Shortlist

Course Overview
During the two years of the AS and A level (A2) programme students will cover topics including an Introduction to Economic Principles and Economics in Action. These two courses make up 40% of the total A Level course. The course will also look at both micro and macro economics

Exploring Economic behaviour, and Evaluating Economic models constitutes 60 % of the course and comprises the two A2 topics. Delivery of the programme is varied and interesting, comprising of lectures, workshops, guest speakers, tutorials as well as trips and conferences designed specifically for AS and A level students.
Throughout the course, the students’ progress is assessed by their tutors in a variety of different ways including essays, case studies, reports, tests and exams. This allows students to check their progress as well as helping to identify and remedy any difficulties.

The AS and A level qualifications are achieved through successful completion of examinations for each unit.
5 GCSEs at grade C/4 or above including Maths or Maths Numeracy (Intermediate or Higher tier).
No previous experience necessary. However if Economics was taken at GCSE a C/4 or above is required.

Students are advised to take A level Maths if they wish to take Economics at university.

Should an A level applicant have or be predicted a grade D/3 in either GCSE Maths or English (and at least a grade C/4 in the other subject) then your application will be considered.

At Coleg Cambria we would encourage you to do the very best that you can in your exams. The better your grades the more options you will have, and may result in you gaining entry onto a higher level course.
Economics is a good subject to complement social science courses such as Politics and Government, or Science, Maths and Art subjects. It can lead, with Maths and Physics, into Engineering or, with languages. It can provide an excellent basis for those interested in working overseas. Those people interested in careers in finance and accounting will find Economics especially helpful. Many professional bodies, like the Institute of Chartered Accountants require an understanding of economics to qualify in the profession.
Some courses may require equipment and/or uniforms to be purchased. Please see attached equipment list for further information.
