Hello fellow students,
I've been thinking about choosing Business Studies or Economics as a GCSE option. I've heard that at GCSE, both subjects have an overlapping and very similar curriculum, and was wondering if you could please give me some advice. I know there's like seventeen thousand threads about this already, but I'm interested in what the best option would be in my scenario - I'm interested mostly in the starting and growing a business aspect, managing bigger businesses, but I'm also interetested in the stock market. I'm not really interested in the ethics part of Business Studies, which I've heard people say is quite prominent. As of now, I'm only really interested in taking this at GCSE (though I may decide later to study further), though I have heard that Business Studies isn't very respected by sixth forms, colleges, and universities - I've also heard that Economics has most of the content from Business Studies and more. I'm doing well in maths, so the mathmatical side of Economics wouldn't be an issue.
Any advice is truly appreciated,
