IGCSE Business Studies
Our IGCSE Business Studies programme is designed to enable learners to study business concepts and techniques, while also enhancing related skills such as numeracy and enquiry.
This helps provide a foundation for further study at IB and Cambridge International A Level and also an ideal preparation for the world of work.
1:1 and Group Classes
We teach a hybrid model of solo and regular timetabled group classes (currently online). We assess the individual needs of every student and, partnering with parents, mutually decide on an appropriate course of study for the student. Our general recommendation is that students start their learning in a group class and once core theory has been understood, group sessions can be complemented with solo classes to consolidate learning and address any specific concerns.
We also offer paper marking services for this course. Having your practice papers marked will help give you a clear idea of where and how to improve. Please click here to know more.
