Some, in general, business studies is a bit of common sense and critical thinking..

Business studies is seen as a soft subject and it does have a lot of basic logic but i'd say they're both challenging in their own right, but it's probably more worth it going for economics

I'm doing business studies as a GCSE now, won't it be better to do it as an A level as i know a bit about it? Whereas if i start economics new, ofcourse i'll learn about it but i won't be as confident compared to doing business studies

I did business gcse and I'd say 70% of it is logic, lke calculating profit. However, if you do aqa like I did then you'll know how annoying the questions can be and that's probably the hardest thing about business studies (or so my girlfriend tells me).

Your logic is sound in that you'll have some background but I don't think your gcse knowledge is too important to the a level course.

Economics wouldn't hurt but I gotta say I had fun in business studies gcse and the content was a walk in the park. If you feel like you can definitely get an A in business studies then I don't see why you don't go for that, unless of course you want to do economics in uni or something

Would economics A level be similar to the content of business? What would differ roughly
