There is a sister page to help you understand the assessment of this qualification.

Free support

The qualification page provides:

  • a Getting Started Guide (which provides more detailed specification guidance)
  • an editable scheme of work
  • course planners
  • content from past training events
  • options evening materials (poster and leaflet)

The pre-released context document for Paper 3 focuses on a broad context, such as an economy, industry, market or economic issue.

A new context is provided at the very end of November every year and relates to the examination series for the following summer.

Teachers tend to think of using apps as teaching tools in the classroom. Yet, they can also be used for general tasks, such as workload management, productivity, and organisation.

The Economics, Business and Enterprise Association (EBEA) is the professional subject association for everyone interested in the teaching and study of Economics, Business and Enterprise.

It is free to become a registered member and this gives you access to an archive of journals and articles which are older than one year. Paid membership (which is tax deductible) provides you with a monthly newsletter and a termly printed journal.

We have a GCE Economics B Facebook group where you can share ideas and post questions. The group has over 240 members.

As well as the Facebook group there is a new, public, subject community where you will be able to see all posts without logging in, although you will need to log in with your Edexcel Online details to post a comment.

Free resources

The following resources allow you access to support in the form of case studies and up-to-date news stories:

Ingr Nomics is designed to simplify the study of economics. Each video is based on the theory learners need to know and apply to do well in the exams.

Each short video will simplify something that sounds difficult. Learners will see that they can master the concepts and answer exam questions as a result.

Ian Marcousé's Topical Economics case studies are emailed to subscribers every month and are now free to subscribers. These include exam-style case studies with answers as well as revision tests. The stories used are all very current (topical) and, as they are sent in Word, can be easily adapted as you wish.  

The FT's free online subscriptions to students aged 16-19, their teachers, and schools around the world, is a very valuable resource for all Economics teachers.

If you are looking for resources that might be appropriate for a particular topic and are looking for an up-to-date story that has been in the news, it is possible that another teacher had an interesting idea and tweeted it.

Use #EconBT1, #EconBT2, #EconBT3 and #EconBT4 to search for relevant stories.

For Paper 3 you may wish to share resources and ideas using the #EconBPaper3 hashtag.

You can also contribute by sharing interesting stories using the same hashtags.  

There are resources you might be able to use and/or adapt in the GCE Economics B dropbox folder.

Paid-for support

There are no endorsed resources for this qualification but there are a number of unendorsed resources available from commercial providers.

Anforme published student books and teacher packs for each theme as well as revision books.

Anforme has now closed but many Anforme resources are available in the Economics Factory.  

100 worksheets organised alphabetically – easy to use and each with the answers on the back. Incredibly useful for:

• Starters

• Speedy revision – perhaps to break up a double period

• Revision – the pack comes on disk as well as on paper, so you can put 100 worksheets up in front of students prior to the A Level exams – it’s a pretty infinite resource

Time 2 Resources provides worksheets, diagram postcards and presentations

ZigZag provides photocopiable resources as well as teaching packs.

Zig Zag also publishes a resource pack for the Paper 3 research context.
