Due to the demanding A level curriculum, students are unable to keep up with economics lessons due to the large amount of required readings.

AT SIMPLY ECONOMICS, CLASSES CONSISTS OF FULL CONTENT LESSONS TO DEEPEN YOUR UNDERSTANDING. PAST EXAM QUESTIONS PERTINENT TO THE A LEVEL EXAMS WILL ALSO BE HANDPICKED FOR DISCUSSION.

They go into lectures not knowing what to expect and not being able to fully understand the required content. As a result, most students are lacking in content knowledge after each week and it quickly snowballs.

AT SIMPLY ECONOMICS, OUR DISTINCTIVE STEP-UP LEARNING™ PEDAGOGY MEANS THAT EVERY LESSON BEGINS WITH A REVISION OF THE CONCEPTS REQUIRED TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THE LESSON. HENCE, NO STUDENT IS LEFT BEHIND.

In school notes, explanations are long and tedious to aid students’ understanding.

Such explanations,however, are not the best way to present economic ideas in the A level exams due to the time constraint and context. Hence, many students are unable to finish the paper on time.

AT SIMPLY ECONOMICS, NOTES ARE SYSTEMATICALLY ORGANIZED TO FOCUS ON THE NEEDS OF THE A LEVELS – EXPLANATIONS ARE KEPT CONCISE BY DESIGN SO THEY CAN BE REPRODUCED UNDER TIME CONSTRAINT.

During exam periods, the problem mainly lies in the lack of exposure to sufficient types of essay questions and case studies.

They often engage in “passive” learning – that is where you sit in the school lecture and tutorial and expect to do well. Most students also have a problem in application of what they have learnt to the context provided.

AT SIMPLY ECONOMICS, EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON THE APPLICATION OF THE THEORY AND STUDENTS WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO ANSWER HIGHER ORDER THINKING QUESTIONS WITH REGARDS TO THE DIFFERENT ECONOMIES.

Many students also tend to incorrectly memorize graphs and explanations that they see in school without fully understanding the concepts and reason behind it, which is problematic because they may end up just “plugging in” these graphs inappropriately.

AT SIMPLY ECONOMICS, STUDENTS ARE TAUGHT TO CRITICALLY ANALYZE QUESTIONS WITH EFFECTIVE FRAMEWORKS INFUSED INTO CLASSES TO ENHANCE LEARNING AND RECOLLECTION.
