About our Sec Economics Tuition Programme
What we do during O Level Economics tuition?
The O Level Economics tuition programme is organised into two main areas of study. First, students are taught the basics of Economics as structured by the syllabus content. The establishment of fundamentals is facilitated by the knowledge application to practice questions during our lessons.
Second, there is knowledge integration across chapters to synergise the understanding of Economic concepts and its applications with exam-type questions. The latter is of much importance as students may lack the experience to connect the dots and identify the areas of assessment.
Conceptual understanding of Economics
At the initial stage of learning, we will lay the groundwork for students by examining the basic concepts of Economics, such as the attainment of market equilibrium and contributing factors that affect the changes in price and output. These topical teaching lessons will help students to understand abstract concepts and issues.
Thorough practice of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs)
As one of the three main question types for O Level Economics, the MCQ segment is the easiest to score for students. This means that our class practices will feature a vast pool of questions for students to practise. Also, the tutors will demonstrate exam-smart methods to answer MCQs, like the method of elimination.
Organized study of Data Response Questions (DRQs)
The second element of the examination involves the DRQs, which features unseen text and economic data. The tuition programme will aid students in their development of data extraction, interpretation and analytical skills. They will learn to organise their answers and develop the awareness on the suitable length of elaboration.
Knowledge application for Structured Essay Questions
The third aspect of the assessment relates to the structured essay questions, which contains parts from various chapters. During the economics tuition, students will learn how to identify the chapters tested and source of information to extract and answer the essay questions.
Cross-chapter synthesis of economics knowledge for exam preparation
In preparation for the O Level Economics examination, students are taught to synergise what they have learnt from various chapters to answer exam questions. Cross-chapter knowledge integration is achieved by comprehending the relation of economic concepts and drawing the linkages with practice questions.
When are the IGCSE and GCE O Level Economics tuition classes?
The classes are structured by separate terms to ensure that students can manage the pace of learning, while building up their knowledge and skills to ace the examinations. These lessons will commence with the coverage of topical content enrichment by examining specific chapters, followed by practice questions (Multiple Choice, Data Response and Essay Questions).

GCE O Level / IGCSE Economics Syllabus (2281/2286/0455)
Know what is required for the examination
For those who are unaware, GCE O Level and IGCSE Economics are similar in nature and content of assessment, even though they have different subject codes. The examination format involves two papers, namely the Multiple Choice (Paper 1) and Structured Questions (Paper 2).
Our economics tuition will value-add the learning experience by going beyond the mere introduction of examination formats. Instead, tutors will interpret the recent trends and show students how to better prepare for their tests and final examination. Therefore, many students have benefited from this learning approach as they are prepared for the uncertainties adequately.
Develop economic acumen to explain abstract concepts
As the O Level Economics syllabus content involves Economic concepts that may seem unfamiliar and difficult to understand, our classes will break down the concepts and use easy-to-remember examples to facilitate the comprehension process. By understanding the key terms, students will develop the acumen to explain these concepts confidently and correctly.
Organise your answers to meet examination requirements
For students who aspire to ace the examinations, they must know how to organise their answers for the DRQs and essays. For instance, an organised essay question requires a clear introduction, main body with points in separate paragraphs and a conclusion. For the DRQs, the answer structure depends on the question type, like diagram illustration and factor identification.

The attainment of academic success at the Economics examination is made possible through the appropriate answering techniques. Students who join our programmes will be equipped with the knowledge and methods to tackle questions effectively.
