Edexcel econ and business - any thoughts?

Discussion in 'Business studies' started by bargie, Jan 25, 2012.

  1. Hi,

    We currently offer OCR A level business studies but are thinking we need to change.
    As our uptake at KS4 has grown lots of students who come onto the A level find the AS year very boring as it's mostly a repeat of the content they learnt at GCSE so we end up with some bored and disillusioned students and so some drop it after AS and miss out on all the new A2 content.
    Anyway the only option that really offers something 'extra' and different is the combined economics and business studies. From a bit of research only 2000 or so students sat it last year so quite a minority one but just wondered if anyone does do it and their thoughts on it.
    How do univeristies and employers see this compared to the typical Business Studies?

    Any general thoughts much appreciated
