About the course

Please note that this CPD course contains some resources/content from Success in Edexcel A-Level Business.

What we'll cover

  • We take a quick look at the Edexcel A-Level Business Specification and how the course is structured and assessed. We also outline the different types of questions within Edexcel A-Level Business and look at how to tackle the Paper 3 pre-release

  • Building on Session 1, we examine the different demands of each type of Edexcel A-Level Business question, with advice and guidance on how students can structure their answers to each question type to maximise their marks

  • A deep dive in to exam technique with techniques and strategies that teachers can use in the classroom to develop their students knowledge and understanding, application, analysis and evaluation. We also examine how students exam answers are marked and look at some sample answers

  • Here, we quickly examine the common areas of weakness, as well as the mistakes, misunderstandings and misconceptions that students make during the course

  • Here we explore some topic areas and concepts that students often find difficult, such as PED, YED, CPA and Investment Appraisal, with ideas on how to deliver these topics, as well as resources to help teachers feel more confident when teaching them
