Economics is one of the top ten choices at university and in the top four for starting salaries after graduation. Students who complete Economics in the main go onto university. Twenty percent who finished college this year chose an Economics course or a related subject.
Each year there are students who go to Oxford or Cambridge to study PPE, Economics and Management or Maths and Economics. Economics supports a wide range of courses including Law, International Relations, Finance and Politics.
This A Level course is only offered as a two year programme.
