Economics A Level at Bacon's College
Economics is really about issues that confront us all. As such, students are expected to keep abreast of contemporary issues through regular wider reading and engagement with financial literature.
Economics aims to develop an understanding of economic concepts and theories and help students to appreciate their value and limitations in explaining current economic issues. Applicants will also be expected to apply economic concepts and theories in a range of contexts, appreciating their strengths and weaknesses in explaining current issues that confront the world we live in.
A-Level Economics focuses on the performance of the UK economy and other major economies and will teach students to analyse, explain and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the UK economy and the role of the government within it.
ECON1: Markets and Market Failure
ECON2: The National Economy
ECON3: Business Economics and the Distribution of Income
ECON4: National and International Economics
Students are expected to have at least 5 A*-C grades at GCSE, including at least a ‘B’ grade in GCSE Mathematics and a ‘B’ grade in English Language or Literature.
Economics is highly respected as an A-level by universities for all sorts of courses.
