Economics (AS/A2 Level)

The study of Economics has never been more relevant. Economics at A level encourages students to: appreciate the contribution of economics to the understanding of the wider economic and social environment; develop an understanding of a range of concepts and an ability to use these concepts in a variety of different contexts; use an enquiring, critical and thoughtful approach to the study of economics and develop the ability to think as an economist. This in turn allows the development of skills, qualities and attitudes that will equip them for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of adult and working life.
