A & AS Level (Sixth Form) Economics

Through the A and AS Level Economics syllabus, students learn how to explain and analyse economic issues and arguments, evaluate economic information, and organise, present and communicate ideas and judgements clearly.

The syllabus covers a range of basic economic ideas, including an introduction to the price system and government intervention, international trade and exchange rates, the measurement of employment and inflation, and the causes and consequences of inflation. Pupils also study the price system, the theory of the firm, market failure, macroeconomic theory and policy, and economic growth and development.

Career Prospects:

Economics is a component in many Commerce and Science degrees, and will prepare students for a number of careers in the business sector, as well as numerous other professions.
