Why?
I don't enjoy it doesn't mean that you won't either. I take btec business and I have to write a report about my chosen business and if it wasn't for covid then the school would organised trips for me to interview the owner business and little things like that. I suggest you read what your course is about and what you have to do and then revaluate if you will enjoy it and if its a subject you could get a good grade in. Hope this helped

Hey Estudian

I studied GCSE Business in high school and really enjoyed it. Of course everyone will have a different experience, but for me I really enjoyed learning the fundamentals of business, which has helped shape what I have gone on to study. I moved on to study Business in college and then Marketing at undergraduate level and Advertising and Marketing at masters level here at Hull. I think there are many reasons why you may want to study, firstly if you are interested in learning about about what makes a business successful, important sectors of a business (like Marketing, HRM etc.) starting your own business or just interested in learning about business in general. Additionally, I learnt a lot of key skills in this GCSE such as presenting skills and interview skills, as none of my other courses taught me this. I think it definitely helped give me a head start in my college course

I did AQA Business at GCSE. I wouldv'e enjoyed it more if I was in a class with friends, found this one of the easiest and straightforward subjects as you just memorise facts and there were only 2 or 3 long answer answer structures I had to learn and reproduce in the exam.

So much better if you choose it with friends (I know teachers say that it doesn't matter if you're friends are in a class w you or not, but at GCSE it does make a difference - it got quite lonely at times due to me being introverted).

Thank you for your advice; one of my friends is also taking Business GCSE. Hopefully, we are in the same class.
