Has anyone here taken GCSE Economics? If so tell me what it's like, what it covers and how much maths is involved. Also any good revision guides/books or websites (preferably books).

Which exam board?
Just economic- i.e its about economic theory. At GCSE not much.
If you know your exam board then you can just download the spec.

I would start with.

The website is pretty good as well.

You can also use the CGP books especially the workbooks.

Gcse Economics is amazing. In micro you’ll learn about small scale businesses and markets. In macro which is way more interesting imo you’ll learn about the Bank of England and all of its policies and how the govt controls inflation through its policies. Don’t hesitate to ask anything else.

I did GCSE Economics on the old spec but I'm pretty sure the content will be roughly the same. It was basically split into microeconomics (study of personal economics so things like loans, employment, even the effects of globalisation etc) and macroeconomics (study of the economics around us so government objectives, the EU, tax etc). I found it all incredibly interesting and would highly recommend. And there really wasn't much maths if any. The trickiest stuff we had to do were calculating percentages which is pretty straightforward if you ask me. Check with the exam board specification for the specifics though bc idk if this has changed or not. Anyway, would highly recommend as it teaches you some solid life skills and common sense.
