Are you studying Business A Level at Alton Campus in September? If so, you’re in the right place!
One of the ways to maximise your grade in Business is to know lots of businesses to use as examples. So try downloading the free BBC News app and when you have a spare moment, have a read of some business stories.
Did you know? Jim Ratcliffe is Britain’s richest person and is worth around £20bn – his wealth comes from Ineos, a chemicals-based business. He grew up on a council estate in Manchester.
This is the textbook we use extensively on the course. The cost is around £40 (some used ones are available if you are quick!) but it covers the two years. Not a substitute but also useful is a revision guide (around £15). Make sure it’s the AQA version – ISBN numbers below.
If you’d like to do some more activities, then have a go at this Aldi Case Study which has been specially written for Year 11s moving into Y12 by the Time2 Resources website.
