What type of student succeeds at Economics A Level?
Economics is a demanding subject at A Level and students have to be comfortable with numeracy. There is a fair amount of conceptual thinking, with the main skill being the ability to analyse economic data, interpret graphs and tables, identify trends and explain these using economic theory, often through diagrams therefore students have to have an eagerness to learn as well as work independently.
