Business-grade booster workshop for Year 11

Our GCSE business studies pupils recently attended an intensive grade booster workshop in Westfield, Stratford. Fast-paced revision strategies and essential techniques were shared on the big cinema screen. The workshop was designed and delivered by experienced teachers and examiners, all of whom have a deep understanding of what pupils need to focus on in order to succeed highly in their upcoming GCSE exams.

The session was delivered in four parts. They are:

  • Business Basics and Getting to Grips with Explain and Analyse Questions,
  • Nailing the 9 Mark Questions,
  • Maximising Performance in 12 Mark Questions,
  • Revision of Key topic areas and Numerical Concepts.

Pupils had the chance to tackle sample questions and make logical and fully justified recommendations in their answers. Recapping on the use of formulae and key quantitative skills were demonstrated. It was an intensive but hugely valuable workshop and we know that our pupils would have gained a lot from this event.
