|BTEC National Diploma in Business Studies|
|6th Form - 6th Form Curriculum|
We try to give students a chance at Advanced level courses however this needs to be tempered by realism. Accepting students onto a course with little chance of success is not appropriate. We reserve the right to make the final decision to offer a place to anyone for any course.
The BTEC National Diploma in Business Studies is a two year course that investigates the internal departments of businesses, as well as external factors that can lead to business success or failure.
The BTEC National Diploma is equivalent to two A' Levels and it is assessed both internally and externally through coursework. There are no external exams to sit, so if coursework brings out the best of your skills and abilities, then this may be very suitable for you. Course work can include written assignment work, team working activities, presentations, financial calculations on spread sheets, and website design. It is very varied.
The department staff will assess all of your work and you will be given a final grade, that will be equivalent to A' Levels and which have UCAS points attached (see below). The Grades range from Distinction*Distinction* (equivalent to A*A* at A' Level) to Double Pass (equivalent to CC). A number of topics are studied that include:
Entrance requirements and skills needed
Students should have the equivalent of 5 GCSEs at grade C and above, preferably including maths and English, although, it is not necessary to have previously studied Business Studies.

Please note that this course structure is subject to change beginning 2016
