Course Overview

A-Level Economics will give you the opportunity to examine a range of topics such as economic performance, market failure, income distribution and understanding the UK and global economy. You will complete the AS Level in the first year and the A2 in the second to form a full A Level.

Studying Economics offers a unique insight into how the world works and will help students to understand many of the big questions facing people today such as:

- What are the economic consequences of leaving the European Union?
- How badly will the UK be affected by an extended period of low, global growth?
- How can industry tackle global warming?
- Is there a value to the market place in reducing VAT?
- How can problems of poverty and inequality be addressed?

This subject is therefore of particular interest to students who seek answers to a range of topical questions and also to those who aspire to careers in stimulating and rewarding sectors of the economy. Economics provides students with the skills to analyse issues to a high standard and provides an excellent foundation for higher education in such areas as Economics, Finance, Business, Management and Accountancy, Politics and Philosophy.

The course can be taken in the following ways:

- Within KC Sixth with another two, possibly three A-Levels, tutorial and optional EPQ and Core maths
- As an 'add on' to a Full Time Level 3 Study Programme at the College, for example alongside a BTEC Extended Diploma
- As a stand-alone part-time course
