AS Economics

Business Studies may be a familiar subject to some of you; you may have studied Business Studies at GCSE level. This course is similar in some ways to GCSE; it is at the same level, with some similar content. The main differences between a BTEC 1st course and a GCSE course are firstly in the assessment. On a BTEC course there is more internal (or teacher) assessed work and secondly it is a vocational course, which means you will gain valuable skills and experiences to better prepare you for employment.
