And I actually wouldn't regard Business as soft, I took Economics AS and it was so much easier, purely because you knew what was going to come up in the exam.
With Business Studies I think it depends on the exam board:
AQA Business is very hard, starts off easy in Unit 1 and Unit 3 and 4 move onto 'undergraduate level;' Unit 3, you have to revise for HR, Finance including ratios and other analysis, Marketing including elasticity and other measures of demand, and Operations. The killer is, you do not know what's gonna come up.
Unit 4 comprises of 2 45mark questions where one is based on your own research (this year its corporate social responsibility, last year it was recession) and you apply your research to the question and case study. The second question draws on your knowledge from the whole Business course.
Edexcel and OCR Business Studies is much much easier.
If Business was so soft, why are the requirements for Business & Management / International Business / Accounting and Management so high??
