About the subject

Economics touches every area of our lives: from the pricing of our favourite shampoo; to the cost of housing; to the availability of jobs that will allow us to afford either of them.  In studying Economics A Level students learn about all levels of Economics, from the individual consumer to the actions of national governments and multinational corporations.  Most importantly, students will develop an enquiring, critical and thoughtful approach; skills essential for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of adult and working life.  A knowledge of relevant current issues is essential, and will improve the student's skills as economists and their understanding of the world in which they live.

Year 12 Overview

(new Spec)

Students will be assessed through two examination papers. The first paper will examine mainly the microeconomic topics that are outlined in Section 3.1 of the specification but economic principles included in Section 3.2 of the specification may also enrich a student’s response to some questions. Similarly, the second paper will examine mainly the macroeconomic topics that are outlined in Section 3.2 of the specification but may draw on economic principles from Section 3.1.

Year 13 Overview

(old Spec)

Students will be assessed through three examination papers. The first paper will examine mainly the topics that are outlined in Section 4.1 of the specification but economic principles included in Section 4.2 of the specification may also enrich a student’s response to some questions. Similarly, the second paper will examine mainly the topics that are outlined in Section 4.2 of the specification but may draw on economic principles from Section 4.1. The third paper will include topics from both sections of the specification and students, particularly when answering questions linked to the case study, will be expected to recognise when it is appropriate to use microeconomic and/or macroeconomic models.
