A Level Economics looks at a primary goal in all our lives. How to get resources (or money!) and how to use them (or spend it!). It examines this question from the point of view of individuals, who get money mostly from working or from benefits. Furthermore, it looks from the view of society where the government taxes us and spends the money on our behalf.
Where does an A Level Economics course lead?
A high proportion of A Level students decide to continue their study of the subject at a higher level. This is because degree courses in Economics and related disciplines are increasingly popular at a variety of Higher Education institutions. Related disciplines include Money, Banking and Finance, Business Studies, Sociology, Management Studies, Economic History, Politics. Economics also combines very well with Languages. Finally, economics is a key component in the professional examinations for Accountancy, Law, Banking and Insurance.
