Economics at Stantonbury Campus

Course description

Economics is the study of why individuals and groups make decisions about how to use scarce resources. You might like to read "Freakonomics" by Steven Levitt to get an idea of what economists do. Over the course of two years students will study the following: Macroeconomic problems (e.g. unemployment) and how the government attempts to solve them, how markets work and why they fail, transport economics and international Economics to include study of Europe and the Developing World. Economics is an excellent subject to study if you want to understand the world we live in. It is regarded as being a challenging A level subject and is highly regarded by universities. At the end of the first year, students will sit two oneā€hour examinations covering all of the AS topics. In the second year students sit two modular examinations covering A2 topics. You have the opportunity to take part in Young Enterprise and we have industry links for guest speakers.

Assessment

Five level two qualifications (e.g. A* - C at GCSE) . At least four of these grades will be from GCSE. It is our experience that very good results in GCSE English and Maths are advantageous to students taking Economics
