Economics - A Level at Katharine Lady Berkeley's School

Course description

Economics has become increasingly high profile in recent years. Fears of a Euro meltdown and of the Brexit vote and its implications are just two topics rarely out of the news recently, throwing a light on the importance of, and divisions within, this subject area.

Economists are often in healthy debate with each other over these issues as well as topics such as poverty and globalisation. It is this controversy which makes economics lively and interesting and which allows students the opportunity to make their own judgements and form their own opinions and should help develop skills, qualities and attitudes, which will equip them for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of adult and working life.

Entry requirements
