    Is it really a good idea to apply for a course if you don't even know why you want to do it?

    Have a look at the specification for A level economics on an examiner web site. It will explain what is covered in the course and should give some hints as to why it's a relevant course of study and whether or not it truly interests you.

    E.g. http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...c-August14.pdf

    A Google search "why study economics" would link you to lots of articles/pages that should give you good ideas.

    Be careful to write your statement in your own words, don't be tempted to cut and paste as it will be obvious you've simply plagiarised other sources.
