I was thinking of self teaching myself A Level Economics in a year.
I was wondering if there are any resources which allow me to get an A/A* without soending too much money.
Also has anyone heard of Open Study College?
I currently have no resources as I haven’t done the A Level before

Just buy the textbooks and self teach.

I taught myself A Level Economics and got an A*. You don't need to work with a distance learning provider. I just made notes using information from the textbook and Econplusdal's videos, and did a lot of past papers to practise.

Hey man, what textbooks did you use and did you get the past papers/mark schemes from the exam boards websites?

Which exam board are you doing? I just used the textbook for Edexcel since that's the one I did. And yes, I just got the past papers from the exam board website.

Sorry for the constant questions but I was wondering how long it roughly takes to learn all the content. Let’s say I revised hard for 6-7 hours a day

Is Economics the only A Level you're doing? If so, you should be fine to cover it in a year with 6-7 hours a day, and possibly even less. I did it over the standard two years and only did 1-2 hours a day of Economics, but this was on top of two other subjects.

I’m doing 3 other subjects but I’ve done these subjects before. I’m just resitting so there isn’t anything new I need to learn. I just need to go over them every now and then. Econ is the only new A Level
