Units 1 and 3 are externally assessed. For each of these units you will sit a 60-minute examination.
Units 2 and 4 are based on coursework completed within the lessons and these are assessed internally.

In school talks and advice are also given by the owner of the business and she also evaluates students work and gives feedback which is useful for the controlled assessment.
