A Level Economics

A Level Economics is often viewed as a more difficult A Level. Whether this is true or not is a matter of debate. But, an Economics A level will certainly be highly valued at any University. Note, if you do take Economics, some universities will prefer you NOT to do Business Studies as well.

I often get asked which is the ‘easiest’ exam board – AQA, OCR or Edexcel. I never know what to answer, except that I think they are pretty much the same. Even if the questions appear more difficult on one board, the important thing is what % of students are given As or Bs. Thus if necessary, the grade boundaries would be reduced to say 55% for an A.

    Hi, I am 15 at the moment at currently doing my GCSE’s. I am considering taking a-level economics along with maths, biology and chemistry. I am yet undecided as to what career i would like to pursue and think that the mentioned choice of subjects would keep my options open.

    Could you tell me the ratio between coursework and exam for Edexcel board please? I cannot seem to find this information.

    Have you seen question 16 on AQA’s objective test (multiple choice) paper from last January? – link below. I can’t see the logic in the correct answer being B, as per the mark scheme. Any idea?
