Latest Examiners' Report

The Eduqas A Level Economics course not only helps learners develop their knowledge of economics, but also builds an understanding of the wider economic and social environment.

The A Level Economics specification is designed to develop a range of analytical and
quantitative skills that will equip them for adult and working life.
The Economics A Level is assessed across three examination papers, with subject content grouped into three broad areas of study:

  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Trade and development

We provide a range of digital A Level Economics resources for both learners and educators, including AS and A Level Economics past papers, exam walk throughs and teaching resources.

To find out more about the course, including A Level Economics grade boundaries,
