To take into account

The A-level builds on the course content of the Economics GCSE, but it is not necessary to have this qualification before undertaking the A-level. However, in order to meet the demands of the course, it is recommended that candidates have literary and communication skills equivalent to C or higher at GCSE, though full tutor support is given throughout.

A Level in Economics (Full AS+A2)

AS Economics

Course Synopsis
The Course is divided into two modules, each of which is divided into four lessons. All of the lessons have references to the textbook and to carefully selected websites. At the end of each lesson there is a set of key words. After studying the lesson, you should be able to give the meaning of these words. Each second lesson has a tutor marked assessment which, when completed, should be sent to your tutor.

Economics has a large amount of new terminology. You will be required to recognise and understand economic terms when you meet them and also to apply them to real life situations. Some of the terminology is used in ordinary language but in a quite different way in economics. You will also need to remember diagrams that explain economics, it is important to label your axes correctly and to be able to explain the diagrams in your own language. You may find it helpful to put your definitions and diagrams on index cards or the clipped together revision cards you can buy in a stationery shop.

Each module of the course corresponds to the examination unit. The lessons have been arranged to follow the syllabus and to provide for ease of understanding and topic coverage so may be of different length and difficulty. Unit 1 has more theory and diagrams and you might wish to start on Unit 2 at the same time and work in parallel.

The Course is laid out as follows:-

Module 1 Lesson 1 The Economic Problem and the Production Possibility Frontier Lesson 2 Demand and Supply Analysis

Assignment A Lesson 3 Market Failure Lesson 4 Government Intervention and Government Failure

Assignment B Module 2 Lesson 1 Introducing Macroeconomics and Measuring the Economy Lesson 2 Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply

Assignment A Lesson 3 Economic Growth Lesson 4 Government Intervention and Constraints

Assignment B
