“Business has been my favourite subject since I first chose it in Year 9. Since then I have wanted to learn more, which is why I am so pleased that I chose it as an A Level. What I’ve enjoyed most over the first year is learning how what I’m taught is actually reflected in the real world, and how it can affect my local environment. If I had the chance to do anything differently, I would have interacted more at the beginning of the year – it would have allowed me to take in different points of view on topics, allowing me to get a better perspective. Overall, however, I have loved the subject and I am very happy to be studying it next year.”
