Economic decisions and activities impact on many different areas of society and on our own everyday lives – interest rate changes, personal taxation, unemployment and consumer behaviour, to name but a few. By studying economics, you will become more aware of how political and economic decisions affect you as an individual and as part of the global economy. Universities and employers regard economics as a numerate discipline. It has the reputation of being a demanding subject, and therefore a qualification in it is a valuable asset. A-Level Economics links subjects in the arts, science and mathematics areas.
