Its easy to pick up business in 4th year but you need to be ready to work hard to get a good result.I really enjoy business but it requires work like all lc subject. I would recommend doing business anyway for the leaving cert.

Business is quite a short course, with plenty of choice in the exam and a lot of the material is common sense anyway. You don’t need junior cert business at all because you go over the same basics, and most of the course is very different anyway so you’ll be on the same page as everyone else.

no way too much rote learning and the marking scheme is so clapped

I didn’t do business for JC and have had no problem with LC business. It does require a huge amount of rote learning but if you’re good at that, it’s a pretty easy subject.

i didnt do business for jc and now i do business and economics and in in 5th year.Best decision i ever made.I naturally find curriculum some what interesting over like geography for example,its a subject thats quite easy to pass but getting a h1/h2 is hard work.My advice would be to go with your gut and dont just do the subjects your friends are doing,and the business course is the same year after year so exam questions are so important for that subject,but all and all id say go for it

It's an easy subject. You need to work on it just the same as every other subject, but no more than others. Everyone starts from scratch with business. Having business for the jc doesn't benefit you at all, as they aren't in anyway similar. Hope this helps

Its so so boring, so id say no

You should do it. It is a straightforward subject all you need to learn is the key points of what to write about for a question and then use your logic to explain the point in your own words. It is a great subject and you can achieve a very high grade in it.

There is alot of theory in business. Theres no practical so if your prepared to study just theory theory theory then i say do it. Its not difficult to understand though so it is possible to succeed it. You need to use your key words in your long questions or else you will lose marks. So the marking scheme is pretty tough but the questions are pretty straight forward. In conclusion i think you should do it if you like theory.

do business,im serious,i was just like you,i never did it for JC,but you learn everything from the basics at 5th year.yeah there r key words to learn but those r words youd be using a lot .Its a lot more simple in comparison to latin or economics or any science subject.

If you have a keen interest in busniess or if your parents own a business you will naturally understand things more. If you have the ability to stay focused during class you'll love business!! Don't let the learning put you off, its a lovely subject!!

its so interesting and easy to pick up if you didnt do it for junior cert. alot of it is common sense but if your hoping for a high grade (h1/h2) you will have to put alot of time into.

I am debating over whether to do business or not for the Leaving Cert too! I got a Distinction in it at Junior Cert but always found it quite a boring subject and not very enjoyable. I want to study medicine though and am looking for high points. Is it easier to get a H1 in complared to Home Ec, which is my second choice.
