Description

Business Studies

Edexcel IGCSE

A distance learning course is the ideal way to gain a Business Studies IGCSE. Whether you're looking to go on to further education, improve your job prospects or expand your knowledge, distance learning IGCSE Business Studies is a flexible and convenient course, which allows you to comprehensively prepare for the exam through home study. What's more, because the distance learning IGCSE Business Studies course is a fully comprehensive course, no prior knowledge is required.

This course concerns the business aspects of organisations within their economic, political and social contexts. Business Studies involves the investigation of how business adds value by organizing the production of goods and services. The performance of business is studied from a range of perspectives. Using case studies, your course ensures that you have knowledge, understanding and experience of the real world of business organisations. The use of case study materials also requires that you use a variety of methods to analyse and evaluate this evidence and thus make reasoned judgements in the context of real business scenarios. 

FORMAT OF COURSE (Modules Overview)

The course is designed to match the Exexcel 4BS0 specification and is divided into five modules, as follows:

Module One: Business activity and the changing environment

Module Two: Human resources

Module Three: Accounting and finance

Module Four: Production

Module Five: Marketing

HOME STUDY SUPPORT 

Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self-assessment questions, and there is guidance for the preparation of coursework.

You will be provided with comprehensive materials designed to provide you with everything required to complete your course of study. You will have your own personal tutor helping you with your course work and with any questions you may have. Plus you can contact a Student Advisors by email or phone for all the practical advice you may need – so we really are with you 100%.

Your tutor will give you various resource sites to visit and there is extra material in the student support portal.

COURSE ASSESSMENT

At the end of each lesson you will find a self–assessment test or a tutor marked assignment. Self-Assessment Tests (SATs), as the name suggests, are designed to be marked by students themselves. These tests cover some or all of the topics of that particular lesson. Suggested answers to these tests are to be found at the back of the course.

Tutor-marked Assignments (TMAs) are usually to be found at the end of each of the modules. These are usually more extensive than the SATs and may require skills or knowledge derived from earlier lessons. Again, there are sets of suggested answers. These are supplied at the back of the course but should normally be retained by the tutor before the student starts work on the course. Make sure that this has happened! TMAs should be attempted under examination conditions. Besides the formal tests, there are also a number of Activities which are located within each of the lessons. These Activities are arranged so that there may be an appropriate space for you to write in your answer. Activities may involve writing something down, performing some task, or just thinking about a problem.

In some cases there are answers to the activities. These may be found at the end of the lesson or immediately after the activity itself.
