Subject Information

The CCEA GCSE Business Studies specification encourages students to investigate how businesses start up. They explore the resources, marketing and finance that businesses need and the challenges they face.

They also examine how businesses grow and the role of stakeholders: groups that have an interest in a business. They understand the role of human resources, the recruitment and selection process, and the value of employee training and motivation.

Important new topics include the role of social enterprise, e-business and m-business. Students discover how businesses can use electronic and mobile technology in different ways. They also learn to apply skills such as decision making, proposing business strategies or solutions, understanding other viewpoints and justifying decisions.

How is it assessed?

Assessment is through two written exams, each worth 40% of the final mark, and a controlled assessment unit worth 20%.

The specification has three units:

  • Unit 1: Starting a Business

  • Unit 2: Developing a Business

  • Unit 3: Planning a Business.
