Stuck for Case Studies? Not sure how many points to write? Always missing the point? Not answering the question?
Economics is a broad subject combining both skills and content, and many students are often at a loss over how to prepare properly for it.
Worse still, some students preparing for it do not even know that they are doing it the wrong way!
Here are some common misconceptions about the subject:
It must be easy!
Economics is not an impossible subject, but it is definitely not easy.
It is just as demanding as any other subject you can choose at JC, if not more.
It is however true that many people take it, and rightly so as it is an extremely practical and useful subject!
All I need
to do is
Memorise, Memorise, Memorise, just as I have always done.
You will need to remember key content, but if this is the only skill you have, do not expect to do too well.
Moreover, the syllabus is so content heavy that memory work is not only meaningless but practically impossible.
Cliché as it sounds, strive for understanding first before memorising mindlessly.
