Course Overview

AQA Qualification Code: 7136

Looking at the present pandemic situation we are constantly bombarded with messages about economics, so perhaps it is worth understanding a bit more about the A-level Economics subject. Our A-level economics online course is a fairly new subject available to study but is becoming a very popular option. There are a lot of doors opened from studying A-Level Economics, with great university choices as well as career options.

During this A-level Economics online course, you will study how to explain and analyse economic issues and arguments, evaluate economic information, and organise, present and communicate ideas and judgements clearly. At the end of this stimulating Economics course, you will have a solid basis on which to build a career in banking, finance, or government.

The AQA A-level online course will give you an in-depth understanding of how Economics impacts on societies across the globe as well as an appreciation of how a market economy influences national and international policy.

The online course will also help prepare our A-level Economics students for a variety of career opportunities. If you want to develop an enquiring, critical and thoughtful ‘economist’s mind’ this is the course for you.

Our online course is delivered via our online learning platform as this provides learners with a dynamic and engaging experience.

The learning resources are in a range of different media including videos, quizzes, and interactive activities.

Thinking of Going to University?

A Levels are assessed primarily through examinations, and in some cases, coursework and/or practicals too, which are then combined to give a final grade. If you are planning to go on to higher education, this grade can then be translated into Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) points. You will be awarded up to 56 points per A Level which can then be added together to reach the total number of UCAS points required by your chosen university.
