You will be internally assessed through the submission of assignments, role-plays and in-class assessments which accounts for approximately 80% of your grade. However from 2016, approximately 20% of your work will be externally assessed through an examination. The details of this are still to be confirmed by Edexcel.

|Course:||EXTENDED DIPLOMA IN BUSINESS|
I came to The Henley College from Furze Platt School in Maidenhead. I chose this course because I was interested in how businesses organise themselves, market their products and how they conduct market research. I am really enjoying the marketing side of business and understanding more about the retail industry. The teachers I have are really supportive and are always available to help.
I have enjoyed learning about business so much that I would like to study it at university once I have finished my two year course.
