Economics AS/A2 at Onslow St Audrey`s School

Course description

For AS Level you will take 2 modules.
These will include work on the Market
System which studies supply and
demand together with how firms and consumers react in a Market.
Market Failure looks at where and why the Market System does
not come up with the best solutions due to problems such as
pollution, and the policies governments can use to reduce these
problems. In National and International Economy you will learn
about the economy as a whole. This includes looking at interest
rates, growth rates, inflation, unemployment and international trade.
Work at A2 will cover Global Economics and how less developed
countries can organise themselves to become developed and what
countries like the UK can do to help. Transport Economics will look
at the state of our railways, road tolling and pricing and the issue of
airport congestion.
Assessment is all by examinations, which will require you to both
analyse data and write medium length essays.
Careers in the City, Business, Civil Service and the Media are all
enhanced by Economics.
We normally advise against taking both Economics and Business
Studies AS levels due to the overlap between courses. . Assessment
