    I assume BS - but GCSE? A Level? other!!!!!!!!!

     
  4. Sorry! Was so disgruntled I forgot to say!. GCSE Business Studies.
     
  5. Have a funny feeling it maybe Edexcel you are disgruntled with but here goes. For GCSE the exam is great - year 10 is multiple choice and reflects that it is knowledge based skills in year 1 of a 2 year course. Controlled assessment is ok but there are issues with conflicting advice.

    Ian Marcouse has written the text book for the course and it is good.

    Edexcel communities and Colin Leith's email are a good source of resources and ideas for teaching.

    We used to use AQA but changed when we moved to the new course. We didn't particularly like their new offering and were a bit fed up.
