I have an A2 exam for Business tomorow and there are usually two questions where you name a major UK business and a product or service they offer and then there's a couple question on them.

Not many Major UK businesses coem to mind however and I wondering if anyone had any ideas of some.

Thanks.

Here are some Major British businesses:
- Vodaphone
- Virgin
- Marks & Spencers
- B&Q
- Bodyshop
- Cadburys
- Boots

When I did my A-Levels 3/4 years ago, I did Business case studies on Vodaphone, Virgin, Cadburys, Boots and Bodyshop. The companies above are huge UK Businesses but I think Vodaphone and Cadburys are the biggest.

Thanks for the replies.

I know there are alot of big UK businesses but it is usually easier to write about really huge ones such as the ones Harmonius suggested.

Thanks for all the replies.

Did you guys know that Superdrug is owned by Hong Kong-based Conglomerate, Hutchinson Whampoa? No - thought not. I win in Business Studies although it's not my major.

Not entirely sure to be honest, I know he's worked on alot of the big ships, and I believe his work is confined to working in really tight spaces, other than that I don't really know I'm afraid.
