Please note: Economics is a challenging A-level that requires lots of research and analytical skills. You are strongly advised to investigate the demands of this subject before choosing it as one of your subject options.
To be successful you must be confident in your numerical skills and demonstrate a strong academic ability.
You will need to have averaged grade B in the majority of your GCSEs and have at least a grade 6 in Mathematics.
You will be assessed through examinations consisting of unseen data questions, multiple choice questions and structured essays.
You will have access to a wide range of higher education opportunities and careers. These include Politics, Law, Banking, Insurance, Business, Accountancy, Journalism, the Civil Service and Public Administration.
We discourage students from combining Business and Economics (because of their overlap), except as part of a five AS-level programme.
