    Hi, I'm thinking of taking business studies for a level along with drama, history and politics and was just wondering what anybody though of it and what their experiences/ opinions were?

    AS Business Studies is easy if you enjoyed it at GCSE, but you have to remember quite a bit. A2 is much easier more general knowledge than anything.

    Business Studies is the most useful and applicable subject you could possibly study!! I absolutely love the subject obviously it depends on the exam board but it is mainly based on the functional areas of a business which is very interesting and engaging particularly if you enjoy current affairs and politics as it gives you a much wider perspective. Many people say it is easy but do not be fooled as business is only easy if you enjoy the subject and have a willingness to learn and a passion for the subject (I know plenty of people achieving U grades). However saying that it is a nice structured subject where many students can receive A grades.
