Economics A level at Falmouth School

Course description

This innovative GCE allows students to integrate the study of Economics with some of the fundamentals of Business Studies. In Year 12, the focus is on entrepreneurial skills and these are built upon and given a global perspective in Year 13. Though the first year of this course, students gain a sound insight into the world of Business through a study of how businesses and entrepreneurs develop new ideas and an appreciation of the fundamentals of business economics. In the second year of the course they will develop a greater understanding of macroeconomic policy and the world of international business. All units in this course are externally assessed through terminal examinations.

Future opportunities

The combination of both Economics and Business provides students with the fundamental understanding necessary to continue the study of either of these subjects at a higher level, or in combination with other A-levels to go on to study in a wide range of areas including law and politics. This course is also a perfect stepping stone into employment or apprenticeships at middle management levels.
