A-level Business Studies

The A-level Business Studies examination is ideal for those students wishing to apply for undergraduate degrees in Business related subjects such as Business Studies, Marketing, Human Resource Management and Operational Management.

In order to obtain this A-Level, students must take four separate examinations. The titles of the four papers are:

  • Unit 1: Business Enterprise
  • Unit 2: Business Structures and Processes
  • Unit 3: Strategic Business Decisions
  • Unit 4: Business in a Global Context.

More specifically, Papers 1 and 2 make up half an A-Level, known as the AS Level and Papers 3 and 4 make up the other half, known as the A2 level. Thus, each paper makes up 25% of the student’s final A-Level grade.

The syllabus is typically taught within two academic years, but can be completed sooner on the premise that the student is willing to input more time and effort.

Please see the table below for a detailed analysis of the four papers.
