Skills-Based Approach to Learning Economics
With the recent syllabus change for H1 (subject code: 8823) and H2 (subject code: 9757) economics, the focus has been shifted to case study (100%) for H1 students while the weightage in case study (40%) and essays (60%) remains the same for H2 students.
Notwithstanding the above-mentioned changes, the A level examiner will assess students based on key assessment objectives (AO) which covers knowledge, interpretation, comprehension, application, analysis and evaluation.
Admittedly, this is a fuzzy blackbox for students struggling to grasp economics concepts, let alone be aware of the range of academic skills required for the A level economics examination. To help students better cope with the challenge, our principal economics tutor, Mr. Clive Foo has authored a skills-based book to familiarise students with the skills required to tackle case studies, and will be actively incorporate
the key learning points of this book in his economics tuition classes.
