JC2 Post-Prelims Intensive Revision Class – Main Focus
What you can expect from our Post-Prelims revision intensive courses for Econs:
- Clarification of key Economics concepts,
- Impart of higher order thinking (H.O.T.) exam skills, namely, Application, Analysis and Evaluation,
- Analysis of common question types + A-Level Paper Question predictions,
- Error Analysis – Most common mistakes students make, and must be avoided,
- And many more tips and strategies for JC2 & Year 6 students who attend our Economics revision classes.
Unlike other intensive crash courses that you may have come across for Economics, our Post Prelims Econs Intensive Revision Program does not re-teach merely the content knowledge and topics for the subject. Rather, we are talking about the heavy emphasis on the exam techniques that so many students lack for this paper.
And there are NO registration fees, NO materials fees and NO deposit fees!
JC2 Post-Prelims Intensive Revision – Econs Exam Skills Workshop
For: A-Level JC2, Yr 6 or IB Econs students who need to sharpen up their exam techniques for their H1 and H2 Econs or HL and SL papers
While focusing heavily on the way to secure your distinction by emphasising on the exam techniques of Application, Analysis and Evaluation, the tutor will still highlight the KEY content topics, especially the Singapore context portions, that you must know, in order to be considered well-prepared.
