    Which A levels shall I take? I am definitely a future entrepreneur. I don't want to go to university. After sixth form, I want to take a gap year and then set up my own business. What A levels shall I do and how many?

    Business Studies is a must if you want to start a business, Economics is also a useful one. Also try to pick at least one facilitating subject e.g. History, Maths and so on.

    At my school there are two Business Studies options, there is Business Studies and Business Applied. The difference is that Business Studies is just theory with a final exam and Business Applied is more practical with assessments all the way through. Which is better for me?

    Do you know what kind of business you want to start? Are there any particular subjects that could help you with that/make you more familiar with the service or products you will sell?

    Both are very good options from my experience, but as you have said, Applied Business is more practical and hands on, so that is probably the better option.
