Econs Crash Course: Last-Minute JC Econs Revision

Teaching key economic concepts, top quality economics tuition

As Promotional & A-levels economics exams loom closer on the horizon, intensive revision becomes more and more important. H1 and H2 JC students may struggle with how complex the Economics syllabus can be, and a structured course can be a game-changer when it comes to exam preparation. Going through a rigourous refresher course in the critical period before your child’s exams can make all the difference.

AceYourEcons is currently offering an Econs Crash Course for H1 and H2 JC and Private Candidate Students, to help ensure that your child is fully prepped for their upcoming Promotional & A-levels exam.

Learning Outcomes and Objectives

The main goal for our Crash Course is to get students ready for their upcoming exams. As such, the main objectives are to:

  • Reinforce Core Concepts: By clarifying and reinforcing the fundamental economic theories, students can develop a strong conceptual framework when they take their exams.
  • Develop Answering Techniques: By practicing and drilling case study questions and past-year prelim papers, students develop an understanding of the right way to organise their answers and fully answer the question.
  • Exam Preparation: Out content will be tailored to prepare them for the examination formats, with tips and strategies to maximise exam performance.

These vital exam skills are strengthened over our two-day course, where we cover both Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, ensuring that students have the chance to clear up their doubts and build confidence in their answering skills.

How Do Crash Courses Help?

Preparing with crash courses

Our crash course differs from our regular tuition sessions by being completely exam-focused. We provide a highly concentrated revision session that fully prepares a student for an exam. An experienced economics tutor will guide students through past essay questions, help them look out for common pitfalls, and provide strategies for crafting high-scoring answers. These short but intensive sessions provide comprehensive exposure to the topic, ensuring that students can confidently take their tests.

Key Benefits:

  • Efficient Use of Time: By compressing the equivalent of weeks’ worth of material into a few sessions, students can cover more ground in a shorter period.
  • Exam-Focused Training: Each course targets key areas that are crucial for success in exams, enabling students to focus on essential topics and concepts.
  • Tailored Content: The material covered in a course can be tailored to reflect the structure and style of specific examinations.

Content and Teaching Methods

Comprehensive Content Coverage
Our crash course ensures that students are aware of the key concepts behind A Level Economics. Throughout the intensive program, students are given the opportunity to engage in case study model essays, and receive hands-on exposure on the ideal answering techniques and structure. We hold graded practices to expose them with different question types, ensuring that they’re fully prepared for whatever the exam can throw at them. Students will experience:
  • In-depth answering techniques: Instructors guide students on constructing well-structured responses, and teach them how to recognise the question requirements in exam papers.
  • Structured hands-on practice with grading: Students are given opportunities to apply learned principles in various scenarios, receiving feedback that helps them gauge their understanding and progress.
  • Swift Feedback: Immediate feedback on practice questions helps students identify and correct misunderstandings promptly. We also offer a 14-day period post-course where they can ask follow-up questions.
