business operation, and will undertake practical business tasks.
In the core subjects, the emphasis is on the application of knowledge,

use of analytical skills and selection and organisation of information.
In the specialist subjects the emphasis is on: application and
evaluation of contrasting ideas, principles, theories and practices;
greater specialism in the field of study; and an increasing independence
in systematic enquiry and analysis.

value of the Edexcel qualifications.
