Our top tips to excel in Economics
Know the basics
Many of the available marks are on fundamental skills, such as drawing graphs or stating the law of demand/supply. Being confident in these is key, as they are often the easiest marks and also provide a good platform for answering more complex questions.
Be specific and use jargon
Many students commonly make the mistake of being too vague. To improve clarity, use the name of the entity instead of ‘us’ or ‘them,’ and avoid using the word ‘money.’ Instead, use terms like ‘income,’ ‘revenue,’ or ‘profit.’
Writing answers in the NCEA format
Markers typically look for a specific structure for an answer, and this is not always clear from the question. Practice past papers and model answers to familiarise yourself with these, and learn the difference between answer instructions like “explain”, “fully explain” and “justify”.
