Economics at Hampton High

Course description


Exam Board - Edexcel

Course Duration - 2-Years

Should we be spending money on hospitals or the armed forces?  How should we reduce the level of UK debt?  Should the wealthy be paying higher taxes?  Why do footballers earn up to £200,000 per week and qualified nurses only £25,000 per year?  Should we adopt minimum pricing on alcohol?  How can we reduce traffic congestion?  How will the continued growth of China and India affect UK citizens?  Economics touches every aspect of people's daily lives.  It is continually discussed in the newspapers and on television.  If these type of questions intrigue you then A level Economics awaits.

Future opportunities


Since A level Economics requires students to analyse complex data, develop problem solving skills and construct arguments, it is highly regarded by universities.  Many students progress on to degree courses in Economics, Business, Management Science or Politics, with approximately half of Economics graduates going on to careers in Accountancy, Banking and Finance.  However, it also equips students well for a career in Marketing, Law, Journalism or Management.
