Cambridge O Level Economics develops an understanding of economic theory, terminology and principles. Learners study the economics of different countries and how these interrelate. They also learn to work with simple economics data and to use the tools of economic analysis. Learners apply understanding of economics to current economic issues.
The Cambridge O Level Economics syllabus provides a foundation for further study, including Cambridge International AS & A Level Economics.
We have updated this syllabus as part of our standard review process to make sure it that it reflects the latest trends and developments in economic theory and education.
To help you deliver the updated syllabus, we are deupdating the support resources for this syllabus including the teacher guide, scheme of work and Example Candidate Response booklets. These resources will be available via the Teacher Support site.
