    After my class was dropped I was left with 3 a levels to study. Now I need to self study an AS level in Economics for my fourth A-Level. I would really appreciate if people could tell me how to go about doing so. Links,notes, pdf textbooks, videos e.t.c would be great. Thanks

    Hi there,

    First off... well done for having the courage to decide on self-studying. I too self studied economics with AQA.

    Below I have linked a website built specifically for the AQA economics syllabus:

    Good Luck!

    I self studied all of my AS subjects last year. What I realised that you need to be determined to teach yourself and revise. You also need to be clear of any distractions. I know in my heart that i couldv'e gotten better AS level results if I spent more time studying rather than playing video games though im still grateful I have grades that could get me into university.

    I used revision guides mostly because they broke down everything to be easily understood. They also only have the relvant details rather than the woffle in textbooks.
    I also used this thing called Quizlet where you can make online flashcards. They could be helpful for your formulas in economics (if there are any, i have no idea ).

    You can take your economics exams as a private candidate at an exam centre but you will have to pay for your exams by February 2016. There will probably be an admin fee from the exam centre on top of the fee for the exam from the exam board.

    Good luck

    I used 'my revision notes' ones for 3 of my subjects and one written by chief examiners for sociology.

    Look out for the revision guides written by examiners because they tend to show you what not to write and how to achieve the top grades with some examples.
