Year 12 Economics HL

RL IB YEAR 12 ECO HL program has three phases. These phases have been consistently used and proven to be effective over the years ensuring our students are equipped with what they need for the final exam. The first phase is a 38-40 weeks stage that entails our mentors equipping students with all the basic concepts and analytical skills required for tests, SACs and exams. Phase 2 consists of students revisiting all the topics covered with strenuous exam-styled questions which create and develop by the RL economics team. Approaching the final exam period, students will undergo phase 3 whereby they will develop exam skills such as time management and exam techniques including those for extended response questions. Additionally, each week’s lesson will be supported by RL weekly homework assessment to ensure students revise concepts learnt and develop a deep understanding of the contents.
