Economics A Level at Finchley Catholic High School

Course description

Economics is the study of how society goes about the business of securing its material well being. All communities face a common problem. The resources available are limited and yet we have an infinite range of wants and needs. The way in which we address this fundamental dilemma throws up all sorts of intriguing issues and problems – from the role of government to the impact of globalisation, and this course examines those questions.
This course will appeal to students with a keen interest in current affairs, who like analysing and debating complex problems.


Future opportunities

Many students who study Economics at A Level choose to carry it on to degree level. It is a subject particularly well suited to those who want to pursue a career in banking, finance or commerce, but the interests and skills required will also appeal to those with an interest in journalism, politics and the law. A clear prose style and a facility for handling and presenting statistical data is highly desirable.
