One of the best things to help you succeed on this course is keep in touch with the news. We’d advise having news alerts on devices from reputable sources.
Economics is a highly versatile subject that could provide many different career pathways. Many students decide to study the subject at university, and from there go on to work as economists in various fields such as with the Bank of England, the CBI, accountancy firms, in economic ‘think-tanks’, for example, the Institute of Fiscal Studies, in charitable organisations, in multinational corporations, or in government departments.
Economics A-Level students are also very well-prepared for the workplace, with many taking up apprenticeship schemes, such as in accountancy or project management in firms such as BAE Systems and Rolls Royce.
At least five 5s at GCSE, including at least a 6 in Maths and English Language.
