hey,
so I'm someone who doesn't really mind exams its just the amount of revision and content for me. but whilst aiming for grade 7s in everything, i think i would just be me being lazy to not choose a levels and to go for more course work based btecs.
so my question is for anyone who does business a level, what are your personal ops on it? does it require a lot of revision? do you recommend to only choose it if you have a personal interest in the subject? what are some of the main things you learn? And would you overall recommend it?

14.13%
I'm not sure (24)
4.29%

31.84%
I have already dropped out (12)
2.15%
I'm not a current university student (266)

this is why you should revise hard for business a level - its 10 x easier when you study for it

For me, it is a subject I struggle in so much. I don't know a set way to study for it. My business teacher thinks that his methods of note taking is so effective that if it works for him, it will work for everyone too🤦*♂️. In addition to that, he will always tell us to finish Cornell Notes and do Ezyeducation which to be really honest didn't help me at all. I am pretty much stuck in business😢

Hi! I take business a-level and I love it. The subjects we cover are really interesting and you can apply it to the 'real-life' business world. The maths can be confusing but easily overcome with practise. The downfall being that there is a lot of content to cover but non of it is really very hard. I think it would be better to take it if you have a personal interest if you are aiming for a grade above a B but in my opinion you can just get away with taking it as that is what a lot of people do. I would definitely recommend it

That also a source I use for studying business A levels. I do AQA Business which for me is hard to find any sample essays for specific topics

Do you think it’s doable tho? Is the struggle just with the revision? Also are most the people their like people wanting to become business men/women?

Yes, most certainly. Depends largely on someone's perception the business studies in general. In my case yes(I plan to be a real estate agent), for other people I can't really say but a few of my friends do want to do something related to business.
