    What is Business studies GCSE all about?

    What is Business studies GCSE all about?
    I did OCR and can recall it generally revolving around the structures of businesses, such as plcs and ltd companies as compared to sole proprietors and partners. Further emphasis was placed upon ethical business practice, such as recycling and using sustainable means of production. Franchises also occupied a significant amount, alongside means of sourcing raw materials (Just in Time etc) and interdependence of the business sectors. Thats all I can remember off the top of my head- my only tip would be to regurgitate everything you know in exams and use common sense basically- worked well for me.

    Only simple maths is used, such as breakeven etc
