JC2 Economics Intensive Revision Class

Do you need a quick yet effective review of key Micro and Macro concepts during your study break to help prepare you for the GCE A Levels Economics exams? At EconsLab, we organize Intensive Revision Classes to give our students the knowledge, skills and much needed boost of confidence to set them in the right mode to conquer the final exams.

Do not worry about large class size and hence inability to follow the content covered. We accept up to maximum 10 students per class to allow for ample interaction between students and our Dean’s List Star Tutor Ms Foo. With a small class, students would not feel left out. It is also easy for students to ask questions at any point in time without feeling awkward. Students’ struggle in class will not go unnoticed due to the small class size.
