I've never done Economics before, and I'm now a month into my Economics AS level (AQA). I'm struggling a bit; I never knew much about the subject but I thought I'd take it as it seemed interesting. I just can't seem to get my head around the concepts and terms and graphs, and I don't know how to improve.
My tutor says to watch the News daily to keep up to date, and I try to, but I can't always.
To previous/current Economics students, does the subject make more sense/get a bit easier once you've gotten your head around the key concepts and terms? I feel like this will be the real struggle but then I'll find it better when I understand them. What do you think?

My advice, tackle economics from different perspectives. Your teacher may be teaching you in a manner that is significantly harder/easier to understand.
By watching YouTube videos (ACDC Economics) and reading books from multiple sources, you will have a much more rounded understanding of the subject.
I would not dedicate loads of time to reading the economics news, right now you need to get your ahead around the theory, and yes, it does get easier once you understand the fundamental concepts.

I'd recommend CORE econ. It's an open-source Uni textbook but it puts things into perspective. Even I run an economics blog, Econmedy.com, though I don't think it'll be of much help.
