    Last year I took OCR AS Economics and I got an A. I enjoyed it. This year my Sixth Form isn't offering it as an A2. I do still want to do it, however. As solutions, I've thought of self-studying or perhaps hiring a private tutor – although I think they're expensive. I'd appreciate some thoughts or advice on this.

    definitely dont get a private tutor as those are not worth it in a subject of economics
    Definitely take it if you got an a as that shows you enjoy it
    self studying economics isn't too hard as its just reading and understanding the syllabus

    Do you have the experience of self-studying Economics? Or is it just a hunch of yours that it "isn't too hard"?

    I self-taught AS Further Mathematics last year because it didn't fit in my timetable. That was a success (I got an A), but maths is clearly different to an essay/writing based subject such as Economics.

    Does anyone actually have any experience in self-studying A2 Economics, or similar?
