We’ve kept the fundamental economic concepts in our new GCSE specification. It covers traditional economics content, allowing students to explore topical subjects and issues, and develop their analytical and critical thinking skills.

Both papers retain the same clear structure and common layout. We’ve also included a mixture of question styles, giving all students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding.
