    As the new course to replace Business BTEC is the Tech Award called Enterprise, I am looking to change courses but know very little about any other KS4 Business course.
    Any guidance or advice from anyone - past papers, cost, useful resources from exam board etc

    The GCSE 9-1 specs start in September for the first time so there are only specimen papers available. Edexcel spec is always very good and very similar to the old 2009 spec, except the content is more up to date. AQA is very much similar to Edexcel, one paper is for smaller businesses and the other for growing businesses. OCR's exam paper has more multiple choice and the specification and papers are divided into business functions (i.e. finance, operations...). None of the new specs have a controlled assessment, so that's one less thing to worry about. Here are some useful links, and when you make your mind up head over to Amazon for one of my revision powerpoints :)
