IGCSE Economics (0455)

Welcome to our IGCSE Economics section!

All it takes to score high is your analytical skills that you need to use while solving case studies and structured questions. Also you must write fast as the papers are quite long and students usually get confused while selecting 3 questions out of the 7 optional questions. Another significant aspect about IGCSE Economics is that there are a total of around 55 chapters that are quite small and can be easily covered within the time span.

It is worth byhearting and understanding all the definitions and diagrams while revising Economics. Solving tons of past papers, recalling the right formula at the right time and writing precise answers are the skills that you need to develop for scoring high in your examinations.

To help you with your revision, we have compiled some of our economics notes that cover all the major aspects of the 2016-2019 IGCSE economics syllabus. Keep an eye out for extra free bonuses such as examiner’s tips, study tips, fun facts and more!

We hope you enjoy revising this subject and score an A* in it.

All the best!
