A-level Economics, particularly the Edexcel Board, will test the logical processing skills of the students. They will learn to think clearly and quickly. They will sharpen their mathematical skills and apply them to real life situations. This will enable the student to truly value their academic studies. There is also ample time to debate current issues and we will develop in our students, the ability to see current arguments from a multitude of viewpoints.

What Skills Do You Neeed?

GCSE Maths and English, both at grade 4 or above, will be necessary.

A keen interest in the Economy is also a great advantage, including an awareness of current affairs. Economics is a demanding A-level but it is also rewarding and is well respected by the top UK universities.

Where Does it Lead?

Economics is what we call an ‘Open Option Subject’. All industries need analytical minds and commercial skills. Careers in music, drama, television and sports are open to you as an individual with a good, sound grasp of commerce. This is alongside other rewarding careers in banking, finance, entrepreneurship, business, management, law, politics, industry, travel and education. As a numerate subject, the skills are highly transferable and open doors to universities and employment alike.
