International Advanced Levels from 2013 | Business Studies
Edexcel International Advanced Level Business Studies

The Edexcel International AS/Advanced Level Business Studies syllabus builds on the knowledge and skills developed from Edexcel International GCSE Business Studies and other GCSE programmes of study, encouraging creative thinking and problem-solving. A GCSE qualification in Business Studies is not a prerequisite for study of the subject at Advanced Level.

Edexcel International Advanced Level qualifications are not available to centres in the UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Additionally, British Armed Forces schools based overseas are not able to make entries for these qualifications.
