Welcome to the A-level Economics Study Group for 2020/21:party2:
Economics is a really interesting subject so we thought we'd have a thread for all the students taking it, Year 12 and 13.
Here you can get help with any economics questions you have, chat about the invisible hand, share interesting graphs (we love a supply and demand curve, don't we?), how you're revising and anything else you can think of!

Here are some resources we've gathered- if you've got any suggestions please let me know!:yep:

This thread is for anything economics, but to start off discussion, try answering some of these questions:
Which exam board are you doing?
Why did you pick economics?
Are you being entered in for any exams this year?
What's been your favourite topic so far?
What's been challenging in economics so far?
What do you want to study at uni?

Good luck everyone:hugs:

Hi guys,
I do AQA econ
i picked economics because I find it highly interesting, the idea of finding out ways to best use resources and to solve market failures appeals to me.
my favourite topic so far has been inequality and market failure.
the topic i find most challenging is definitely theory of the firm i find those graphs so hard to remember
at university i want to study economics, my plans are to continue until a masters degree, not quite sure about doing a PHD in econ!

hi there
that's an awesome reason to study econ! i find the market failure stuff really interesting too because i'm interested in sustainability (and its intersection with economics) and market failure is important for looking at causes of problems with climate change etc.
i agree with you about the theory of the firm graphs- i've found though that at uni you learn more of the reasoning behind the graphs so it's a bit easier to remember.
best of luck with your uni applications and a-levels:woo:

i do aqa too and there are some model answers on tutor2u. also i would recommend using the phrase 'however, this depends upon...' and try add some nuance to your arguments to show the examiner that you realise econ isn't black and white and that the real world tends to diverge from economic theory. hope that helps
