Would Taking Economics Tuition Help Improve The Grade Three Months To The Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ level economics examination?

The Singapore-Cambridge ‘A’ Level Economics examination is approaching. Although it is a little too late to start the preparation for the examination, it is better to be late than never. Furthermore, with the right approach and a bit of luck, getting an A in the Singapore-Cambridge ‘A’ Level Economics examination is not impossible. The question is, would taking economics tuition help improve the grade three months to the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ level economics examination?

The Economics Tutor

Whether taking economics tuition will help improve the grade three months to the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Economics examination depend to a large extent on the economics tutor the students get. In order to improve the grade, students should get an economics tutor who possesses the experience in conducting intensive examination preparation. It is important to distinguish intensive examination preparation from intensive revision. In intensive revision, the economics tutor revisits the key economic concepts in a lecture style which students are required to understand in order to excel in the examination. This is something which every economics tutor at any economics tuition centre is able to do. However, although intensive revision will help the weak students to a large extent, it is unlikely to help the average students substantially. Generally, the average students have achieved a decent level of understanding of the key economic concepts. Therefore, intensive revision is unlikely to be sufficient to help them get an A in the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Economics examination. Instead, what the average students need is intensive examination preparation. In intensive examination preparation, the economics tutor teaches students how to apply the key economic concepts to answer examination questions, both higher-order questions and lower-order questions, in order to bring their understanding of the concepts to a higher level, which is necessary to help them get an A in the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Economics examination. This, however, is not something which every economics tutor at any economics tuition centre is able to do. Economics Cafe is a premier economics tuition centre in Singapore which is able to the crater for the average students who need intensive examination preparation.

Preparation Materials

Having good preparation materials is as important as taking economics tuition from an economics tutor who is able to conduct intensive examination preparation. For example, if the economics tutor provides students in their economics tuition classes with economics model essays, the economics tutor will be able to teach their students at a faster pace due to several reasons. First, as the students will be able to read the economics model essays before the lessons, they will be able to understand the lessons better. Second, the economics tutor will be able to focus more on the techniques of answering the examination questions rather than spend excessive time on the minute details which the students are able to read up on their own. The leading economics tuition centre in Singapore, Economics Cafe, provides students with many top quality economics model essays in intensive examination preparation.

Study the Past-Year Examination Papers

Due to the limited time to the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Economics examination, students should not spread themselves thin. This is not to say that they should skip topics. Rather, it means that they should focus more on some topics than on other topics. Therefore, students should study the past-year examination papers and focus more on topics that are frequently tested, topics that have not been tested for a long time and topics have not been tested at all, particularly those that have recently been introduced into the syllabus. Although many economics tuition centres in Singapore help students analyze the past-year examination papers, Economics Cafe does a relatively good job in this respect.
