Should I study GCE A-Level Economics

GCE A-level Economics, both the AS and the AL, focuses heavily on the comprehension and application of Economics concepts in real life situations. If you would like to apply to Economics or business related disciplines at university, it is encouraged that you take the AL Economics course. If you wish to apply for law at university, but have a number of Science centred GCE A-levels, you would be wise to incorporate it into your final subject combination. This is because the GCE A-level in Economics is highly essay and writing based in approach across all examination boards (including the Edexcel, AQA, OCR and Cambridge Pre-U) and would therefore demonstrate competency and fluency in this regard.

How to get A/A* in GCE A-Level Economics

Most students find it challenging to write good essays and provide “to the point” data response answers. In working towards an A/A*, we begin the course by introducing, reading and reviewing Economics related news, before practicing Economics style essay writing. Feedback on essays is also important. When this is known, tutors and students can identify solid areas to improve on within an essay.

At CANA, our tutors work with you on scoping and structuring Economics essays to give them a head start in essay writing. Also, we use contemporaneous news articles to foster your understanding on key Economics concepts in the data response questions. This effectively helps you practice and acquire exam techniques for top grades in tests, mocks and the exam.
