About this course

A-Level Business Catch Up 2021 provides a carefully-structured online study programme to support students whose studies have been disrupted during 2020 as a consequence of COVID-19.

The course is intended to provide students entering the final year (Year 13) of study with a strong grasp of the most important A-Level Business concepts from Year 12.

The course is organised into a series of "Weeks" each of which focuses on a core topic area from year 12 that is likely to underpin student success in summer 2021.

Each Week comprises a series of sequenced, guided videos designed and recorded by A-Level Business experts, supported by interactive revision activities and resource downloads.

Whilst the course is designed to be completed in sequence (week-by-week), it is also ideal as a support resource for "flipped" or "blended" learning during the 2020/21 academic year, particular as it covers core topics which need to be revisited and reinforced as the summer 2021 exams get closer.

Who it's for

All students preparing to sit A-Level Business exams in summer 2021.
