Economics in the Sixth Form
AS and A2 Level Economics
Students do not need to have studied Business and Economics at GCSE in order to take an AS or A Level course in this subject. It is more important that you should have an interest in current affairs and that you are able to communicate your ideas effectively. However, you should have gained at least 5 A*-C grades in your GCSEs including a C at both Maths and English
This course appeals to those students who want to find out more about the wider economic and social environment, have a keen interest in current affairs, want to be able to understand and evaluate the decisions of politicians and leaders, want to develop skills, qualities and attitudes which will equip them for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of adult and working life.
