Why AQA Economics?

Our suite of Economics qualifications have been designed to offer students and teachers engaging subject content and variation in the type of assessment.

Our qualifications progress from GCSE to A-level by building on topic knowledge at each stage. Both GCSE and A-level specifications consider a wide range of topic areas and topical issues.

To assist you in delivering our specifications, we offer a comprehensive range of support and resources including direct contact with our Economics subject team, resources to help you plan and deliver our courses and teacher CPD courses.
