Master HSC Economics before Trials
From past papers to memorising the syllabus dot points, we’ve got your Economics study covered
Explore our study tips which will make revising so much easier before your Trial Economics exams, suggested by our Mentors and past Talent students.
Always start with the Economics Syllabus
The syllabus is your go-to guide for everything that will be tested – it would be a wise decision to mark off everything that you’ve studied relating back to the syllabus dot points.
Create dot points for each topic that is mentioned in the syllabus, then you can test yourself by starting on some past HSC papers.
You’ve probably heard this tip ad nauseam, but it’s a tip which truly works! Get together all of the relevant past papers you can find, and dedicate a time to answer as many questions as you can. Turn off the TV, close all those other tabs, turn off your Spotify and focus on the paper – you need familiarise yourself with exam conditions.
After finishing your papers, we highly recommend giving them to your tutors or teachers so they can mark them and provide relevant feedback. If you’re just doing a bunch of past papers and not getting them marked, it’s pointless since you don’t know your strengths and weaknesses.
Familiarise yourself with key phrases
Learning the basic terms will make it that much easier for you to understand the topics you need to study. Understand what the question is asking you – this will ensure that you don’t lose marks on silly mistakes.
Let’s take a look at some basic terms from the 2019 HSC Examination, and what they mean:
Practice a few different questions which test your understanding of these key terms in HSC Economics, and won’t leave you feeling surprised in the Trials.
Stay up to date with the Australian economy
The key to getting top marks in Economics is your ability to write engaging essays, while also incorporating relevant (and timely) statistics to back up the statement that you’re trying to make.
Stay up to date with economic policy, what’s currently going on in Australia at the moment, and have an overall good grasp on current topics. There are so many resources you can use, but we even recommend checking the Australian Financial review (just to start!)
