Methodology

Economics tuition field seen through the eyes of the tutor

Economics, being a social science, differ from the physical sciences (such as Physics and Chemistry) in that there is no single law to ensure that a certain outcome will occur. This intrinsic feature of Economics carries forward into the way the subject is tested. For example, Cambridge has recently shifted its approach towards assessing students on their critical thinking and higher-order analytical skills. Questions that used to be straightforward are now re-worded into forms that only students with a more flexible appreciation of the subject can fully comprehend.

To keep up with the increasingly rigorous examination requirements, students can no longer rely on pure content-memorisation or regurgitation of model essays. Instead, Mr Koh focuses on a CAM approach to developing a student’s proficiency in the subject. Lessons start with the “Content” foundation which forms the basic layer of understanding that students need to have in order to answer exam questions. Where possible, acronyms or mindmaps are designed to help student break down and internalise the content more easily.

From the content, we distil out the “Parachute Concepts”, which refer to underlying themes in the content that are usually tested in examinations. Mr Koh’s teaching mantra is that while Cambridge can vary the way their questions are phrased, they cannot test students on concepts which are not in the syllabus. Hence, being able to see through a question to pick out the focus, and subsequently apply the underlying Parachute Concepts is important.

With the main content parts distilled out, “Methodologies” are shared to help students answer related questions more intuitively and more quickly. These methodologies can be thought of as “pre-packed recipes” which contain content, contextual and conceptual analysis and evaluative components to help students achieve maximum marks in their answers. In addition, these structured frameworks help students save time in choosing or planning their answers, which will give them an added advantage in an extremely time-sensitive environment.

Economics can be a Challenging field of study

If You Are Reading This, You Might Be Facing One or More Of These Painful Challenges In Your Study of Economics…

  • With so much to study for given so little time, you’re unclear about which areas to focus on for the upcomingtest.
  • You’re tired of staving up late to study for Econs tests (lots of content to memorise!), and not seeing the results that you think you deserve. You tell yourself that you need to study even harder, but secretly wish for someone to tell you that there’s a faster and smarter way to study for Econs.
  • You’ve tried writing long essay answers but still cannot score beyond a 13 or 14 mark (or lower}, because you don’t know what kind of content matters.
  • Your classmates seem to be doing better than you, and they always seem to know which kind of questions to prepare for.
  • You’re lost amidst all the content in your notes and don’t know how to start studying Economics.
