    GCSE Business is pants, but I imagine you would take the exam at the same time as everyone else, so you'd have to take it in June-ish.

    Next Summer is your only option but it would be hard to achieve as a private candidate as you would need someone to supervise your controlled assessment.

    I'd focus on your exsisting GCSE's unless you know you are going to get a top mark and it would affect your others. You arent going to lose out on anything by not having studied it and GCSE Spanish is more useful imo.

    I am fine in every other subject mostly A's and one or two B's but the only one i am failing atm is Spanish which i am probably gonna get a C if i had never flopped this one speaking assessment and i might drop spanish anyway
    btw do you have to do coursework for business gcse or is theree an option where you do not have to?

    I think Economics GCSE might not have coursework. All Business Studies GCSEs do. However, you'd be better off just concentrating on what you are doing. You can take A level Business without having taken GCSE.

    No idea youd have to look the syllabus for each up and decide which oen you want to do.
    My point is I wouldnt overplay the ysefulness of a single GCSE except to have Maths and English.
