Why AQA for Applied Business?

Our Level 3 vocational qualifications are a practical introduction to business, and support progression to further study or employment. They build on the strengths of our outgoing A-level Applied Business specification.

Developed together with teachers, schools, colleges and higher education institutions, they help learners to develop fundamental business and entrepreneurial knowledge and skills.

DfE 16 to 19 performance tables and UCAS tariff points

Our Applied General qualifications are included in the performance tables for technical and vocational qualifications aimed at students aged 16 to 19, as published by the Department for Education (DfE). They also attract UCAS tariff points
