Economics Admissions Assessment Packages
The Economics Admissions Assessment (ECAA) is taken by applicants to Cambridge applying to Economics. This course uses the ECAA to deselect applicants from interview, so strong preparation is critical.
Section One of the ECAA tests a student’s ability to solve unfamiliar maths problems by applying their pre-existing mathematical knowledge. Section Two challenges them to construct a well-written argument in essay form.
Improve your chances of performing well in the ECAA by practicing these skills.
