H1 Economics Tuition (8823)
At Excel Economics, we do NOT combine H1 and H2 Economics students into the same tuition class. The scope and depth of coverage, as well as exam format are not the same for the two and hence, lessons are tailored-made to ensure students acquire the right content and skills to score well in their respective paper(s).
- Concept Clarification
- Case Study Skills Development
- Review of Students’ Written Work
AIMS OF H1 ECONOMICS SYLLABUS
The syllabus is intended to provide the basis for a broad understanding of economics, within half the curriculum time of the H2 Economics syllabus. Candidates will acquire a broad understanding of basic economic concepts and tools of analysis so that they are able to appreciate Economics from the perspectives of different economic agents. Candidates will also better appreciate the economic issues and policy considerations which they encounter in their everyday life. Specifically, the syllabus aims to develop in candidates:
- an understanding of fundamental economic concepts, theories and principles, and of the tools and methods of analysis used by economists.
- the ability to use the tools and methods of economic reasoning to explain and analyse economic issues, and to evaluate perspectives and decisions of economic agents.
- the habit of reading critically, from a variety of sources, to gain information about the changing economic activities and policies at the national and international levels.
- the ability to use evidence in making well-reasoned economic arguments to arrive at rational and considered decisions.
