The Double Award is worth 2 A Levels and new for 2014 we are offering the Single Award which is worth 1 A Level.
A Level Applied Business is different from A Level Business Studies in a number of ways. Firstly, as the "Applied" title suggests we try to give you a greater involvement with businesses; so more trips to businesses, more research of real businesses, a one week work placement in the first year and a greater development of the personal skills you will need to do well in a business.
Secondly, the Applied course is 2/3rds coursework and 1/3rd exam. This means your result is very much in your hands and if you work hard on your coursework units, you can enter the exam with an already fantastic grade behind you. Applied Business is exactly the same as any other A Level and is worth the same UCAS points for University.
