Economics: A Level

This course is taught at Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth 1 college as part of our course partnership.


Economics is about how, as individuals and groups, we get the things we want to buy and the services we need and want. But economics isn’t just about money and it isn’t just about the decisions made by governments or big business. It’s about making choices – choices between different uses of limited resources – and most of the resources we need to use in our lives are limited in some way or another.
