A Level Economics Essay Questions and Answers

We usually do not focus on past A Level questions in our JC / A Level Economics tuition lessons.

This is because we have observed that the A Level questions have varied very significantly over the years and examiners have been very creative, perhaps, rightly so.

Therefore, we take a forward approach, predicting potential questions rather than practising past year questions (till death!). This is a strategy that has worked extremely well!

Nevertheless, over the years, some students refer to A Level Economics Essay Questions and Answers referred to them by their teachers or purchased off the shelves. Some are mistaken that those are official answers and thus the "gospel truth".

That is unfortunately untrue!

Disturbed by many answers that students have brought up to consult Mr Hong on, he decided to produce answers for selected essays. A sample is provided here.

If you are keen to know Mr Hong's answers to any question, feel free to contact us with the request.

And by the way, did you know that Mr Hong has been scarily accurate in spotting A Level Economics Questions?

You will find students mentioning that in their testimonials. No wonder 80-90% score As!

And based on the LATEST 2022 Singapore A Level H2 Economics examination questions, we spotted more than 50% of the questions!!!
