A Level

Economics also introduces you to business behaviour and labour markets. You will consider the size and growth of firms, their objectives and the different types of market structure. 

Demand and supply analysis will be applied to wage determination.

Globalisation, international trade, the balance of payments and exchange rates will all be studied, before examining public finance, macroeconomic policies and the financial sector.

Economics is a fascinating subject to study because it is so applicable to everyday life.

Why has the UK economy taken so long to recover from the financial crisis?  Will the government be able to repay its mountain of debt?

There are very few subjects that you can study during the day and see the relevance of what you’ve learned on the news at night.
