To optimise outcomes in this A Level business studies course online, it is recommended that for every hour of instruction, students dedicate an additional hour for independent study, such as revising notes and engaging in supplementary research.
Assessments serve as benchmarks for continuous development. Level 5 internal assessments are scheduled in June, while Level 6 internal mock assessments are conducted in November and March. Comprehensive reports, which include grades for attainment and effort, are issued at the end of the Autumn and Summer terms for Level 5 and following mock assessments for Level 6. These reports also feature invaluable comments from Success Coaches and the Head Teacher, contributing to a well-rounded evaluation of student performance.
Parents have the opportunity to keep abreast of their child’s academic journey through a dedicated family Teams account. This facilitates seamless communication with teachers and offers the added advantage of more granular tracking of student progress than an annual parent consultation evening can provide.
