Oxford Home Schooling’s Economics A level course provides home learners with the opportunity to study one of the most prestigious and important of A level subjects. Whether you are seeking to gain entry to the top universities or prepare yourself for a life in business, A level Economics is a good place to start.
Although it is beneficial to have studied (I)GCSE Economics, it is by no means essential. This is an A level which can be tackled without prior knowledge of the subject as it proceeds from first principles.
The Economics A level course is split into two major components – AS and A2. The AS level also forms a separate qualification in its own right.
Each lesson begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study.
Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self-assessment questions.
There are thirteen tutor-marked assignments (known as TMAs).
The home schooling course covers the syllabus through the following four modules which reflect syllabuses examination structure:

The full A level qualification comprises both AS and A2 components and most candidates will also study the A2 syllabus 2141. Students may enrol for the AS level or for the whole A level. Oxford Home Schooling has selected this syllabus as the most suited to the needs of home educators.
Assessment is by four written papers of varied weighting. There is no coursework.
