In A level Economics you’ll look at the fundamental issues that shape the modern world, such as economic growth, employment, prices, globalisation, poverty and inequality. Economists are often in healthy debate with each other over these issues. It is this controversy which makes Economics lively and interesting and which allows you the opportunity to make your own judgements and form your own opinions.
Through the use of simple mathematical models, we seek analyse the impact of decisions made by individuals, business organisations and governments, in order to consider how best to deploy the economy’s scarce resources.
There is no requirement to have studied GCSE Economics in order to study A level Economics; all topics will be introduced at A level from the ground up.
