The Student Room Group

A-level Business Study Group 2022-2023

Welcome to the A-level Business Study Group! :woo:

This is where you can chat to others students taking your subject as you prepare for your A-level exams this summer

What can I do in these groups?

Almost anything! If you need help with a certain topic, want to rant about something you are struggling with or just want to support other students who are trying to prepare, this is the place for you. We want these to be a useful place for everyone no matter what you're looking for! :smile:

What can't I do in these groups?

Asking or offering copyright papers is against our site rules, and so is taking conversation off-site to do these things. Any posts doing this will be removed. That's the only rule :naughty:

Ice Breaker questions if you want to use them!

> What exam board are you on? (Vote in the poll as well!)

> What bits of the course are you feeling confident with?

> What areas are you struggling with a little?

> Have you found any resources online that have helped you prepare?

Specifications:

Exam: AQA - Business Studies 7132


Exam: Edexcel - Business (9BS0)


Exam: OCR- Business H431


Exam: WJEC - Business


Good luck with the next few months. Remember, ask for help, support where you can and together we can do this! :yes:

It is a popular A-level! These groups start off slow but tend to build up as we go through the year. Welcome :smile:

Hey, can you include International A levels (IAL) in these kind of threads? Our specifications are very similar to A levels

Of course I can, would you like separate study groups or want to be added on to the existing ones?

It would be much better if you add it to the existing ones since IAL is pretty much the same thing as A levels. I have seen a lot of IAL (and IGCSE) students here who don't get enough help so that's why I was asking.

Yeah I know. I wanted full business subjects. But I regret not taking maths.

Why are you talking 3 languages tho? By your subject choices, I'm assuming you live in the UK?

No, I don't live in the UK. I'm taking Spanish because I'm native (speak it with my grandmother), German because I went to German school for 13 years and French because it is fairly simple already speaking Spanish.

Wow:eek:. You speak so many languages. So Spanish and German should very easy for you. What do you plan on studying in university? I mean if you are planning to go to uni that is.

oh sorry, I never got to answer your question. I’m planning on studying International Relations, but I’m also open to anything else. I’m starting a new AS in September. Either Law, politics, economics… What do you think of Economics? Is it similar to Business?

Economics is interesting. You will only find a few topics that are in both business and economics like price elasticity of demand, income elasticity of demand, supply, demand, market equilibrium etc. Another similarity is that there are essay questions in both subjects and you have to write a lot too. Right now, my fav subject is economics
