Summer 2018 Business exams

1 February 2018

The summer 2018 exam series for GCE and GCSE Business students takes place over May and June.  All the exams bar one will be over before the start of the World Cup on 14 June.  Only GCE Business Paper 3 on 18 June falls within the tournament with the Brazil match the night before the Paper 3 exam a potential distraction.  England's first match against Tunisia on 18 June takes place a few hours after the Paper 3 exam, a nice way to relax after an exam!
