In my personal experience, gcse business studies was the easiest exam there was to pass - it required barely any revision as at gcse level, all of the content was basically common sense.

If you just make sure to pay attention in class, you shouldn’t find yourself needing much more extra revision time outside of class.

The one thing I would recommend you do is practise and follow to a T the format your teacher provides you with for answering the 6, 9, and 12 marks questions. The exam is marked heavily on whether you include enough points into the longer answers, and so it is always good to follow a format to ensure you are including the relevant amount of points (eg. 2 with an explanation for each in the 6 markers).

Usually in business you start with coursework and it gets graded then at the end of year 11 you do an exam. Your coursework grades are used in your final grades and tbh you can't really get ahead in business without learning which you have to apply everything you learnt to your coursework. Hope this helped
