JC A Level Economics Tuition
The Result-Proven illum.e Economics Tuition Programme
How Do We Teach JC Economics at illum.e?
At our Economics tuition in Singapore, we are dedicated to empowering JC students with the skills and knowledge they need to excel in A Level Economics. At the start of each lesson, our tutors cover and review content knowledge so that students can learn and comprehend each topic delivered. A good portion of the lesson would then be dedicated to applying their knowledge to different types of questions, either through case studies or essays. As a result, this hones their skills in question interpretation, diagrammatic analysis, and evaluation. By engaging students in real-life examples and case studies, we make Economics more relatable and accessible, igniting their passion for the subject.
What Do Economics Tuition Tutorials at illum.e Look Like?
When students enrol in our JC Economics tuition, they are in for an engaging and interactive learning experience. Our tutorials are designed to foster active participation, critical thinking, and a deep understanding of concepts introduced in A Level Economics.
Our tutors encourage active participation in discussions so that students can contribute to a breadth of perspectives. From there, responses will be sampled to help students critically analyse their strengths and areas of improvement. This practice will help them develop an examiner’s point of view and write more successful responses.
Every month, there would also be a lesson (or part of it) scheduled to discuss real-world economic issues or government policies occurring in the present day, such as high inflation, climate change and the Green Plan 2030. Discussions relating to real-world contexts enable students to be aware of these issues, policies and their ramifications on the economy. As such, they can then better appreciate how Economics is ‘alive’ and around them.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Economics Tuition
1. Why study Economics?
At the heart of it, Economics is the study of human behaviour and the decisions made by individuals, firms, and the government. It is a way of thinking. Weighing costs against benefits and considering the impact of a decision on others are all examples of how studying Economics will illuminate a student’s mind. Economics is ‘alive,’ and it is all around us in the headlines and on social media. Learn more about how Economics affects us when you enrol in our JC Economics tuition.
2. Is it easy to score a good grade in Economics?
Economics is considered an Arts subject, where students would need to write comprehensive responses to case study questions or essays. As with any Arts subject, it might not be as easy to score a good grade compared to Science or Math, where there is a correct and objective response. However, Economics is considered a subject that has a more Science aspect amongst the Arts. This also aligns with it being categorised under the Social Sciences.
As such, it can be easy to score a good grade in Economics once a student has mastered the way of thinking through the lens of Economics and can apply appropriate analysis to respond to questions set in the examinations. This can be achieved with practice and the right help. If you want to score well in your A-Levels, you can enrol in our Economics tuition.
3. Should I take H1 or H2 Economics?
Ultimately, the decision is yours. However, we have laid out two key considerations so that you can make a more informed decision.
There is lesser content coverage in H1 Economics compared to H2 Economics, though it is not exactly half per se. Two huge topics that are covered in H2 Economics, which are not taught in H1 Economics, are Firms and Decisions, as well as Trade and Globalisation. For students who are keen to understand the pricing decisions of firms better, taking H2 Economics is a must.
For H1 Economics, the examination comprises two case studies of 40 marks each. For H2 Economics, the examination comprises two different papers. Paper 1 is on case study questions, while Paper 2 is on essays. Students who wish to avoid writing essays altogether could take H1 Economics, though the rigour in applying Economic analysis is still very much needed.
Whether you choose to take the H1 or H2 Econs examination, you can prepare yourself by enrolling in a JC Economics tuition programme in Singapore, like illum.e. That way, you have the skills and knowledge to feel confident in succeeding in your A Levels.
4. How can I excel in Economics?
Economics is not an easy subject for many JC students as it requires a certain way of thinking and thus demands a level of maturity from its students. Regardless, it is still possible to excel in Economics despite the nature of the subject. One must put in more effort to master and internalise the concepts.
Compared to secondary school, where it was still possible to memorise the information and regurgitate it in the examinations, this is strongly discouraged at the JC level. Most subjects, including Economics, require students to understand and grasp various concepts.
Here are three tips on how you can approach Economics at the JC level and excel in it:
1) Understand the big picture first
To excel in Economics, it is important to first look at the big picture and grasp the inter-relationships before delving into the details of specific models or theoretical concepts. Our Economics tuition will help you with this.
2) Ask questions and question the assumptions
Each theoretical model has many underlying assumptions. To come up with counterarguments easily, one could question these assumptions and ask if they hold true in the real world. For example, one common assumption in Economics is ceteris paribus (or holding all other things constant), but this is hardly true in the real world since things are constantly in flux and different variables change all at the same time. Through questioning the various assumptions, you are also able to weigh and evaluate and arrive at a reasoned conclusion and overall stand.
3) Read widely
You need to keep abreast of real-world issues happening today so that you can easily pull out relevant and appropriate examples to substantiate the arguments in your essay. We know that most JC students are starved for time, and so our A Level Economics tuition distils important real-world economic issues for students to understand, think and discuss.
