Economics A Level is structured into four themes and consists of three examined papers.
Students build knowledge and understanding of core economic models and concepts in Themes 1 and 2, and then build on this and apply their knowledge to more complex concepts and models in Themes 3 and 4.
Students will need to apply their knowledge and understanding to both familiar and unfamiliar contexts in the assessments and demonstrate an awareness of current economic events and policies.
Throughout Year 12, students will study Themes 1 and 2. In Year 13, along with Themes 3 and 4, a synoptic approach is taken whereby students link together what they have learnt across microeconomics and macroeconomics.
