Extra IGCSE Maths help - http://www.explainingmaths.com/igcse--gcse-maths.html


Commerce as a subject

Commerce is a study related to distribution of products from the producer (point of production) to the consumer (point of consumption).
Learners gain an introduction to the nature of commercial activities, how these activities are affected by changes in the commercial environment, and the impact they have on national and international consumers, producers, retailers and wholesalers.

The syllabus looks at the purpose and function of major commercial activities, examining language, concepts and decision-making procedures, and the importance of communication and documentation. Learners study the nature and importance of innovation and change, and develop complementary skills of enquiry, interpretation and communication.


Business Studies as a subject


Business Studies provides students with a unique insight into the world of work. Through its study, students discover how businesses operate and learn about their key elements and essential business functions.
The study of business is about how individuals and groups of people organise, plan, and act to create and develop goods and services to satisfy customers.
Business is influenced by and impacts on the cultural, ethical, environmental, political, and economic conditions of the day.
Students develop their understanding of business theory and practices in a range of relevant contexts, through case study as well as theoretical approaches to learning.
Business studies have natural links to the social sciences learning area. Contexts for business can also be drawn from other learning areas, such as technology, management, marketing, project management, business accounting, management consultancy and human resources.

 

Economics as a subject


Economics is the study of the production and consumption of goods and the transfer of wealth to produce and obtain those goods. Economics explains how people interact within markets to get what they want or accomplish certain goals. Since economics is a driving force of human interaction, studying it often reveals why people and governments behave in particular ways.

A study of economics can describe all aspects of a country’s economy, such as how a country uses its resources, how much time labourers devote to work and leisure, the outcome of investing in industries or financial products, the effect of taxes on a population, and why businesses succeed or fail.

The Cambridge IGCSE Level Economics syllabus develops an understanding of economic terminology and principles, and of basic economic theory. Learners find out about the economics of developed and developing nations and how these interrelate. They will also learn to handle simple data and undertake economic analysis, evaluate information and discriminate between facts and value judgements in economic issues.

 

Environmental Management as a subject

Environmental Management is an interesting course that brings together many different academic fields of study.

In general with this subject you will be looking at the physical aspects of the world around us.

This covers many of the topics that would be in a Geography syllabus.
There are also links to Business Studies, Economics, Physical Science and even Travel and Tourism

Environmentla Management is broken down into 4 main areas of study:

  • The Lithosphere ( Rocks and the make-up of soils)
  • The Hydrosphere ( Water, Oceans and the water cycle)
  • The Atmosphere
  • The Biosphere ( Life forms and their interactions with each other and the environment)

At the IGCSE level the approach is quite wide, with many areas covered to give a broad understanding of concepts.

Each learning area introduces the key components of the particular system, and then looks at the impacts of human activity.

As a whole, the course assesses the strengths and weaknesses of each system with a view to increasing the understanding of how fragile the balance of nature is. The long term goal is to promote the sustainable use of resources and the ecologically sound development of Society through the implementation of appropriate management strategies.

 

More information will be given through to students who start their education on these nights. Please note that only students who paid registration & fees will be allowed into the class.
