Year 11 Economics Bridging Work
“As someone who has a strong passion for social sciences and problem solving, Economics quickly became my favourite subject. It focuses on the behaviour and interactions of economic agents mixed with step-by-step problem solving of both macro and micro economic production, distribution and consumption issues. The subject shines light on very important aspects of worldwide economics and modern challenges facing the world. Whether or not economics is a passion of yours it will impact your life – I find that learning about these principles is very interesting, relevant and beneficial. The course is very professionally laid out, following a clear path with all content clearly ordered, accessible and easy to revise and re-read, making extra study and revision a breeze. If I were to do anything different I would ensure all work was titled and date labelled. When it comes to storing work, teachers ask work to be placed in folders and if I were to have labelled my work from the beginning it would have saved a lot of time when ordering my folder.” (Connor)
