What is the notion of ‘price’ in the economy – and how does it help us make decisions? Is there a link between climate change and economic activity? Economics is about decision-making in a world where there are many choices to be made. It brings meaning to the way that we make decisions about our lives. It is a subject that attempts to blend fact with theory in the search for better ways to manage our economy. It is a highly valued academic subject as well as being highly thought of by professional bodies.
To study Economics at Bilborough, you will need a minimum grade B/5 in both GCSE Maths and English Language as there is lots of data analysis within the course structure. Our students also have to be able to write extended essays on what they have analysed.
