Who benefits most from online retailing, consumers or businesses? [Year 12 Enrichment Task]
One of the (many) issues for A level students over the coming weeks and months is likely to be keeping momentum as they prepare for university. Perhaps we can help a little with that, by publishing weekly 'enrichment tasks' on the Economics Blog, one each for Year 12 and Year 13 students.
For Year 12's who are hoping to study Economics at university, this will be to help them explore areas of the subject that they enjoy, and might help prepare for writing their UCAS statement in the Autumn. There will be some stimulus material on an A level topic, some links to wider reading, and some “thinking activities”. The aim is to provide some thought-provoking activity, rather than an exam-style essay - and with that in mind, there will not be a mark scheme.
We hope you find these helpful! As a starter this week, here's a task that relates to much of the recent news.
