Economics Leaving Cert Grinds
What will be covered in these Leaving Cert Economics Grinds?
Over the course of the academic year, Ronan will cover all aspects of the Leaving Cert Economics course in his weekly grinds. He focuses on the questions more commonly seen in the Leaving Cert along with the more challenging questions that can prove to be difficult for students. Each student is given a microeconomics book and a macroeconomics book. These books will break down the Leaving Cert Economics marking scheme and they will include up to date information on current economic trends. There is no extra charge for these books.
As time management can be a big challenge in Economics, Ronan will demonstrate how to cover questions to an H1 standard by using keywords outlined in the Leaving Cert Economics marking scheme. This enables students to write exactly what examiners are looking for within the allocated time.
A booklet is also given to each student covering the short questions from the previous ten years. As a lot of these questions reappear these questions are covered in great detail in class.
