. There currently isn't an option for Edexcel GCSE Economics.
